To cope with and move on from traumatic events
Resilient people understand that setbacks happen and that sometimes life is hard and painful. They still experience the emotional pain, grief and a sense of loss that comes after a traumatic event, but their mental outlook allows them to work through those feelings and recover.
Try the following tip. Regular use will effect positive change in your habits. Before long, it will become second nature.
Challenge Negative Thoughts
When you recognise a negative thought, challenge it with a more balanced way of thinking. Ask yourself, "Is it really true that I can't do it?", "Is it always true?", "Under what circumstances could I actually do it?", "Could I do it if I had some help?".
Negative thoughts lead to feelings of stress and anxiety. Challenging these thoughts helps you to recognise your unhelpful thinking and feel more positive and in control.
