Practical application

I particularly found the mindset and SCARF modules valuable. I could identify areas of interaction within our team where these principles have practical application.

✨ New Podcast Episode ✨In this episode we examine effective and practical ways to direct our attention in ways that help us cope and manage stress – not think about stress, and build resilience along the way. Dr Schwartz leads us through a simple and important breath awareness exercise which supports us to connect with our inner ‘Wise Advocate’ that helps us understand what’s happening, and calm our feelings and anxieties to enable us to make a plan going forward. Importantly, we explore effective and efficient ways to keep our executive brain ‘online’ to think clearly even through anxious times like these. He outlines his acclaimed 4 Steps process to manage stress and anxiety, re-centre ourselves for greater calm, perspective and resilience. This helps us balance and understand our priorities and make good decisions, and preserve our wellbeing and positive mental health. We discuss what resilience is, and practical ways to build resilience capability. Learn from a leading expert in the fields of neuroscience, mindfulness and psychiatry, and author of over 100 scientific publications. Dr Schwartz has been featured globally on prominent TV shows, including Oprah, 20/20, Today Show and Larry King. He was even a consultant to Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio on The Aviator (and appears with them on the bonus DVD extras of that film).Tune in, open your mind and heart, and be resourced and empowered.https://josiethomson.com/podcast-ep7/

THANKFUL THURSDAY One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is if you don’t speak your truth, your truth will speak through you.At first, staying silent to keep the peace sounds like a good idea. Right? Why speak our truth and deal with others’ negative reactions when we could stomach our own discomfort like champions? HmmmmThose of us who played the role of peacekeeper in our families of origin will find this approach familiar, maybe even comfortable.What I’ve learned is: if we want external peace, we need to cultivate inner peace. When we stay silent, the people around us might be blissfully ignorant, but we feel the repercussions emotionally, mentally and physically. You know what I’m talking about... debilitating anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, jaw tension, and stomach aches, for example, are common symptoms people report when they stifle their voice over an extended period of time.For me, I ended up with thyroid cancer in 1991 and then cranial surgery in 2010! I do not want dis-ease for you!This is what I recommend: recognise that speaking your truth isn’t some silly self-help mantra: it’s a necessary prescription for a psychologically and physically healthy life. Do it with radical candour. Speak up with truth and with kindness. Be bold. Be free. Jx
