Just a few reminders we have Imogene Caterer coming along to do a talk on Sept 22nd and that there is an opportunity to do the free jive session this Sunday 20th July at Cheltenham Town Hall from 11pm to 12 noon! Plus we are arranging a social evening away fro our usual venue on Monday 13th Oct!
Some interesting stuff to ponder on last night especially about whether or not we suffer because of a genetic problem or if it's outside influences that cause us to be as we are?
Negative thoughts and how to catch, challenge and change them is a recurrent topic at our meetings. It can be so so difficult to recognise those thoughts let along catch them and change them. One of our members has some info sheets on the CBT way of dealing with negative thoughts and how to deal with them, I will try and upload these on the web site. We may be familiar with some of the methods CBT use already such as recognising when we are thinking in particular way those can be; Black and White thinking, Catastrophizing, Filtering etc. The sheets are a reminder as to how we can get into a positive mind set, even it we have to pretend we are loving life and having fun. Perhaps this is something we can look at again in the coming months.
Hope the week is kind to you!
