Emotional reasoning is a classic cognitive disorder and a cause of many mental problems, and Dr. Hannah England explains that the basic reason of emotional reasoning is that we do not reason based on facts, but on emotions. She gives three steps to reduce emotional reasoning.

  1. Practice validity testing.
  2. Write in a journal.
  3. Discuss your emotions.

For example, I have recently found that when I train, I often have negative emotions because I don't perform as well as I expected, and this negative emotion affects my training afterwards. This vicious cycle makes me not enjoy training as much. I would often complain to my coaches about my negative feelings, and the advice I received from them included: reduce the intensity and focus on quality, and don't compare yourself to others, compare yourself to yourself.

At the same time looking through my training records I can still see my growth, such as learning more early movements and being able to lift more weight.

Another thing is to find a partner of a similar level to train with, so that I don't get dragged down by a partner who is too strong and at the same time push myself to improve better.

情绪化推理是一种典型的认知障碍,也是很多心理问题的诱因。Dr. Hannah England 介绍道,情绪化推理的基本表象就是我们不根据事实做出推理,而是基于情绪做出推理。她给出了三个减少情绪化推理的步骤:

  1. 练习客观性测试;
  2. 写日记记录自己的情绪;
  3. 和信任的朋友讨论你的情绪。

比如我近来发现自己在训练时,经常会因为自己表现不如意而产生负面情绪,而这种负面情绪又会影响我之后的训练。这样的恶性循环让我不再那么享受训练。我经常会和教练抱怨自己的负面情绪,他们给我的建议一般就两条:降低强度而注重质量,不要和别人比,和自己比。

同时翻看自己的训练记录,我还是能看到自己的成长,比如学会了更多的提早动作,可以举起更大的重量。

再者就是找到水平差不多的同伴一起训练,这样可以不会被太强的同伴拖死,同时也能推动自己更好地进步。
