The Girly Thoughts 10-Day Detox Plan - Become a Resilient Woman This Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is a chance to celebrate love in all forms, a chance to acknowledge the special relationships in your life – including the one you have with yourself. A new book from Dr. Patricia O'Gorman, PhD, titled “The Girly Thoughts 10-Day Detox Plan” offers a detox plan to help women overcome their toxic inner dialogue.

The book, subtitled “The Resilient Woman’s Guide to Saying NO to Negative Self-Talk and YES to Personal Power,” is an anthem for loving yourself, according to Dr. O'Gorman. In Girly Thoughts, Dr. O’Gorman starts with the basics, giving a name to those self-defeating whispers that rear their ugly heads when women least expect it. This Valentine’s Day, she is encouraging women to write a love letter to themselves by pledging to overcome their girly thoughts to become a powerful, self-aware and accepting woman.

This practical and interactive guide aims to help women of all ages understand where their self-defeating attitudes and thoughts originate, and explains how to take positive action to affect change not only from within, but through the support of their friends, and most importantly girlfriends. The plan includes the following steps:

1.    Identify girly thoughts. For example: ‘Being married proves I’m lovable,” or “Someone loving me will fill the hole in me.”
2.    Understand the source of negative self-talk to combat self-judgment so that women can stop blaming themselves, feeling alone and plagued by self-judgment.
3.    Change how women think by disengaging from toxic thoughts and behaviors.
4.    Develop essential skills to create a more resilient spirit.

As an internationally renowned psychologist, resiliency coach, and public speaker, Dr. O’Gorman is widely recognized for her work with women and children of alcoholics, focusing on trauma.
