Changing how you think can change how you feel
You can’t always change what has happened in your life but you do have the power to change how you think about it. It is all about learning how to speak to yourself in a helpful way because this can change how you feel.
Thinking in a more helpful and realistic way encourages you to try new things and helps to put things in perspective – no matter what your situation.
Changing the way you think to be more realistic also:
- helps to calm you down
- reminds you that no one is perfect and that no situation is perfect
- focuses your thinking on the positives of a difficult situation.
The good news is that there are ways to help you to focus your thoughts on more realistic and helpful thinking.
