Today I am joined by therapist and Creator Of Solution Journal Box Mikaela Beck. Mikaela also joined BCT in March 2020 right before the pandemic. She made a bold choice to start a business which is such a shining example of living fully without fear and knowing what's possible when you truly commit to yourself. Mikaela is sharing simple tools with us to move through anxiety, and sharing a special code with our listeners!
Topics discussed in this episode:
Tools used to help move through anxietyThe benefits of disconnecting from whatever is causing us stress or we worrying about for fifteen minutes a dayMikaela’s fifteen-minute process for journaling and using it to our advantageWhy life after breast cancer can be the best years of your life How to stay connected to that highest version of you to thrive with ease
The power of journaling, and a routine you can implementTo process emotions so that the emotion doesn't get so big and take over everythingThe power you have to be in control of your prevention plan and not live scan to scan
Disconnect for fifteen minutes a day from whatever is stressing you out or making you worry.
“You know, children, spouses bills, like whatever, whatever it is, it stresses you out or that it's just something that you feel like you have to constantly, you know, be worried about. Like, um, for me, Understanding that 15 minutes a day has helped me so much. Like it could probably help other people, and just buy a helper, you know, my mentality always is, oh, how can I help this person?”
“I'm doing really great because I started this program like now a year ago where I was able to just figure out who I am and not be so scared of cancer, but also to just happen to like my energy and to be able to use that energy for good and not feel like I'm a burden and not feel like I'm somebody that has to be anxious because, you know, That's what, you know, productive people do or something like that.”
