Controlling Bad Habits, & Phobias
Annette Nay, Ph.D.
%sE@ DB`k`ҋPout for a while instead of letting them flash through over and over again to whip up emotion, they can be mentally reversed. Instead of allowing the image to end in crashing and burning, it could be imagined that there was burning; only it was not the plane.  Instead, the plane dipped near something that was burning, but the plane was alright and continued on, arriving perfectly as planned. Use your creativity. If you can image crashing and burning, you can image other scenarios also. The main thing is to get control of your thoughts, edit them, and make them harmless.
