Automatic Negative Thoughts (ANTs)

What thoughts do you have that limit your ability to enjoy life?

Have you ever caught yourself saying things like:

  • “I’m such a failure…”
  • “No one likes me…”
  • “I always mess things up…”

Daniel Amen, M.D., proposes that how we think from moment to moment has a huge impact on how we feel and behave. Our negative thoughts often create difficult behaviors and cause us to have problems with our self-esteem.

Dr. Amen refers to these types of thoughts as ANTs (Automatic Negative Thoughts) and that is the topic of the next FREE Making Time for Success call on Friday, March 22 at 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. (Pacific Time).

We’ll explore nine types of ANTs and look at how Dr. Amen suggests we can get rid of the ANTs in our lives.

You can learn more about ANTs in Dr. Amen’s book, Healing ADD, The Breakthough Program That Allows You to See and Heal the 6 Types of ADD. You don’t have to be diagnosed with ADD/ADHD to benefit by reading Chapter 24 which is all about ANTs.
