Stop feeding the monsters in your head – water the seeds instead

  We all have days where the Negative Nancy/Ned in our head spirals out of control. Where lack of sleep, pain or illness, our environment or whatever it might be, gets the better of us. But our mindset is key here to how far we allow ourselves to spiral down the rabbit hole of shitty thoughts. We all have good and bad days – that’s part of life.

How to navigate your shitty thoughts

Around 80% of our thoughts are negative.  Does that number surprise you? In my twenties I did some volunteering as an Appropriate Adult for vulnerable adults being interviewed by the Police. (Side note: a lot of my mates will have a giggle at me having the title “Appropriate Adult”) 😆 As part of that training we learned about mental health and anxiety provoking thoughts that can lead to behaviour change during interviews.

Grab an umbrella {the power of positive thinking}

Are you aware of quite how much your thoughts are influencing your behaviour (and as a result, your decisions and actions)? A good example of how our thoughts impact our behaviour is from the time I spent living in London. Over one summer, we had a few weeks of good sunny weather (almost unheard of in London!) and everyone was noticeably happier. One day, I stepped out of the door and it was grey, rainy and miserable. I shrugged my…

F*ck positive thinking (when you’re depressed and suicidal)

Hey guys I was just reflecting on a conversation I was having with a new client last week. He’s in a pretty bad way, he’s very depressed and he’s attempted suicide a number of times now. To watch the video on YouTube click here. During this initial call we had, he mentioned how many people had talked to him about positive thinking – you know, “just think positively.” I know a lot of people who are depressed, or who are feeling…
