Watch Flip Negativity

Flip Negativity

Chances are you’ve seen the unfortunate impact of negativity in your personal life, especially when dealing with a disease like myositis as the person affected or the care partner.  We all fall into some unconstructive patterns from time-to-time.  But when these become persistent, they can deteriorate the positive lifestyle you are trying to build.

In this session, Janet shares practical techniques on how to flip negativity and tame irrational thinking patterns.  She also touches on how to reframe our attitude about the negative people in our lives.  Finally, we look at how to combat fixed mindsets and turn them into growth mindsets.
