Change Your Thinking 💕Dr Catherine Cox BSoc/Sci, BA (Hons), PhDPeople often believe that our emotions are due to external factors such as events, experiences or behaviours of others. However,
if we stop to analyse this process we soon see there is a step in between. The way we think or interpret an event or situation influences the way we feel. Here is an example;When we breakdown stress, anxiety or depression we often see a commentary of negative and self- depreciating thoughts. Common types of negative thoughts include:– black or white thinking (“If I disagree with my partner, the relationship is over”),– catastrophising (“I feel depressed this morning…..that means I am going to be depressed forever”),– labelling (“I’m such an idiot”) and,– should/must statements (“I must be the best mum”).Although understandable, these thoughts are rarely helpful and often full of untruths. What you can do however, is break this pattern of thinking thus altering your mood.When you start to notice your mood is getting out of control it is time to stop and focus on your thoughts. What is running through your head? What are you telling yourself? When you have worked out what the thought is write it down. Now it is time to question this thought, challenge it. Ask yourself:1. What is the factual evidence for and against my thought?2. What other ways are there to view this situation?3. How might someone else view this situation?4. Does it really help me to think this way?5. Realistically, what is the likelihood of that happening?If we apply these questions to the above example we may come up with a different thought and thus, consequence. For example:As you can see, when challenging your thoughts it is not about thinking positively about the situation, sometimes that isn’t possible. It is about thinking realistically.Questioning your thoughts will give you the chance to re-evaluate and change the way you feel and react to difficult or challenging situations.Regularly write down and question your thoughts, particularly when you feel upset, angry or stressed. Perhaps start a ‘thought’ diary where you can to take note of the type of thoughts you are having (black or white etc), notice any themes and reflect on the arguments you make for and against these thoughts.This can be difficult and tedious at the start. With practice however, you will soon be challenging your negative thoughts with ease and feeling more content with your current situation.https://sassysurvivors.org.au/
