Watch this video for practical ways on how to change your mood, especially when that mood is anxiety or sadness.
Usually, we are most in tune with our emotions, like anxiety. Hardly, do we slow down to identify the automatic thoughts that precipitated the emotions! The belief is that changing the thought will help change the emotional reaction and response you feel.
This is based off of CBT (Cognitive behavioral therapy), which I hope to blog more about more in the future. 🙂 CBT is great because it empowers YOU by giving you the tools to better you mental and emotional health. We need to make sure to attend to our mental well being, just as we do our with our physical health. Practice journaling your automatic thoughts and replacing them with better ones. This is exercise for your mental health! My hope is that we would get stronger (mentally) if we practice these exercises together.
