CBT Day - Negative Thinking, Part IV

Hi Diva, I would suggest that you must try and channel the negative thoughts into positive ones. Try making a list of all the things you love and things that make you feel happy. This may help to change your thinking pattern and help you think more positively. Sylvie, Bilingual Health Educator

Weekend Prep.

Members, We all have good and bad days. On good days it seems that we are motivated to conquer the world but on bad days it€™s easy to not even move from bed. Finding motivation to overcome your fears can be hard on good days but even harder on bad days. We all know the benefits of being in control of our fears; self approval, a sense of accomplishment, enjoyment€¦ just to mention a few but it can just be hard to find the enthusiasm to get there some days. Some ways to keep on plan is to organize activities for yourself to do, both pleasurable activities and activities that give you a sense of accomplishment. Some ideas are donating to a good cause, going to the gym, helping your kids with their homework. There are plenty of other ways to get motivated to seize each and everyday too. As we prepare for the weekend, please share with us how you€™ve kept motivated on those not so good days. Sylvie, Bilingual Health Educator

CBT Day

Members, Today will be our last discussion on overgeneralizations. Over the last two weeks we have reflected on our individual thoughts patterns and reactions to comments made by others, tracked and learned more about them and the negative impact they can have on our moods. Continue to focus on this topic working towards achieving your goal and keep tracking your progress. You may see improvements in some areas but not in others. Keep your plan updated and modify as you need to along the way. If you are encountering difficulties, please feel free to ask questions. Sylvie, Bilingual Health Educator
