I’d like to share a few thoughts about ‘Thinking errors/Faulty thinking’ – and a copy of the accompanying questionnaire if you’d find it helpful – as a few people got in touch about it after my recent post that covered how we can think our way into, and with practice, out of trouble.

As per the graphic, it’s likely that we’ve all been involved in such thinking, as we’re only human after all :). The purpose of the exercise is just for us to acknowledge that we can from time to time, for a variety of reasons, get caught up in faulty thinking. If this happens on occasion only, it’s probably not going to be a big deal. But if it’s habitual, it can of course become a problem, especially if we’re not aware of it, and/or it affects our mood.

What can we do to stop ourselves getting involved in and getting carried away with ‘unhealthy’ thinking? Identifying and acknowledging it when we’re doing it next time, and seeing if there’s another perspective we can take on the situation is a good start.   

As above, please let me know if you’d like a copy of the questionnaire to try as an exercise for yourself or colleagues, or just as an aide-mémoire.
