Everybody can be critical of themselves sometimes and negative thoughts just pop up out of nowhere! Psychologists refer to these as ‘Automatic Negative Thoughts’ or A.N.Ts.
It is normal to have A.N.Ts from time to time; however, if we let them roam free in our minds, they can shake our confidence and stop us from doing things. One way to challenge or squash our A.N.Ts is to replace our Automatic Negative Thoughts with positive ones.
This lesson is designed to help students to identify their most persistent A.N.Ts (Automatic Negative Thoughts) and develop ways to focus on more positive, enabling thoughts.
