Definition of negative thinking

– Negatively framed interpretations of what we think is happening to us
– These thoughts have a negative effect on our mood and the way we are feeling

The more we give in to our negative thoughts the STRONGER they become
We might not be aware of the negative thought at first because it is a habit
It might come into our mind very quickly
“What was that!”
