Right after my husband and I married, we rented an apartment from a landlord who insisted we never run appliances when we weren't home. At the time, we thought it was a little overkill but come to find out appliances--especially clothes dryers--are common causes of house fires. Our landlord had the right idea. Never leave the dryer, washing machine or dishwasher running unattended. Turn them off when you leave the house to run errands or when you are going to bed. Here are some other ways you can prevent appliance-related house fires: Three prong cords need to be fitted into three prong outlets. Never force a three prong cord into a two prong extension cord. How would you treat others differently: your friends, relatives, partner, parents, children and work colleagues? How would you treat yourself differently? How would you treat your body? How would you talk to yourself? How would your character change? What sort of things would you start doing? What would you stop doing? What goals would you set and work towards? What difference would your new-found confidence make in your closest relationships, and how would you behave differently around those people? What difference would your new-found confidence help you to make in the world? What am I definitely NOT thinking? What does the situation mean to me?

Am I making a prediction? Or remembering something? REMEMBER: JUST BECAUSE I THINK SOMETHING DOESN'T NECESSARILY MEAN IT'S TRUE. Questions to Identify Automatic Thoughts handout.

If you still have trouble figuring out what's going through your mind, this handout might help. Environmental hazards and unconducive working conditions can cause severe tension as well. Insufficient lighting, high noise levels, bad air circulation, extreme room temperatures, insufficient workspace, and other ergonomic factors can have a negative effect on people's health and their ability to focus. For example, many employees find it extremely stressful to work in a loud, noisy environment. They struggle to concentrate, suffer headaches, and run the risk of developing hearing problems. Trauma is at the center of careers that involve practicing medical, first response, law enforcement, and combat. People who put their lives at risk for the sake of others generally deal with unthinkable and traumatic situations. They expose themselves to shocking circumstances, such as deadly diseases, fatal injuries, violence, bloodshed, and death. People that work in these conditions are commonly overstressed and many develop depression and anxiety issues, such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Workload and Performance Pressure Workload and excessive demands are cause for many emotional breakdowns in the workplace. Register your new appliances with the manufacturer so you can be kept up-to-date on safety recalls. Clean the dryer's lint trap after every load.

Use an air canister or vacuum to clean your bathroom exhaust fan. A build up of lint can cause the motor to overheat and start a fire. Don't leave your bathroom exhaust fan running longer than necessary or worse, running all day. The fans are designed to run for short periods of time, like during your shower. On average, candles are responsible for 42 house fires each day in the United States. As mentioned previously in the article on power outages, most candle related fires are preventable if you use common sense. Keep candles away from kids and pets. Don't put them near anything that might catch fire. Please take some time to reflect on these questions before reading on. Get clear about the purpose underlying your quest for more confidence. Your answers to these questions are vitally important; And because so many people are unclear about the difference between values and goals, let's take a few moments to quickly explore it. VALUES AND GOALS Values are desired qualities of ongoing action'. <a href=''>In</a> other words, your values describe how you want to behave as a human being: how you want to act on an ongoing basis; <a href=''>For</a> example, common values in intimate relationships include trust, honesty, openness, integrity, equality, respect, and being loving, caring, supportive and assertive. <a href=''>These</a> are all qualities of action, ways of behaving throughout your life. <a href=''>Values</a> can never be completed or ticked off the list asdone'; Automatic thoughts coexist with a more manifest stream of thoughts, arise spontaneously, and are not based on reflection or deliberation. People are usually more aware of their associated emotion or behavior.

With a little training, though, they can become aware of what's going through their minds. Automatic thoughts are associated with specific emotions, depending on their content and meaning. They are often brief and fleeting and may occur in verbal and/or imaginal form. People usually accept their automatic thoughts as true, without reflection or evaluation. Identifying, evaluating, and responding to automatic thoughts (in a more adaptive way) usually produces an adaptive shift in affect and/or behavior. The next article clarifies the difference between automatic thoughts and emotions. REFLECTION QUESTIONS What are some ways you can help clients identify their automatic thoughts? Some employers expect too much of their employees, and the stress that develops from being overworked and underpaid is physically and mentally damaging. Being expected to uphold work performance standards over a long period of time can be a real tall order, too. People get tired, they lose their spark, and they struggle to give 100% all day, every day, week in and week out. The expectation to perform at your best at all times and meet your heavy workload can lead to you feeling run down, stressed, unhappy, and even hopeless. Work Burnout Burnout is the most common stress condition in the world, and it's no wonder. Society becomes more competitive and success-driven every day, and the pressure of being the best can get so intense that people are willing to work themselves into a frenzy for the sake of excellence. Of course, it's good to want to succeed but if it means that you need to go overboard, risk your health, and burn yourself out in the process, then you are certainly playing with fire. Burnout leads to mental and emotional exhaustion and a loss of all hope and motivation. It makes you physically vulnerable and can lead to depression and other illnesses if it's not dealt with immediately. And if you leave the room, blow them out. Here are some other suggestions for safe candle use:

Use a candleholder every time. Place it on a stable, heat-resistant surface in an area where it won't be knocked over. Always trim the wick to 1/4 inch in length before you light it. Doing so prevents uneven burning, dripping and flaring. Don't use candles in your bedroom. Thirty five percent of all candle-related fires start where you sleep. Every year more than 40,000 house fires are started by children. Preschoolers and kindergarteners are responsible for starting more than half of them. If you value being loving in your relationship, there never comes a time when being loving is completed. Goals are `desired outcomes'. In other words, goals are what you want to get, complete, possess or achieve. Goals are not ongoing. The moment you achieve a goal, you can tick it off the list; So suppose you want to have a great job: that's a goal. The moment you get that job, goal achieved. But suppose you want to be effective, efficient and productive; Those are values, not goals; And notice you can live by these values even if you never get that great job. How can you prevent clients from being self-critical if they have difficulty? PRACTICE EXERCISE
