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!

As a normal part of life, stress enables us to get things done. If left unmanaged, stress can lead to emotional, psychological, and even physical problems. Stress causes a disruption in the flow of vital energy through the body. These energetic imbalances can throw off the immune system or cause symptoms of pain, sleep disturbances, abnormal digestion, headaches, menstrual irregularities, aggravation of already troublesome health conditions and, over time, more serious illnesses can develop.

Stress is cumulative.  Stressful situations that last over a long period of time can create an ongoing low-level stress that puts continual pressure on the nervous system, increasing activity, and can cause the overproduction of hormones. The extra stress hormones over an extended period of time may wear out the body’s reserves, lead to fatigue, depression, a weakened immune system, and a host of serious physical and psychological ailments.

Some signs of stress overload include:

– anxiety or panic attacks
– feelings of constant pressure, hassled and hurried
– irritability and moodiness
– physical symptoms such as stomach problems, headaches, or even chest pain
– allergic reactions, such as eczema or asthma
– problems sleeping
– overindulgence in food, alcohol, smoking, or drugs
– sadness or depression

Stress is often the cause of illness and the deterioration of health. Finding a release valve for your stress can help you stay healthy. According to research, stress, frustration, and unresolved anger can play an important part in throwing the immune system off and allowing pathogens to affect the body.

Research has shown that EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), meditation and relaxation techniques can reduce stress levels. My private sessions and workshops/trainings integrate these modalities with Peak Performance Success Coaching for your life and career.

While it isn’t always possible to remove the external forces causing stress, the ability to effectively deal with stress is a choice. Take time for yourself to cultivate the energy you need to handle your stress more skillfully and effectively.

If you or someone you know is experiencing high stress or a stress related disorder, you may contact me for more information about how the modalities mentioned in the previous paragraph can help you regain peace of mind and stay healthy.  Schedule an appointment today!   FREE CONSULT:      516 623 4353         balanceandpower

You already know the value of coaching, if you stop to think about it. You’ve seen coaches huddle on the sideline with their players, right? An athlete rarely succeeds without the strategy and encouragement a great coach offers, or the accountability a coach demands.

Wondering whether you’d like to have a coach in your corner? Here are 10 critical things a coach can do for you.

  1. Assess and Take Stock: Coaches ask what’s next for you in key areas of life, like work, relationships and well-being. They’re looking for areas where you’re in action and your strengths shine. Coaches listen for gaps between where you are and where you want to be. A coach can help align your goals, values, desired impact and purpose.
  2. Focus:By shining a spotlight on the future, a coach helps you clarify a vision. Your coach will work with you to articulate your goals, then plan and gather resources. Your coach will bring you back to the original focus when you stray (everyone does!).
  3. Motivate:We all get distracted, drifting away from even the best of plans. Your coach will help you tap into your deep reservoirs of motivation, often by reminding you of your long-range vision. Your coach will affirm and champion you. Your coach will nudge you to reflect, connect, explore, choose, repack and act.
  4. Optimize:At the heart of coaching is this question: What would it take to be your best in all dimensions of your life? A coach works alongside you to ensure that your performance matches your potential and is driven by your purpose. Your purpose is your GPS. Everyone is an experiment of one…growing, learning and making choices.
  5. Encourage:There are moments when it’s tempting to quit, and that’s when your coach becomes your best support. Your coach can serve as part of your sounding board and a haven of emotional safety.6
  6. Shift Perspective: Coaches are trained to be powerful listeners, ferretting out blind spots, pointing out alternative perspectives, and freeing you to see things in a different way. By reframing your view of a struggle, a question like, “In five years, how will you view this situation?” can lead to insight, motivation and action.
  7. Probe:One of a coach’s most effective tools is a powerful question: “What do you want?” “How is that connected to your purpose?” A provocative question can startle you, lead to insight and cause you to rethink a habit. A coach will challenge you to ask and answer difficult questions without analyzing intentions or probing into your past.
  8. Build Structure: A coach provides the environment for you to translate your desires into action—nonjudgmental listening and supportive accountability. If you know your coach is going to ask you whether you’ve accomplished the objectives you outlined in a previous session, you’re very likely to come to the session prepared.
  9. Clear Hurdles: What if you don’t accomplish what you’ve committed to? Your coach can help you recognize why you’re not following through and craft a plan for eliminating barriers to your goal.
  10. Celebrate:In the busy whirl of our lives, time with a coach can create a pause when you recognize what you’ve accomplished. When was the last time you gave yourself time for reflection and celebration? When have you recognized your own growth and learning? It’s important to create time to integrate new behaviors and make them daily habits.

Imagine huddling with your coach to reflect, build a structure for exploring, and create connections that propel you to act. Go ahead. Set up a session with a coach to move toward what you want to create in your life.

Empowerment is about making conscious choices which will be most likely to bring you success and fulfillment. It’s about thinking ahead and preventing the problems in life that are preventable and dealing rationally and effectively with the ones you can’t prevent. There is little in life that you can control but you can make informed choices about everything.

Being fully grounded in reality  is necessary for feeling confident and empowered, as opposed to living in hopeful fantasy.  When the  truths  are difficult to face, use your inner knowledge/intuition    to deal with life’s challenges in the most realistic  manner possible.

Empowerment is the ability to pursue your goals without being inhibited by any internal or external forces. It’s being confident instead of  self-doubting; motivated    and inspired .  It’s not allowing any person or negative inner voice to get in the way of your “going for it.”

Empowerment is about being assertive.  Aggression can come close, and that’s certainly not it.  Empowerment is the “power to” do things, not the  “power over” things.  Be persistent and  follow through with problems.
