In conversation today my husband told me something I found worrying. My brain immediately latched onto it and started feeding me lots of scary thoughts. I consequently felt fearful .
As soon as I could, I put everything I was feeling and thinking into a model and felt a bit better afterwards. I carried on with my day but noticed all the scary thoughts kept on flooding back into my mind. I remembered the thought from my intentional model which I kept repeating to myself. The scary thoughts would die down a bit but gradually return. Again I would recognise my brain was once again trying to take over and I’d again think of my better thought.
Is there any better way to stop the negative thoughts bombarding me?
