Probably some thinking about ourselves is necessary for our whole health. Thinking about practical things gets me out doing them, and taking care of myself, but I have to be in the right mood; creating that mood is the part where thinking in psychological terms is hugely helpful. But I can only train myself to think in psych terms but actually thinking in those terms for a long time, to begin with. But I think it's like learning a language. Really. You start off having to work really hard, and it seems so unfathomable in the beginning, but the more you talk the language the more second-nature it becomes, until suddenly you find yourself listening and understanding.. then talking and not having to think about it, pronouncing the words correctly, suddenly, it's not so much work anymore, and the more you talk, the less you have to think about how to put the words together.
