Ep 69: Thinking Traps

Are you an educator looking for ways to help you and your students break free from unhelpful thinking patterns?

In this episode of The School of Wellbeing, I chat with Ben Scholl and David Berlinski co-founders of Toolbox Education to discuss the concept of “thinking traps” and how they can impact our lives.

Ben and David provide valuable insights on common thinking traps that can keep us stuck and strategies for challenging and redirecting unhelpful thinking.

This episode is a must-listen for educators seeking to support their students in developing healthier thinking patterns and relationships.

You might even discover some valuable insights for yourself while listening!

In this conversation we discuss

▫️ The common thinking traps that keep us stuck.

▫️ How thinking traps they influence our behaviour.

▫️ How to challenge and redirect our unhelpful thinking.

▫️ And so much more…

You can quote us on that…

“Is what I’m thinking about actually helping me?”

David Berlinski

“Sometimes we have thoughts that are just so familiar that we don’t even notice them.”

Ben Scholl

“The more we practice noticing and labeling our thoughts, the more space we create between us and our thoughts.”

David Berlinski
