Unhelpful Thinking Habits
Over the years, we tend to get into unhelpful thinking habits such as those described below. We might favour some over others, and there might be some that seem far too familiar.
Once you can identify your unhelpful thinking styles, you can start to notice them – they very often occur just
before and during distressing situations.
Once you can notice them, then that can help you to challenge or distance yourself from those thoughts, and see the situation in a different and more helpful way.
Blue text (italics) helps us find alternative, more realistic thoughts.
