In this talk, we’re going to take deeper look at catastrophizing. Catastrophizing is when you either expect the worst to happen, or when an undesirable outcome happens, you think it’s the absolute worst. Getting caught by this distorted thinking pattern will leave you feeling anxious, stressed, and can even make you feel depressed or full of self doubt. Sounds lovely, doesn’t it? We’re going to look more specifically at the two ways is shows up, and then go through the simple steps to overcome it so it can stop hijacking our mood, day or, in even our lives! Take a moment now, and think about it – how do you think about upcoming events or situations that are uncertain? When you don’t know how things are going to go? And another question, when things don’t go the way you want, how do you think about it, and what do you make it mean? When this thinking habit becomes part of our everyday life, it can hinder us from really living – so it’s worth taking some time to work through this one.
