Unlike most coaches, I not only support you in creating a 100% personalized approach to mindset, health, and habits… I also help you achieve sustainable results and beat the “I’ll start tomorrow” mentality for good!

As we are working towards our best health, business, or lifestyle habits, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed or stressed. Stressed about what to do next, the uncertainty that comes with trying something new, maintaining a balance in life, and much more.
So, I wanted to focus today’s podcast on my number 1 mindset shift to remain calm and conquer stress. We all know that in order to bring positive things to us, we need to remain in our best decision making state. A mental state that’s positive, focused, and open to growth and discomfort. When we are stressed, we are blocking ourselves from that optimal mental state.
Here’s what we really need to understand if we want to manifest our desires in a calm fashion: Intensity happens, but stress is chosen. This lesson comes from one of my favorite thought leaders Elizabeth Benton.
What does she mean by this? We can go through any difficult obstacle and face any fear without BEING stressed. We have the choice to let intense circumstances overwhelm us, or we can view them as stepping stones for growth. Intensity results from our circumstances, which we might not always have no control over. Stress is a result of your response to those circumstances. Stress is your perspective, and thankfully, you always have 100% control over that.
My challenge for you this week is to start paying more attention to the intense circumstances in your life & how you’re responding to them.
Like Elizabeth says, you can be under physical stress during a workout, but you don’t have to panic or freak out. You can be under emotional stress when dealing with a health crisis or family problem, but you can choose to remain peaceful and take great care of yourself, so that you have enough stamina to deal with the problem. You are very much in control of your own stress and distress levels.
We have the power to CHOOSE to remain light-hearted, compassionate with ourselves, and peaceful in our daily lives through any storm.
Now, I’d like you to join me in a brief guided meditation. Checkout the meditation here:
