In this video I really wanted to show you the questions you need to ask yourself if you find that you’re often overreacting or catastrophising.
As I described in Is Overreacting Damaging Your Parenting, we can take a relatively simple situation and turn it into something far worse; leaving us stressed, anxious and upset. If this is something you’ve noticed yourself doing, then take a few minutes and watch the video. In it I describe the process you’re going through, how you’re getting to that state and then explain the ways to insert a pause, giving you that space to think.
There is no right or wrong, and your reaction maybe the right one for the moment. However, if it’s the only response you have then these ideas will give you more choice in how to respond.
