Reframing stress: Stage fright can be your friend | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it


Fear of public speaking tops death and spiders as the nation's number one phobia. But new research shows that learning to rethink the way we view our shaky hands, pounding heart, and sweaty palms can help people perform better both mentally and physically.

Mindfulness - Fad or Revolution?

Mindfulness - Fad or Revolution? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

"What is mindfulness, anyway? One definition from the 2005 book Mindfulness and Psychotherapy describes mindfulness as "(1) awareness, (2) of present experience, (3) with acceptance."

 

"While mindfulness will not solve all of our problems, it is a powerful tool with great potential to help us all transform our relationship with our problems when it is not possible, or desirable, to eliminate them."

Seems pretty simple right? Become aware of the present moment and accept it for what it is, as opposed to what you want it to be. The formula is simple, the execution not quite so simple.


The post encourages therapists and mental health practitioners to use the practice of mindfulness to become more compassionate, patient and to better handle the ongoing stress that comes with the job. Pretty good advice, don't you think?


Elana Miller concludes by writing."While mindfulness will not solve all of our problems, it is a powerful tool with great potential to help us all transform our relationship with our problems when it is not possible, or desirable, to eliminate them."

Very practical addition to the groundswell for mindfulness - it's about impulse control and emotional intelligence as well as spirituality.

A good reminder about the power of simplicity of mind and spirit. In our hectic day-to-day, paring down to the simple task of peaceful exercise of meditation, can prove to be the "reboot" that we can all benefit from.

Is Your Impatience Placed Strategically?

Is Your Impatience Placed Strategically? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Where do you focus your impatience? Is it focused on your important things in life? Our life needs the right balance to keep our pace and stride focused.

 

Dividing our patience and impatience between unimportant and important life and leadership activities delivers a better view for us to absorb.

 

Routine – There are unimportant activities we need to do. In terms of life direction, they are the functional things we need to do, and we do them with a patient everyday mindset.

 

Release – These are the frustration points that unexpectedly land in our path. We need to take a more mindful approach to resolved them, breathing in and letting the impatience flow from our thoughts and actions. We cannot let them trip us up and get us off track.

 

Pace – For some of our important activities, we get riled up. We need to remember to put one foot in front of another. It is about movement, not just motion. It is about consistency of work and effort to achieve our goals and purpose. Scurrying around tires us out; consistent action delivers better results.

 

Stride – Life is a balance. We cannot become too patient in achieving our life purpose, as life may just pass us by. For the important things in our life, we need to gain and maintain our stride.

Befriending Fear: Working with Worry and Anxiety | Mindful

Befriending Fear: Working with Worry and Anxiety | Mindful | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

"If you’re like most people, you might be surprised to see just how often  fear and anxiety affect your life. Some people think of these as distinct experiences. They use the word fear to describe our reaction to immediate physical danger (the car going into a skid or our child running into the road) while anxiety involves  worry (feeling nervous before an important talk or big test). The
distinction isn’t critical, however. Mindfulness practice helps us see that our minds and bodies respond similarly in all of these situations and at least some fear or anxiety shows up quite regularly. It can help us work with both the little moments of fear and anxiety that pass through our minds all the time and the big ones that can be overwhelming."
