“Thought journal” is a tool based on Cognitive reframing. This goal-oriented, masculine tool focuses on reframing our negative and unsupportive thoughts into positive and more supportive thoughts. These drive our emotions and our emotions drive our behavior and our behavior, in the end, can have an effect on changing challenging situations.
WHEN TO USE IT:
Feel free to use it often or even daily to create a ritual of self-acceptance and self-reflection, but especially when you notice that your emotions are based on cognitive distortions – aka twisted thoughts.
At the same time, it is important that the emotions aren’t overpowering and that you can change the challenging situation. If your emotions are strong and you cannot impact the situation, then it might be better to use the “Something is” tool.
