Neurolove’s Motivation Tips

Jan 18th at 7AM / via: psych-facts / op: psych-facts / 6,424 notes

psych-facts:

Sometimes, you may feel unmotivated because you lack a sense of direction, feel discouraged or un-passionate . At times like these, you may want to consult these tips. 

1. The first step is to figure out what is it that you want or truly want. Where does your mind wander off to when you’re doing something. For example, when you’re at school, what are you thinking instead of studying? When you’re working, are you satisfied? If not, what is it that you picture yourself doing instead? If you had a old passion, what was it and why are you not continuing it? 

2. After you figure out what you want, set goals. Ask yourself what you want to do with your passion and what point of it do you want to reach. For example, if it’s an academic goal, you may set goals to do well on your undergraduate studies so you can become a psychologist. If it’s a sport, you may set goals to play better. Once you know what you want, you have to know how far you want to go. 

3. Set a plan. Once you know what you want and where you want to go, you need to set up plans to get there. For example, if you want to become a psychologist, you know that to become a psychologist, you need a PhD in psychology and you know the steps needed. You need to do well in your undergraduate studies and you need to have a lot of related experiences. So figure out the obstacles and take the steps to get there, but also break the steps down into smaller parts.

12 Types and Examples of Distorted Thinking

Jan 18th at 6AM / via: psych-facts / op: psych-facts / 25,820 notes

psych-facts:

Mind Reading - Unlike having a healthy theory of mind, mind reading is when you make assumptions about what somebody is thinking or feeling despite contrary or lack of supporting evidence. In actuality, you’re possibly delusional or paranoid.

Catastrophize - when you over think a problem and the effects that they will actually have on you. For example, when you think that losing a relationship means the end of your life when really you can find someone new the next day or down the line. 

Filtering - when you only pay attention to one side of things. For example, you only remember the bad times you had in school and not the good ones. 

Polarized thinking - when you think of things as either black or white or good or bad. For example, there can only be good or bad people or success or fails.

Personalization - when you take everything too personally. For example, when you think that everything people do or say is some kind of reaction to you. 

Blaming - when you hold other people accountable for your problems. For example, you blame someone else  for causing you to make a bad decision. In actuality, you were the one who made the wrong call based on your own judgement.

"If you’re going to fall in love with me, it’s only fair that you know what you’re falling in love with. You are falling in love with my immaturity, my constant need to feel loved and appreciated, my overactive tear ducts, my internet obsession, my tendency to be a little too clingy. You fall in love with my troubled past, and my hopes and dreams, and how I’m a hopeless romantic at heart. If you fall in love with me, you fall in love with all my imperfections and my perception that nobody could ever love me. But, you are also falling in love with the way my eyes will smile when I’m with you, the way I’ll text you in the mornings just trying to get you to wake up. You’re falling in love with the occasional humorous and thought-provoking things I say, and the way I blush when people ask me about you. But to me, the most important thing will be that you are falling in love with me."
