1
Stop Catastrophizing
Catastrophizing is an unhealthy thinking style. Engaging in this thinking style often causes you to jump to the worst-case scenario, even when you have very limited information to indicate that something bad is going to happen. This can contribute to anxiety and sadness. With practice, you can become aware of these thoughts and work to reframe your self-talk.
