How to Get A Mental Six Pack
May 6, 2016
Hosted by Hemda Mizrahi
According to the Cleveland Clinic (http://www.clevelandclinicwellness.com) “humans have an average of 60,000 thoughts daily, 95% of which are the same thoughts repeated everyday. 80% of the habitual thoughts are negative.” Since our thoughts trigger our emotions, this indicates that we're experiencing similar emotions day-to-day. Given that we're wired to focus on potential threats, we typically feel survival-based emotions such as fear, judgment, shame, frustration, and anger. In survival mode, we come from a place of scarcity, yet we are essentially creative, growth-oriented beings whose physical survival is rarely in question. Thanks to evolution, we have a brain that’s able to imagine a great future, yet too often we use it in ways that generate “mental fat,” redundant, unproductive thinking that creates unnecessary stress, anxiety, and worry. Join us to learn about the three steps to a lean, agile mindset: override your biology, burn the mental fat, and flex your mental muscles!
