THIS IS WHY YOU OVERREACT…

So I’m getting ready to create the next Break Free Mastermind training and the lesson is about stress and overwhelm.

As a Certified Happiness Life Coach, I’ve learned a thing or two about the brain, habits and wires that are created from experiences and how to change pathways.

Overreacting is your body’s response to the things going on in your life or in your mind that you feel are stressful. We have wires that connect to stress. Experiences connect us to joy or stress wires. The more stress you have, different things build on each other and it creates chronic stress effect.

  • Noise
  • Chemicals
  • Food
  • People
  • Job
  • School
  • Things

Stress builds up. The more stress we have in our lives, the closer we get to the edge of our emotional cliff. One small thing happens – huge reaction (close to cliff). Find a way to reduce the stress. Stress is caused because of patterns and wires in our brain that connect to experiences in our life to feeling bad. Rewire stress to bring more joy.


3 ways to experience joy, have less stress and to literally rewire your brain


1. Stress Avoidance:

  • Negative coping strategies: substance abuse, love/sex/shopping addiction, ocd social media checks – we avoid things we should be doing and this causes more stress.
  • Positive: people, actions, behaviors, things, places that stress me out. I’m aware of them and plan my life accordingly to not come in contact with those things and avoid those things, I reduce stress. #boundaries #people #situations
  • Consciously choose a way to give yourself a productive break: do something you love, go for a walk, monitor your own thoughts, you have the power to choose.


2. Give yourself a joy boost:

  • Creating more pathways of joy, if you keep using these, your brain creates a sheath around it and it gets strong. More experiences of joy – you’ll create very strong connections of joy.
  • Stress starts to weaken.

Pay attention to your breath + hold your body at one – stand up straight, head up, shoulders back, hands open, smiling (mountain pose) tells your brain you’re supposed to feel good+ think about something that brings pleasure to you: thinking about something you love like walking through a field of flowers

Create 5 of your own joy boosts.


3. Retrain the pathway.

Choose something that triggers a bad memory. Imagine the thing. Allow it to bring up the negative association. Pick something that you’re going to replace it with, must be something that’s going to bring you joy.

HERE’S HOW:

Imagine the trigger —> switch to think about the joyful thing —> do it 10 times every day for several days —> you’re associating this bad memory with the joyful thing

There you have it, the quickest way to stop overreacting, plus it doesn’t cost a thing, just your mindfulness.

If you’re ready to reduce the overwhelm, break free of emotional roadblocks and start living your most desired life, apply here.

I USED TO EQUATE WORTH WITH WEIGHT

I know exactly when it started…

I was in 6th grade when my worth was stripped away. It was the first time someone made me feel bad about how much I weighed. Before that point I didn’t know that the scale dictated how I was supposed to feel about myself.

From that point on until my twenties, I battled HARD with confidence and weight.

I weighed myself before and after hot yoga.

I counted calories.

I skipped meals until I was so hungry that I binged.

I remember my daily intake…

1 venti chai tea
half peanut butter power bar

bike at level 10 for 40 minutes

lunch: other half power bar

post bikram yoga: spinach salad with veggie patty

and that was it…

my pants fell off.

my skin was bad.

I was finally skinny, but miserable.

I “arrived” and was the same person.

but that all changed when I stopped dieting. Funny, isn’t it?

The moment I realized that people would still want me around if I was 5 pounds up, some boyfriends even preferred me with more meat on my bones, it was like a breath of fresh air.

I was knocked down a few more times by insecure men, didn’t know it then, but years of reflection gave me that level of knowing.

I turned it all around and I’m teaching you how in the 6 Month Break Free Mastermind.

You have so many gifts and unique talents that have nothing to do with what you look like, the title you hold or how much money you make.

You are worth more than you can possibly imagine.

I’m the mentor that shows you gifts you’ve kept hidden for decades without even realizing it.

I’ll show you how I went from 0 clients to a waitlist.

How I’ve maintained a 25 pound weight loss for 7 years.

How I continually hit 5 figure months.

I’m laying out all the cards because that’s my purpose.

I want success and freedom for you and I know how you can have it.
