Struggling to do the exercise?

If you don’t instantly resonate with any unhelpful thought patterns, another way to identify them is by looking for patterns in your own thoughts or speech. For example, if you find yourself saying “I should” a lot then you may be experiencing the ‘Should’ unhelpful thought pattern.

You could write down your thoughts in a journal and try to spot the patterns and match them up to the list of unhelpful thought patterns.
