Thinking Errors and Stress
Your thinking plays a bigger role in creating your stress than you might imagine. How you look at potentially stressful events or situations can result in greater stress, less stress, or even no stress.
The important skill you need to master is knowing how to identify your stress-producing thoughts and how to change the way you think.
The key here is recognizing your thinking errors. Your thinking errors capture the negative, distorting elements in the way you see your world, others, and even yourself.
Once you've identified an error, the next step is correcting that error. You re-frame the situation or event, bringing a more sensible you into the picture.
