How we think

‘The way we think about things can itself be highly stressful. If we are critical of ourselves, lose perspective on things, and focus only on the negatives, then this is going to make our depressions much worse. If you can learn to be less critical and more kindly to yourself, find ways to keep a sense of perspective and cope, even in dark times, then this just might give your stress system a chance to settle down and heal’
Paul Gilbert ‘Overcoming Depression’
