It is important to identify if your thoughts, beliefs, and their resultant feelings are healthy or unhealthy. Dr. Janet Hranicky, Ph.D. of Los Angeles, California developed a series of questions to reflect on and help determine if your thoughts are helping or hindering you…

(1)Are your thoughts based on fact?


(2)Do your thoughts/beliefs help to protect your life and health?


(3)Do your thoughts/beliefs help you reach your short and long term goals?


(4)Do your thoughts/beliefs help you avoid your most undesirable conflicts?


(5)Do your thoughts/beliefs make you feel the way you want to feel?

“If your answer is “No” to any three of these questions, the beliefs or thoughts is considered unhealthy and needs to be changed,” says Dr. Hranicky. (Mind/Body Medicine)
