Much of life is out of our control. Join us in this session to learn to pay more attention to what you can control- your internal reactions and mental activity. Learn what you can stop doing that accomplishes nothing but to make things worse than they already have to be. Challenging times are stressful. It’s important to acknowledge that. But let’s minimize the self-created and self-inflicted stress.

Session Objectives:
-Grasp that you have control over what goes on inside of your head. If you don’t, then who or what does?

-Have a “rapid response” defense system to combat negativity and the brain’s negativity bias.

-Be more aware of your internal self-talk and shift what you’re dwelling on when it is counterproductive.

-Counter cognitive distortions with rational thinking.

-Increase mindfulness and learn to rest your mind periodically to enhance creativity, concentration, and productivity.

-Break the cycle of “obsession paralysis” and the habit of blowing things out of proportion and making them worse than they really are.
Melt your own "mental snowballs."
