If you are ever stuck in a cycle of negative thinking and you want to break out of it, here’s how:

  1. Separate your thoughts from your feelings
  2. Recognise the thoughts that are harming you
  3. Stop these automatic thoughts
  4. Replace them with more helpful thoughts.

If you find any of these steps difficult to do a first, you’ll find instructions on how to do each elsewhere on the blog (use the search box on the Welcome page). If that’s not enough, or if you want more instructions, refer to your Googlescope.

If that’s still not enough guidance, I’ll be launching my online courses soon. There will be one that’ll tell you how to change unwanted thoughts and feelings.
