Stay With The FactsValor Counseling
No I am not talking about the media or our current political landscape. Staying with the facts is a great way to help calm the mind. When our mind worries it tends to try and tell the future. It does this so we feel we can better prepare ourselves for negative events. Our mind however is not a good fortune teller. Our mind often just tells us worse case scenarios which we are left with feeling the associated negative emotions.
To help calm the mind and stay with the facts, ask yourself some of these questions.
What are the facts?
How do I know this to be true?
What am I assuming?
Is this a problem right now?
Am I trying to predict another’s actions or thoughts?
Can I do anything about this problem right now?
