Be Active to Better Your Mental Health

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy model that is known for getting people to change their thoughts in order to affect their feelings, freeing them up to reengage in the activities they used to enjoy. Research shows that the reverse is also true. Reengaging in these life activities can also positively impact our emotions. This means that changing our thoughts is important over the long term, but there are other things we can do to see immediate results.

Unintended Consequences

Sometimes solutions can create new problems. I recently read that, after the Titanic sank in 1912 and cost the lives of over 1500 people, steps were taken to increase the safety of ships. The number of lifeboats required was increased dramatically. But sadly, as Edward Tenner suggests, the increase in lifeboats on the S.S.Eastland in 1915 made that ship more top-heavy contributing to it’s sinking a few weeks later in Chicago. Over 840 people perished as a result.
