This week I spent a lot of time at work which was pretty boring. We don’t get many customers as the weather cools down, people are less inclined to buy ice cream when it’s cold and outside.
PRACTICE ROOM (TUTORIALS)
CLASSROOM (THEORY & ANALYSIS)
OUTSIDE (CREATIVITY, PRODUCTIVITY & THE BRAIN)
- Set a timer
- Spend 30 minutes in this ‘room’

- If you want, read more at bananatreelog.com/blog/challenging-cognitive-distortions

I personally am having a hard time with this, figuring out how to reframe negative thoughts will definitely take practice. I’m also finding that my stress level hasn’t decreased after reframing a thought because my mind jumps back to the initial idea that caused the stress in the first place instead of holding onto the new reframed version.
