Hello. I’m a licensed psychologist with 35 years of clinical experience working with psychotherapy clients. During the last eight years of my l practice, I developed a simple, easy to learn, exercise designed to manage mood and change behavior. The exercise involves Cognitive Restructuring, i.e. changing one’s thoughts in order to change one’s emotions. How we feel derives from what we think. Cognitive Restructuring is a tenet of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
The TEN MINUTE COGNITIVE WORKOUT is a simple, efficient version of Cognitive Restructuring.
I’ve taught the exercise to many of my clients. Those clients who consistently performed the exercise experienced a rapid improvement in their psychological symptoms.
I’m excited to share this technique in my new book, THE TEN MINUTE COGNITIVE WORKOUT: Manage Your Mood and Change Your Life in Ten Minutes a Day.
Doing this simple exercise can improve mood, increase self-confidence, and foster a positive outlook on life. These changes in mood, self-concept, and outlook can produce positive changes in behavior. As the title suggests, the exercise requires an investment of only ten minutes a day.
“It isn’t what you have, or who you are,
or where you are, or what you are doing
that makes you happy or unhappy.
It is what you think about.”
