“What if” thoughts can be challenging to say the least. But playing the “what if” game rarely works. With practice, you can learn to recognize and reframe this thinking style.

What if’s..
This game Gets us to try to predict the outcome Hard to undo this game Exhausting Style of thinking A start is to notice when the what if is there. Replace with “what is” E.g what if I mess up…. What is true is that I will continue to work to be prepared

What if to what is
I can reframe this way of thinking to the here and now. What is true…
