Ever felt like this?

If you subscribe to my series, Mental Health Moment, then you heard me talk this past week about thinking styles that really make you stress out. In the mental health field, we refer to these as cognitive distortions.

We all have rules and filters that we run our thoughts through as we have new experiences. When we’re kids, we learn how life works by watching others around us. We pick up on what they use to manage their lives.

So that’s what we use to figure out how to respond. It affects us at home and at work.

Overall, there are about 15 cognitive distortions, but these are the main ones that can add to your stress.

See if you recognize any of these in your life.

As always, you can subscribe to Mental Health Moment on Amazon Alexa, Apple Podcast, Google Podcast and Spotify. And you can always visit here to read or listen to the latest episode.
