Do you ever find yourself in a negative flurry of thoughts? It feels like you just can’t snap out of it and you’re weighed down by a constant feeling of doom and gloom. If so, you’re not on your own. The ‘but flip’ technique that I shared in this weeks live video helps you to change the final destination of your thoughts to something more positive and empowering, helping to feel more in control and optimistic. This is an NLP technique both my myself and clients have used for years. It helps even the most negative of minds feel more empowered and confident. You might be telling yourself for example, that you’re not qualified enough to go for a new job that you really want, and instead of settling for that being your fate, you jump in at the end of your sentence with a “BUT”…and then change it to something more positive such as: “BUT there’s nothing to lose if I do go for the job” or “BUT I won’t know unless I try”. Can you see that by adding “but” at the end of the sentence, it gives you an opportunity to change the conversation to end on a more positive note? And the best bit is you will feel more empowered to take action. This is how you can begin to make a real shift in your mental health and start to feel more empowered and confident. The next time you catch yourself having a slanging match with yourself, use the but flip to change the destination of not only your thoughts, but the destination of your actions, that in turn the direction of your life.
If you want to take it to the next level and make a deeper, lasting impact in your mental health, use the but flip technique alongside a Warrior Wristband. This simple band is a form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and will help to break the negative thought patterns on a deeper, unconscious level. Find out more about Warrior CBT Wristbands
