Worry time

Client ‘I’m going to limit my worrying to 2 hours at a time’

Me ‘How about less than that?’

Client ‘Umm, that’s already down from 3 days.’

Me ‘What other options are there?’

Client ‘Do you mean it is actually possible to worry for less time than that?’

Sometimes we are so caught up in our own heads we can’t see another option.

That is why coaching is so beneficial as you talk about things in a way you don’t tend to talk to anyone else and with awareness you can break the pattern.

The Positive Intelligence mental fitness programme I use alongside coaching is proven to create new neural pathways. We learn to use negative emotions as a helpful alert, and then quickly shift to the positive region of the brain that has the calm clarity, objectivity, and creativity to handle the challenge most effectively.

Feeling pain for a split second when your hand touches a hot stove is indeed useful, delivering an important alert. But keeping your hand on the hot stove, continuing to feel negative emotions can harm both performance and happiness.

You can read more about the programme here https://www.positiveintelligence.com/program/ The next 6 week cohort is starting on Monday 2 November. Registrations close on Thursday 29 October so contact me if you’d like to know more.
