041: Creativity and Cognitive Distortions

Sometimes the thoughts running through our heads aren’t serving us in the way they should be.

In this episode, I’m breaking down the 10 cognitive distortions from David D. Burns’ book, Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy. I chat about identifying what thoughts are true, what thoughts you like, what thoughts are serving you and which ones might not be based on reality.

You’ll also hear me relate these back to creativity and your experience as a creative to help you better understand these distortions as they come up. 


What you’ll find in this episode:

  • A segment on what I’m currently creating
  • The 10 cognitive distortions
