17. 3 Tips to Overcome Negative Beliefs
Answering a question about Episode 15 and negative beliefs!   “Do you have tips/advice on how to protect ourselves from lingering in or launching back into this narrative?”   Here are three things you can do (explained in greater detail in the video):  1. Write down 3-5 things you are grateful for each day  2. Attach the word “yet” to the narrative.  3.
