Effect on Emotions

  • I recently heard this – Losing your patience is weakness. I never really thought of this, but it really resonated.
  • Losing control of my emotions is weakness, so you really have to force yourself to be present in order to control those emotions. That's being mindful, and mindfulness comes from meditation, journaling, coaching.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • I have a breathing technique that I use. I learned this from Dr. Rob Gilbert of the Success Hotline. (Note: You can still call the Success Hotline at (973) 743-4690, but now, you can subscribe to this new podcast, and get his daily messages right to your device.
  • This is a quick reset. Take a deep breath. Count down, 5,4,3,2,1. On the 5 count you relax from the knees down. 4 is upper legs, 3 is torso, 2 is arms, 1 is head up (head and neck).

Bullying Story

  • I was in sixth grade and I got bullied. I was a wrestler and I didn't know my own capabilities and strengths. I had an overwhelming self-doubt and lack of confidence.
  • If I had known there was a councillor or therapist, people who could help me step back and evaluate what was happening, evaluate my thoughts, understand the language I could use against bullies, that would have been tremendously helpful. Going to therapy is a productive pause. It's not just showing up and going to school.
