Lesson 139: Learn To Reframe
Reframing is something we should do. Cognitive reframing is a psychological technique that consists of identifying and then changing the way situations, experiences, events, ideas, and/or emotions are viewed. The purpose of reframing is to help a person experience their actions, the impact of their beliefs, etc. from a different perspective (frame) and potentially be more resourceful or have more choice in how they react. I like to think of the frame in filmmaking where we see what’s inside the frame but we can zoom in or out to less or more as needed. That’s how we should approach events, we can reframe things to have a positive outlook.
PROMPT: What was the last thing you had to reframe? What was the previous frame?
