How to overcome cognitive disorders

All-or-Nothing Thinking: Try to recognize and challenge this type of thinking by finding evidence of shades of grey and recognizing that few things in life are completely one way or another.

Over-generalization: Look for exceptions to the rule and consider alternative explanations. Challenge yourself to look for evidence that goes against your overgeneralization.

Mental Filter: Focus on the positive and try to be mindful of any negative thoughts that come up. Work on finding a more balanced perspective.

Disqualifying the Positive: Acknowledge and celebrate your successes. Make a list of your achievements, no matter how small, and remind yourself of them regularly.

Jumping to Conclusions: Practice being more mindful and present in the moment. Try to be aware of when you are making assumptions and challenge yourself to gather more information before jumping to conclusions.

Magnification or Minimization: Try to see things from a more balanced perspective by acknowledging your strengths as well as your weaknesses. Make a list of your positive qualities and accomplishments to help remind yourself of your strengths.

Emotional Reasoning: Learn to recognize and challenge your emotions. Just because you feel something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s true.

Should Statements: Replace “should” with “could” or “I would prefer” to remove the pressure and negativity associated with should statements.

Labelling and Mislabeling: Replace harsh language with more neutral or positive language. Practice self-compassion and be kinder to yourself and others.

Personalization: Remember that not everything is your fault or responsibility. Practice letting go of blame and negative self-talk, and work on developing a more balanced perspective.
