Stress can often make you focus on your perceived weaknesses and flaws. When you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed, it’s common to end up criticising and blaming yourself. A way of building up our resilience to stress is to learn to recognise your negative thought patterns and actively work to refocus your mind. In this exercise, we will use the technique of positive self-talk. I will help you to identify some of your key personal qualities and strengths. All you need for this exercise is a pen and paper.
9. How to Switch off the Mind
Sleep is when our body recovers and does the majority of our emotional processing. However when we are stressed, it is often very difficult to fall asleep.

In this session, Dr. Catherine will lead you through a guided Imagery exercise to switch off the mind.
