Cognitive training and stress thinking
The ABC of stress thinking
Stress often occurs before we even know it. A certain situation triggers internal responses that we are unaware of. Often people will then relate their stress response to the actual situation ("situation x causes stress").
Cognitive training gives us the tools to open up our internal 'black box'. Through practical exercises we become more attentive of what exactly happens in specific situations. Which effect his has on our thoughts, which emotions are triggered, who in turn are the engine of our behavior. If we want to change the output (=behavior), we will need to adjust the process in the black box (=what we think and feel).
