What is unhelpful thinking?
Unhelpful thinking is when we have negative thoughts that impact our ability to cope.
We all have days where we think we can’t do anything right, that we’re hopeless, or that bad things always happen. But sometimes these passing thoughts can become more frequent, forming patterns of thinking that can lead us to become depressed.
Some examples of unhelpful thinking may include: “Nothing ever goes right for me”, “I always mess up”, “My boss thinks I’m stupid”, or “I got a low test score – I must be useless”.
Avoiding common ‘thinking traps’
These types of thought are commonly referred to as ‘thinking traps’. It’s easy to get caught up in thinking traps, but they can hinder our success and cause a great deal of distress.
Through this new self-help module, you can find out more about common thinking traps and learn to identify them. Through information, activities and case studies, you’ll pick up some useful techniques for breaking the cycle of unhelpful thinking.
