Do you find yourself stressed more often than you would like to be?
Do you struggle with anxiety or depression?
Are you self-critical?
Would you like to:
- be more resilient in facing life’s challenges?
- deal more effectively with anxious thinking and difficult emotions?
- feel more at peace?
- feel more compassion towards yourself and others?
- rewire your brain towards balance and joy?
Life has plenty of ups and downs!
And, sometimes it feels like it is just plain uphill!
Although we all hope to stay upright during the difficult times most of us are bound to, at least occasionally, tip out of emotional balance – some for longer periods than others.
My clients often ask,
“How can it be that I can get so anxious, raging, or hopeless when I am typically not like that?” “It is almost like I am another person!”
People are often reassured to learn that “tipping” is part of being human.
We all tip! It doesn’t mean that you are weak or that there is something wrong with you.
How often and how far we tip is related to our temperament, past experiences, and our ability to stay connected with ourselves during those reactive moments. That connection helps us to bounce back.
This ability to bounce back is another way of talking about resiliency.
I like the idea of “bouncing” as it is playful. Part of resiliency is not taking ourselves too seriously and having some fun along the way.
