Viral TikToker Employs ‘Gentle Parenting’ for Self-Motivation and Healing

In the world of TikTok, a social media platform known for its viral dance trends and hilarious challenges, a user named Kaylizzle (@kaylizzlebizzle) has recently sparked a conversation about productivity and self-motivation. Kaylizzle’s approach, which she refers to as “gentle parenting,” has resonated with millions of viewers, offering a fresh perspective on how to tackle everyday tasks that can often seem daunting.

In her viral video, Kaylizzle demonstrates how she uses gentle parenting techniques on herself to get motivated for the day. She communicates with herself in a nurturing manner, encouraging herself to get up and start her day. “I understand it’s hard, but we need to rise and shine,” she says in her video. This compassionate self-talk has struck a chord with the TikTok community, with the video amassing nearly 3 million views.

The concept of gentle parenting primarily involves empathy, respect, and understanding to cultivate desirable qualities. This approach is often used in child-rearing, where parents emphasize compassion and consistent boundaries to achieve their objectives. However, as Kaylizzle shows, it can also be applied to self-motivation and productivity.

The technique of reparenting, often used by therapists to model healthy relationships for their clients, can also refer to individuals providing themselves with the emotional tools they may have lacked during their upbringing. According to Courtney Council, a licensed mental health counselor, this approach can be incredibly beneficial.

Council explains that an adult suffering from insomnia, for instance, might become frustrated and resort to negative self-talk. However, by applying the principles of gentle parenting, they could learn to treat themselves with kindness and patience, reducing negative feelings and potentially increasing their chances of falling asleep.

The positive self-talk demonstrated by Kaylizzle is also a crucial component of mental health. Council emphasizes that our internal narrative shapes our perception of the world and our experiences. Positive self-talk fosters self-trust and self-compassion, especially during stressful moments.

Many TikTokers have expressed their eagerness to incorporate this technique into their daily routines. One user, @averysexyhotgirl, thanked Kaylizzle for sharing her approach, stating that she would use it to manage her work-related anxiety.

This trend of self-motivation through gentle parenting is not just applicable to individuals but can also be beneficial in a work environment. For instance, those in the Standing Desks / Office Health industry might find it useful when deciding on how to choose the best standing desk or an electric height adjustable standing desk. The process of making such decisions can be overwhelming, but by applying Kaylizzle’s approach of gentle parenting, individuals can navigate these choices with less stress and more confidence.

In conclusion, Kaylizzle’s viral TikTok video has opened up a new conversation about self-motivation and mental health. Her approach of gentle parenting towards oneself offers a fresh perspective on tackling everyday tasks and challenges. Whether it’s getting out of bed in the morning or choosing the best sit stand desk for your office, a little self-compassion and positive self-talk can go a long way.

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Great service from Guy and the team at Ergomotion! Helped with all my queries and was able to source a standing desk part for me when many others weren't able! Highly recommend!

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
