Thoughts, Feelings and Actions

We all experience both big and small problems. To better solve the bigger problems, it helps to learn how your thoughts, feelings, and actions are connected.

Imagine you have an upcoming test, and you think “I’m going to fail”, because of this thought, you start to worry. You are so worried that you feel sick just thinking about the test. The feeling is so uncomfortable, you decide not to revise or attend school.

The thought (“I’m going to fail”) led to a feeling (worry), which led to an action (not revising/attending school). What might have changed if you had a different thought?
