Your thoughts are the precise mechanism by which you decide your life. "Thoughts" are the succession of words and sentences spoken inside your mind (and at times, aloud). In this episode of CBT 'Best Practices,' we begin with one of the fundamental principles - the importance of your thoughts. Learn a helpful tool to bring greater awareness to how and what you think - in all moments. When you practice observing your thoughts, you understand why you feel the way you do. There is a lot to take in, in each of these episodes include 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!

I learned that I have a lot of anxiety because of my thoughts, inner dialogue. I’ve known this for quite some time but thought I had a strong hold of tools to help. I do not. I need to practice and be stronger yet;

I learned that what you tell yourself, your inner dialogue/ your thoughts are so critically important for determining how you will feel and what you do --your actions and reactions

This session helped me to come up with ideas of how to accomplish tasks for the day. I often have fleeting thoughts.
I learned that I must think about what I am thinking about! I also learned that if I train my fleeting thought, I control how I respond to certain triggers and I can correct my behaviors.

Intro to CBT
I learned that my inner dialogue/thoughts play an integral role in my feelings and responses to situations. Thoughts can be learned behaviors and just like any “bad” behavior, negative thoughts can be transformed, starting with self love.

Overcoming “negative thoughts”
I learned that, as much as possible, I am able to control my thoughts and delve into a more POSSITIVE direction.

My journey
I learned that, through introspection, I am able to modify and change the course of my thoughts by analyzing and changing their trajectory to a more POSSITIVE outcome.

I have been responding to and controlled by my thoughts and
Emotions for all of my life so far. If the relationship with Dave hadn’t ended it wouldn’t have had this opportunity to truly reflect and learn. My future should be happier now that I am starting to overcome the negative, critical and fearful thoughts I have been plagued by.
