Ep 014: Wellbeing: Thinking about your thinking

This episode, Richard and Pilar continue their focus on wellbeing at work and discuss the role of our thinking.

We look at the importance of noticing our thinking – what we’re saying to ourselves – how easy it is to slip into ‘automatic pilot’ mode, along with the various unhelpful thinking traps that can fall into. Do you find yourself predicting what’s going to happen in the future? Assuming the worst in a given situation? Believing that how you feel right now will last forever?

We discuss what we can do about these thinking traps, emphasizing the importance of noting and reflection, using the skills associated with psychological flexibility.

Remember: a thought is just a thought. It’s not a signpost for action.
