This is the first in a 4-part series on women's empowerment in honour of International Women's Day on March 8.
In this episode, I talk about the number one contributor to female depression - rumination! Learn what it is, why it is so bad for your well-being and performance, and what you can do about it.
In the coming weeks, I will be announcing my latest online course to help you overcome your own ruminations once and for all!
Here are some tips on how you can reduce your own ruminations:
Understanding when you start to ruminate is the first step in overcoming this annoying habit. If you are able to identify that the thoughts you are thinking are not healthy and are temporary, you are more likely to be able to snap yourself out of it and move on.
Do Something That Makes You Happy
When you find yourself ruminating distract yourself with something that makes you happy; go for a walk, pet your dog or plan an adventure. This will help get those negative thoughts out of your head while focusing on the positive aspects in your life.
Unfortunately, every day won't be perfect and that's ok. Have self-compassion and find solace knowing that you are doing your best. Many people struggle with ruminating, know that you are not alone.
