Techniques To Avoid Catastrophizing


There is little doubt that not getting enough sleep at night causes a lot of problems. Beyond the direct health issues that may occur with regular lost sleep, indirect inattentiveness and lost concentration can have further, wide ranging effects. The bottom line is that life is a struggle for those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other related issues. Fortunately, Dr. Jay R. Goldman has many treatment options available that can turn your life around for the better. And, when you are finally getting restorative sleep, all of life’s issues can seem so much smaller.

One issue that many cognitive-behavior therapists have to deal with is clients who catastrophize. Basically, these patients end up on a catastrophic line of thinking that plagues their lives. However, as recently discussed by Psychology Today, there are a number of ways to deal with this behavior.

  • Specifics – It is important to realize that just because someone feels one way, doesn’t mean everyone feels the same way. If one minor aspect of your life is failing, it doesn’t mean your whole world is failing. Don’t overgeneralize the things going on in your life.
  • Sleep – For those suffering from sleep disorders, this is obviously easier said than done. However, getting quality sleep can absolutely stop those catastrophic thoughts from building up. Sleep deprivation can make people feel more hypersensitive to threats.
  • Physical – Like sleep, exercise can do a number on your catastrophic thoughts. Get some fresh air, take deep breaths, and do a little stretching. All of these things can have a positive impact on your life.

Are you ready to attempt to move passed the issues that are causing so much trouble? It may seem like a long shot, but getting to the root of your issues can make all the difference in the world. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has a ton of experience helping people who are going through the same issues that you are currently suffering from. And, he wants to show you that you no longer have to suffer in silence. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.
