Four questions for your thoughts

Dr Daniel Amen has an incredible, simple approach to the automatic negative thoughts that sometimes randomly pop into our brains. He encourages us to challenge them back rather than just accepting them as true. 

Here's the four question he tells us to ask those questions that often make us feel uncomfortable. 

  1. Is it true?
  2. Are you absolutely certain it's true?
  3. How does thinking this way make us feel?
  4. Would our life be better without that thought?

Don't just accept the thoughts you don't like. 

Challenge them.
