Rumination is a Compulsion, Not an Obsession, and That Means You Have to Stop

The process of continuously thinking about the same thoughts, which tend to cause you to feel anxious or sad, is called rumination. It keeps you stuck and unhappy and is a barrier to your growth.

Decrease Stress by Using Your Breath

Deep, conscious breathing can be used as an anchor to stay in the present moment. Your  breath can also be used to feel the energy of your emotions, especially the uncomfortable ones that you may try to escape.

Checklist of Cognitive Distortions

Cognitive distortions are habitual ways of thinking that are often inaccurate and negatively biased. Learn how to spot them and untwist your thinking.
