Dr. David Burns: Depression

Dr. David Burns,”Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy,” says depression can be overcome without medication. He calls it cognitive therapy which is a commitment to change thoughts.

Have you ever been in a bad mood and played music that made you happy? It's as easy as this. However, our thoughts are habitual so making a commitment to replacing them, over a period of time, changes neural passageways permanently.

Understanding switchwords

Using switchwords, in this regard, is a super-charged way of changing thought patterns. This is because switchwords are strong words the subconscious understands. The use of switchwords was discovered by James Mangan and others have contributed to their understanding since then.

So, by replacing habitual thoughts with switchwords, we are actually communicating with the subconscious. Eventually, the subconscious replaces negative thoughts by building new neural pathways.
