Just a normal day, I woke up, made myself a tea, and did some anagrams to gain interpersonal skills and allow myself to think better cognitively. Which lead me with an idea:
1. Create a spider diagram of one descriptive word in the centre that describes your core personality and create anagrams of all those leaves that stem from the descriptive word that you create. Write them down.
2. Write a paragraph of how you felt about yourself and what you discovered about yourself.
3. Looked at my diary and took my sertraline and listed things to do today in a specified time-frame
4. Completed critical thinking exercises from worksheets I printed
5. Wrote in my CBT record
This is how I grow 💙
What side of the brain do you use?
The interaction between both is a game of volleyball, a confusing element within its features, a comprehensive account of our genetics and memory processes…
Skills are what motivates us. Experience is what shapes us. Atoms. That’s all we are atoms.
I’ve been working through my compassionate mind workbook written by Chris Irons and Elaine Beaumont when I came across the description of the word ‘compassion’ which cognitively changed my thought process from a negative to a positive:
“Compassion is a sensitivity to suffering in self and others, with a commitment to alleviate and prevent it”
The questions I am exploring in the workbook presently are as follows:
1. Does the word ‘compassion’ have any negative associations for you?
2. List the situations or experiences where your old brain has been triggered; this means the normal emotions such as anger, irritability, guilt, sadness, joy, defensive behaviours such as fight or flight responses.
3. List your new brain competencies;
Imagination, planning, Rumination, Worry and Self-awareness.
4. List your old brain competencies;
Motives; harm-avoidance, competition, caring
Emotions; Anger, anxiety, sadness, joy
Behaviours; fight, flight and submission.
