Jon Kabat-Zinn: “Full Catastrophe Living”: Toxic Thoughts

“To summarize, all the studies we have discussed and many others support the notion that our physical health is intimately connected with our patterns of thinking and feeling about ourselves and also with the quality of our relationships with other people and the world. The evidence suggests that certain patterns of thinking and certain ways of relating to our feelings can predispose us to illness. Thoughts and beliefs that foster hopeless and helpless feelings, a sense of loss of control, hostility and cynicism towards others, a lack of commitment to meet life’s challenges, an inability to express one’s feelings, and social isolation all appear to be particularly toxic.”
