How Do You Want to Feel?
Feelings are the conscious experience of your emotional reaction. Your feelings arise out of what you think. Your feelings are incredibly powerful and it can seem at times, as though they overtake or control you. Here we discuss the relationship between your thoughts and feelings; and I share helpful cues for how to best understand why you feel the way you do; and how to change how you feel. Join me here again for another episode of CBT 'Best Practices' to learn how your feelings affect your actions and reactions.

In this episode of CBT 'Best Practices' we begin with one of the fundamental principles - the importance of your thoughts. Learn a helpful tool to bring greater awareness to how and what you think - in all moments. When you practice observing your thoughts, you understand why you feel the way you do.

How the Stories You Tell Become the Inspiration for Your Life
How the Stories You Tell Become the Inspiration for Your Life
The stories that you tell reflect how you think. What you tell yourself, you believe. What are the stories you tell? What are the stories of your life that you need to rewrite; to choose a different narrative? How can your "stories" better reflect accurate perceptions as you become an 'observer'; and as you ask the questions that will help you understand and know what is true? "The stories we tell reflect the way in which we think; and how we make sense of what happens.  The challenge is to tell the stories that convey what is true; and to keep our mind and heart open to each experience and what it has the potential of teaching us." - dorothy ratusny Please join me in this Channel for more CBT 'Best Practices'!
