Your thoughts cause your moods.
Your brain is really good at making you feel exactly what you're thinking. We'll have "automatic negative thoughts" that lead us to fume on something that may not be "true"
Often the more our thoughts cause us distress, the more likely they are to be distorted.
To fight these distorted thoughts, psychologists use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Cognitive behavioral therapy is a form of psychotherapy that treats problems and boosts happiness by modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts.
Beat Stress is a companion app for this exercise in CBT. You may have heard it called "the three column technique" or "catch it, check it, change it.
The main point of this CBT is changing your thoughts. If we let ourselves sit and cycle through these type of negative thoughts, we'll just make our lives miserable.
So instead, we'll incorporate our challenges and write down what is a better version of our thought might be.
Beat Stress invites you to challenge your negative thoughts and create a better mindset.
