Unhelpful thoughts …

Do you ever jump to conclusions? I know I do. I get into a bad habit of assuming the worst.

money box 003I found a handout today while sorting my files. It is from The Centre for Clinical Interventions.

It is a good reminder not to get into bad thinking habits such as jumping to conclusions. The leaflet says:

‘We jump to  conclusions when we assume that we know what someone else is thinking (mind reading) and when we make predictions about what is going to happen in the future.’

I often stumble of over this one – especially if I am feeling a bit low. Truth is that we never know what someone else is thinking! So why not assume they are thinking something good?




Creativity continued

I am trying to tap into my creativity and I am exploring writing about feelings. Here is one about anxiety 🙂

Yallingup 004ANXIETY

I am short of breath

Something bad is going to happen

There are so many things to remember

I am overwhelmed

What have I forgotten to do?

I should have this sorted by now

I need something to relieve the pressure in my head

Something to eat … a pill …

Perhaps I can scrub the floor instead

Use up some of that nervous energy

Yes, that is a better idea
