Tracks and pathways in our thinking – Michelle Sparkes

Tracks and pathways in our thinking

If you’ve ever walked in the bush you will have noticed that some tracks are easier to walk down than others because they are well-formed, usually the result of plenty of traffic or use. It’s the same with our thinking. If we want to think differently in order to have new, healthier or better life experiences, we are going to have to put in the effort required to shift out of old habitual (well-formed but unhelpful) tracks in our thinking and to develop new pathways. Are you aware of some the ways you habitually think that lead you to feeling anxious, depressed or to engage in disordered eating behaviours?
