Six Rules For Rational Thinking

I consider myself a rational human.

But that doesn’t mean that all my thoughts are always 100% rational and logical.

Please watch this video for a short introduction to Albert Ellis’ ABC model and David Goodman’s Six Rules for Rational Thinking.

What the fork?!

Some 2000 years ago, Epictetus came up with the concept of the stoic fork.

The aim: to help others get clear on the areas of their life that they can control and – importantly – which they can’t.

I invite you to watch this short video and then consider how applying the lessons of the stoic fork can help reduce your levels of stress as you adopt a more stoic attitude to your current challenges.
