ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: #SmashYourCeiling, change starts from within – Business & Lifestyle Experimentation for #TheWomanAlchemist – Negative into positive
Hello again, and Happy Monday.
On Friday we talked about building healthy habits to deal with stress better and build resilience. Building habits like:
- Sleep to recharge and restore our brain and body
- Moving or exercising for 30 minutes a day to trigger feel-good endorphins and maintain a positive outlook.
- Meditation to shrink the brain region associated with emotional processes, reducing stress, anxiety and even changing electrical activity in the brain.
- And eating P-R-O-P-E-R-L-Y to fuel the brain and the body.
One other important thing, though, to build resilience is your self-talk. Yes, THAT’S RIGHT.
Learning to reframe negative self-talk is one technique that can help set you on the right positive path.
