"⁣☀Cognitive Flexibility⠀

Broadly defined, “cognitive flexibility” describes the capacity to switch between thinking about two different ideas or to think about multiple ideas simultaneously.⠀

As humans we are creatures of habit so it’s natural for us to become accustomed to certain patterns of behavior and thoughts. However, it’s important that we remain mindful of ways that we might become cognitively “rigid” so that we don’t inadvertently limit ourselves. ⠀

💭 When was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone, met someone seemingly “different” than you, or tried to consider multiple perspectives? How can you mentally “stretch” yourself today for self-growth?"

It's National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and we've been looking at local data to give us a snapshot of how our young people are doing on the Mid Shore. Here's what we understand about how students in Dorchester County are doing:

- Of the 806 high school students who particpated in the 2018-2019 school year survey, approximately 21%/172 had seriously considered attempting suicide in the last year.

- Female students considered attempting suicide at a higher rate than male students.

- While the overall number of students who identify as LGBTQIA+ is much smaller than those who identify as straight, LGTBTQIA+ youth seriously consider attempting suicide at more than 3x the rate of their straight counterparts.

There are caring professionals out there who are ready to help. You can also prepare for real conversations about mental health and what to do if someone mentions that they're considering suicide (links and resources in comments).

********************************************************************
If you are or care for a young person who needs support, Crossroads can help. Call us at 443-988-2041 to find out more.

Have you heard of the wise mind? Repost from Mental.Healthness

******************

Whether it’s something small, like choosing to press snooze on your alarm one more time, or something big, like deciding to move across the country, you are under-going a cognitive process of selecting amongst other alternative choices, and mentally filtering through the cost and benefits of each of your options. Your emotions, reasoning, biases, and memories all influence the process in one way or another, and assists you with forming your final decision.

“Wise mind” is a DBT tool that is used to assist with those who tend to experience problems with emotion regulation or emotional suffering. People tend to flip flop between the two extreme states of minds - emotion mind and logical mind - which can lead to a lot of poor decision making and emotional suffering. Emotions tell us to act, and when people experience more intense emotions, they tend to be more prone to the emotional mind when decision making. This is where we see impulsiveness, reactive and quick behaviors, without much thought about the consequences. What tends to come out of it are big mistakes, regret, and further worsening the situation. On the opposite end, there are people who shut off their emotions, almost as if operating like a robot. When this happens, what tends to happen is people do what logically is right, despite the emotional pain it may bring them or others.

We all experience these states of minds to varying extents, and that’s okay. Learning how to identify what ways you use emotional reasoning, logical reasoning, and intuitive reasoning can help you to better understand your urges, impulses, and problems, and where these come from in terms of decision making. When you have stronger awareness of what state of mind is informing your thoughts and actions, you can then make better decisions that uses logical reasoning in a way that is also considerate of emotions. The more wise mind reflection, the more likely you are to do what works best, while also reducing overall emotional suffering.
