Several psychological counselors utilize cognitive therapy; in other words, they help people become more aware of their thinking patterns.  Negative thoughts are identified and replaced with positive thoughts, and a person gains a more encouraging outlook on life and the world. Praying the rosary and rosary meditation promote positive thinking and helps our minds become more united with God.  With regular rosary prayer, a person will experience significant improvement in their overall mental health.  Typical mental health benefits of praying the rosary include:
