Cognitive reappraisal is a set of methods for controlling disruptive self-talk, which can lead to improved:
• Mental health
• Life satisfaction
• Heart function

When things feel bad, a part of this results from unhelpful persistent self-talk, which psychologists call ‘rumination’. This can undermine clear thinking and lead us to push away the people who might help us. In Emotional Intelligence terms, this constant unhelpful chatter focuses our attention more and more on the problem. In so doing, it closes off our attention from fixing that problem.

In his book, Chatter: The Voice in Our Head and How to Harness It (https://geni.us/JCqNBpl), Ethan Kross describes this problem and suggests solutions. Here are six that are easy to apply.

1. Zoom out
2. Distanced Self-talk
3. Reframe physiological responses
4. Revert to familiar rituals
5. Create an orderly environment
6. The power of nature

If you suffer from rumination, or chatter:
1. Select one of the six strategies and apply it deliberately for the next two weeks. At the end of this, evaluate what you have learned (3 MC CPD Points)
2. Then, repeat Exercise 1 (3 MC CPD Points)
3. Work through all the strategies to find which combination works best for you (3 MC CPD Points)
