Stinking Thinking

Today we looked at our thought processes and realised how sometimes our thinking can go to automatic negative or worrying thoughts. We wanted to explore what our thoughts are.  Are they rational and do I have any evidence to validate these thoughts.
An example is my close friend who usually phones me every Friday night, but this week has not phoned. My thoughts automatically turn to “Have I done something wrong to upset them? They must not like me, and that’s the reason they have not phoned me”. We worked on examples like this in our newly created ‘No Stinkin’ Thinkin’ card below (adapted from the ‘Change Your Stinking Thinking’ website).

We worked on how to stop negative thoughts using an interesting article from http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-16265/how-to-stop-negative-thoughts-from-getting-you-down-infographic.html
