Thought stopping

Recommended Posts

Thought stopping is a useful technique to interrupt negative thinking.

Say STOP! STOP! to yourself, as loudly as you can, in your head and simultaneously imagine a stop sign. 

Immediately distract yourself by concentrating on regulating your breathing, relaxing, thinking of something positive or imagining something pleasant.
