With Opposite Action

Advice July 8, 2012


I’ve been under considerable stress and needed a change of scenery. So a dear friend, the fabulous Sasha, made sure I had a relaxing day at the beach. This fun girl’s outing mirrors a simple psychological technique for behavioral activation, “with opposite action”. Basically, when you are feeling low and down don’t allow that mood state to take over do something that will bring your spirits up. It works every time. So next time you are feeling down or stressed do something with the opposite intention and note how your mood changes.
