EP#109: Black and White Thinking

When we are stressed or anxious, our brains can get stuck in Black and White thinking. Also known as “all-or-nothing thinking” or “Dichotomous Thinking,” this flawed thought pattern can keep us stuck in a spiral of shame, blame, judgement and criticism. It also blocks our brains from seeing the potential solutions that are within the gray area of the situation.

Today, I am going to walk you through a series of steps to take when you recognize your brain is following this unhelpful thought pattern so you can avoid doing the same.
