Thought Challenging
When a negative thought comes and I start to feel anxiety, this technique can be used. When the thought is recognized, the following questions can be asked: what evidence do I have to support this thought? What evidence do I have to not support this thought? What would I say to a friend who comes to me and has this thought? Is the evidence 100% true? What is the worst case scenario? How bad is the worst case scenario? This allows us to step out and think about the situation logically, rather than getting lost with the negative emotions that come with the negative thought.
