Positive Highs/ Negative Lows

Positive Highs/ Negative Lows. How to do it:

(See worksheet)

1. Moods

List two examples of when you last felt high and low.

  1. Behaviours.

Describe how you react when you feel this way, how you respond and how you are.

  1. Thoughts.

Write down what you were thinking at these times

  1. Changing the behaviours

Once you have identified these areas, you become aware of what you are like or what you do when you are low and how different you are when you are happier. It’s a simple technique – make yourself do what you would do if you were happier even when you don’t feel like doing it. For example seeing your friend may be something you do when you feel happy. So, when you feel sad, make yourself go out and see that friend, even if you don’t feel like it. Changing your behaviour can change the way you feel and think.
