ASK YOURSELF THIS - ARE YOU TEMPTED TO 'STOP IN YOUR TRACKS' WHEN STRESSED OR ANXIOUS?
The Concept of Primary and Secondary Thinking is where we simply go 'back' into thoughts unnecessarily
More importantly, it takes more 'effort' to do it as it's a forced 'head-talking' process of doing 'too much'.
Yes, recovery can very much be a trial and error process, but as you get better at understanding the mind's processes, you will steadily start to notice when you are tempted to force into that secondary stopping/analysis.
''don't force yourself to stop your thinking''
If you sense the temptation to 'do' this it will then actually take more effort to action it.
'Not' doing this will enable you to get 'through' the stressful sense of feeling threatened and flow on with your thinking.
