Stress, anxiety and depression are caused by an ongoing cycle of negative thoughts 🔄 These thoughts cause physical feelings and emotions which in turn cause negative behaviours.
Do you recognise any of these thoughts in your daily chatter? The first step to mental wellness is the regular checking with yourslef and really getting familiar with the messages and themes of your thoughts. Try setting aside a time in your day to reflect on your messages and emotions. You may find journalling or apps a really useful tool in self reflection.
An evidence based approach to help break this cycle is creating tools that target each component through a technique called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. More on this next time 🙏🏾
