We are often asked lots of questions about our TUFMINDS programs and the work we do.  Here are some answers to the most common questions.

Positive Mindfulness Cognition - Understanding the Power of Thoughts

Positive Mindfulness Cognition (PMC) is the process of turning negative thoughts, words or actions into positive, productive attitudes and behaviours that empowers your life.

Mastering Negative Impulsive Thoughts (NITs)

Start listening to your own thoughts and see if they are positive and encouraging or negative and discouraging. Practice watching these thoughts so you can see, hear of feel them whenever they come to the surface. This is important because recognising them is the first step to their elimination.

Creating a Powerful Mindset

We have developed a 3 Step process to recognise your Negative Impulsive Thoughts (NITs)  and replace them with Positive Alternative Thoughts (PATs).

Communication Strategies when under NITs Attack

Successful resolution of difficult situations requires great communication skills. The aim is to use positive and constructive communication that leads to problem solving with all parties maintaining integrity, respect and teamwork.

Seeking help if you are affected.
