Behaving Bravely: Tools for Making Important Life Changes
June 25, 2020
Hosted by Dr. Suzanne B. Phillips
Whether faced with unforeseeable life circumstances, economic hardship, physical or emotional distress, many people wish that they could re-invent or re-define themselves. Could they dare consider a new line of work, a different relationship, a less addictive way of regulating stress, or a less passive response to controlling others? In this episode, Anita K, author of the book, Behaving Bravely: How to Mindshift Life’s Challenges, draws upon her own life, her work as a life coach in the competitive HR world and a wide range of recognized practices for mind and body to address ways to make difficult changes possible. What makes her approach appealing is her bridge from Reflective Practices like Meditation, mindfulness, visualization, affirmations etc. to action plans. Recognizing how difficult this can be, Anita captures the steps in the acronym BRAVE. She discusses and exemplifies how an achievable plan incorporates beliefs, readiness, alignment of steps, vision and engagement.
