Yes, research shows it’s possible! with actively choosing new ways to think, new ways to behave, and new environments that best suit your emotional style.   We can change how the brain responds to emotional stimuli with researched strategies that include:

    • Find out what your “hot buttons” are – what triggers your negative emotions.
    • Observe your emotions in the moment, without labeling good or bad.
    • Investigate emotions by asking yourself questions like, “Why do I feel this way?” or “What are my emotions trying to tell me?” Sometimes there is a logic and pattern of our emotions than we can learn from and improve.
    • Practice responding to emotions in new and constructive ways (for example, dancing, writing, or painting).

I work successfully with clients and groups to do this with Peak Performance Success and Life Coaching that may include stress and anger management, guided meditation and the modality EFT – Emotional Freedom Techniques, tapping – that speed up this process!

Mindfulness is about living in the moment and being fully aware of what is going on at all times.  When we “practice” this while mindfully meditating – following the breath and not allowing any thoughts in…letting them float by like clouds on a windy sky…then there is a “spillover effect” into everyday life: being able to be mindful while doing (almost) anything and having clearer focus, greater calm and enhanced creativity-productivity!

It’s easy to forget to live in the moment while keeping the big picture in sight.  It’s helpful to remember that life is transient;  many “unfortunate” or “worrisome”  things are temporary and that the only time that truly exists ever is right now. RIGHT NOW is the ONLY time you can do or change anything in your life. And NOW is the only time you have. There are few of us that live in the present, we are forever anticipating what is to come or remembering what has gone.

I’ve been trained in the practice of mindfulness by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and co-facilitated  MBSR groups with a local medical doctor.  Mindfulness is in the curriculum for Anger Management, and is highly effective in helping to create good choices in all areas of life and career.  Corporate and organizational seminars and classes onsite are available.

Yes, the phrase “disconnect to reconnect” has two distinct definitions and perhaps more…

Literally, it has to to with not beeing connected to devices or computer for a period of time daily – or for several days – weeks depending on your circumstances.

Another definition, recently pointed out to me by a coaching client, is to release all toxic people and past negativity-shame from your life to reconnect with your joyful, peaceful inner self-child and be mindful/present in each waking moment.

Wow! Maybe challenging yet definitely doable!!  Need help and an accountability partner to do this?                FREE PHONE CONSULT:  516 623 4353    www.balanceandpower.com

Do you like to “vent” your negative emotions?

Many people think that expressing anger is healthy-minded and relieves their feelings. Not often so. Studies show that expressing anger only aggravates it.  I’’ve found this to be true, for myself and for clients. Often anger (a natural emotion) can be ended by silence.  Many, when they “get going” can escalate rapidly  into a fury. It’s better to behave calmly and  communicate effectively when time passes.

A large section of  the “Anger Management” curriculum is MBSR: Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, which includes relaxation breathing, guided meditation and progressive muscle relaxation.  Discussing anger challenges with a professional and keeping a log of incidents and your reactions reveals patterns and triggers that can be reversed.  EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) helps too!
