Should you try to get rid of your negative thoughts?

It’s a question I get asked a lot when I'm teaching retreats and courses, so I wanted to explore the idea of thought suppression more closely. When we try to get rid of negative thoughts, many of us will naturally try to suppress them. But you may have realised by now that this rarely works.

In this episode of Mentally Stronger, I explain what the research says about thought suppression and explore some alternative strategies to help you gain more control over your thoughts.
