Your Behaviors are defined as your 'actions' and 'reactions'. Your behaviors are the result of how you feel and what you think. In this episode of CBT 'Best Practices', I help you illuminate your thoughts (as the starting point for understanding your behaviors) together with the best practices for how to change your behavior; to be in control of what you say and do, because of the power that you hold to change your perceptions and thinking. This episode ties it all together: your thoughts, feelings and behaviors as the three eminent elements of CBT. Let's dive into this together! p.s. There is a lot to take in, in each of these episodes of CBT 'Best Practices', including takeaway strategies and tools that you can immediately apply in your life! Listen with a way to take notes so that you can turn each episode into the change that you seek in your life! Well done!! Please join me for more CBT 'Best Practices' here! Namaste!

Challenging your thoughts
My emotions are based on my feelings and feelings are based on my thoughts how I behave is how I feel and I feel based on my thoughts. Challenge my thoughts What was I just thinking? Origin of feelings and behavior Where’s the evidence for my thoughts Prove my thought to be true, is it valid? Look for alternate ways to think of a situation Examine what I know to be true

I felt heard
I need to stop and thinking before reacting. Think about how i would like to react to an unpleasant situation instead of automatically getting angry or defensive

Okay but what about when you have an answer to the question? Where’s the evidence that I freak out at social gatherings and then it’s like let me pull out my scroll and now I’m remembering all this?
It is really invalidating to hear that she thinks if we feel overwhelmed by our emotions it’s cuz they aren’t valid because when emotions are valid we “don’t” feel overwhelmed. Makes no sense.
