You learn to change the thoughts that are not wholly accurate and true by challenging what you tell yourself and believe. Here, I share the strategy (and best practice) for how to challenge and change your thoughts; and to change how you feel. 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!

Weird Music
While I found the information most helpful, the music was off- almost disturbing, eerie at best. I don’t know if I have some other background music playing on here without my knowledge or not, but it would certainly be something calming or uplifting. I just found the mix of such intelligent, important matter with odd sounds odd.

I learned that my thoughts are like my dreams
I learned that my thoughts are like my dreams and that’s why they feel so real and I think it will help me to disconnect from the body feelings that make my thoughts seem valid when they are not.

Day One
I need to learn how to recognize my thoughts that are not factually based (or important) and replace them with more positive and kind thoughts. I can become overwhelmed with thoughts that are not true and usually negative, I need to make it a habit to ignore those bc they aren’t important. Especially to my mental health.

Beginner intro to CBT - music left me anxious :/
Good information if you’ve never had CBT. The background music was off putting tho , it sounded like the kind of music in a movie where the character(s) were exploring and you didn’t know if something dangerous or if they were going to find something that was bad so left me feeling anxious lol…

Common knowledge
I’ve realized this stuff is sometimes just common sense for some people and we just don’t use it. I do have the power to change my thought process and how my body responds to my mind. I do have the power to stop putting myself and everything I do in life down. I am stronger than I realize.
