Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a proven method to change actions and attitudes. You can implement some of these methods on your own. Here's how:
- Create a log of events, your feelings, and thoughts about what happened. Do this 3-4 times each day for a week. Take note of any patterns that either raise or lower your mood.
- Distract yourself from negative thoughts by thinking about something positive.
- Take time to recall a happy time when you start thinking negatively.
