Ways to tackle catastrophic thoughts.

The image below is a post from out Instagram page.

Here are some examples of catastrophizing:

  • “If I fail this test, I will never pass school, and I will be a total failure in life.”
  • “If I don’t get this write I will have a terrible life”
  • “If I don’t recover from this quick I will die”

Doctors also call catastrophizing “magnifying,” because a person makes a situation seem much worse, dire, or severe than it is. Catastrophizing can lead to depression in some individuals. Fortunately, there are several methods to address the condition and avoid catastrophizing.

Fast facts on catastrophizing: The first fact is it can be a result of anxiety, another fact is most people do it this at sometime in their life. Finally another fact is there are doctors who can help address this.

Some ways to cope include managing stress, learning being healthy, staying active, getting enough rest, avoiding triggers (if possible) and finally learning coping techniques.

If a person has an underlying medical condition, such as depression, a doctor may prescribe antidepressant medications to help. However it is important not to overthink it or stress about it.

That’s it for this post I hope you have learnt something new that can be helpful for you.
