Audio rational thinking exercise focused on improving self-esteem by having you visualize a train ride through your life and changing your self-talk regarding different events in your life. This exercise is best used when you have already completed reading about rational self-talk so that you know the basic methods of how to talk rationally to yourself. It doesn’t tell you what to say to yourself but guides you through exercises and opportunities to change self-talk.
This may be used while sitting or lying down in a quiet, comfortable place. Just close your eyes and listen without trying to force yourself to relax. If your mind wanders, gently bring yourself back to focus on the words.
This exercise is best the more fully relaxed you are. If you are unable to relax completely, listen to the relaxation exercises such as the meadow or mountain cabin until you are more skilled with relaxation.
