    New Episode: New Year, Better You

    Okay, we’re gonna say it.  The idea of New Year, New You is b******t.  Even though that’s exactly what we titled our episode kicking off 2021, it’s the wrong idea.  So we’re fixing the mishap this year and starting 2022 with New Year, Better You!  Because we all should keep the great things about ourselves: everything that is good, strong, valuable, loveable, or inspiring about yourself is definitely worth keeping – and then build from there to become an even better version of yourself!  Whether you started the year with a slate of resolutions – or key intentions (and we talk about the difference in today’s episode) – or you’re still working on defining what you want to accomplish in the coming months, we’re sharing some insights to help.  To help figure out what’s really important to you and set your goal, the importance of not just setting a goal but building a plan, and how cues & triggers are what really determine behavior (much more so than intentions!).  Understanding the habit loop and applying how our brain works can help you hack your behavior and start consistently doing the things you know are important.  So tune in, and get ready to become the best version of yourself in 2022!

    HAPPY HEALTHY XMAS

    HAPPY HEALTHY XMAS

    And just like that, it's Christmas time! Are you basking in a season of peace, love, hope and joy? Or are all the demands and expectations of the ending year and holiday planning causing you to feel stress, frustration, and sadness? Even if some of those negative emotions are creeping in, there's no need to let them hijack the entire spirit of the season. We can make choices and take actions to accept where we are and at the same time, embrace a healthy lifestyle and engage with the all the positive attributes of the holidays. Want to know more about how? Join us for our holiday chat about how to make it a Happy, Healthy Christmas!

    In today’s episode, Peggy and Jaimi catch up right before the holidays and talk about how to make this Christmas both happy and healthy, even if it feels like neither of those is coming naturally right now! There is often a disconnect between what the spirit of Christmas should be (full of peace, hope, security, love, healing, sharing, joy) and some of the things we’re actually feeling (stress, anxiety, sadness, frustration, nostalgia). We might be feeling overwhelmed with end-of-the-year workload and lots of social engagements, hectic about buying gifts and planning holiday gatherings, or missing important people in our life.  
    It’s okay to feel those things! Allow yourself to feel that way, and then reflect on what you’re feeling, and what is triggering the negative emotions. You can then design tactics to help manage those emotions and embrace a healthy lifestyle – including developing a positive mindset; accept where you are and use reflection to also still engage with the spirit of the season.
    Also think about what might still trigger you negatively in the days to come, or what might prevent the holidays from being happy and healthy for you. And proactively define strategies to address it. You’d like some input on key things that might help? Listen in to hear the Alphaweibchen Top 7 Tips for staying happy and healthy, so you can create your best Christmas experience. 😊

    Tomato Plants

    Tomato Plants

    Jami and Peggy are back with Season 2!

    After taking a publishing break to develop the AW Detox Program and a corporate training program,  they’re excited to share some of their experiences related to developing self-empowerment.

    Self-empowerment is about taking control of your life and being confident and actionable in moving it in the direction that’s right for you, by

    ·  making a conscious decision to take charge of your destiny
    ·  making positive choices
    ·  taking action to advance
    ·  being confident in your abilities

    Now, if you continuously have lots of new ideas, but you can never really put them into action, or if you are a very structured, organized person, but you are missing out on new ideas, the most important is to recognize your strength and acknowledge that you are capable of much more than you imagine.

    Three key things you can do to build your self-empowerment:

    1.  Define your goals (the big ones and the small ones in between!)

    A great method to do that is the WOOP Model (by Gabrielle Oettinger).  It stands for Wish, Outcome, Obstacles and Plan and is a simple, powerful way to set those meaningful goals that create purpose, motivation, and perseverance!

    2.  Develop a Growth Mindset and use it to get out of your comfort zone:

    A growth mindset is all about embracing challenges and seeing them as opportunities to learn.  It changes your thinking from, “I can’t do that” to “I can’t do that YET – but I can learn it.”  And the more we seek out these opportunities to learn and grow, the more empowered we feel!

    So go try to do something that you think you can’t – you’ll be surprised at how far you get and how strong you become!

    3.  Practice Self-awareness:

    This is all about recognizing your personal strengths and putting them to use. Doing the things we’re good at – which are also the things that feel good when we’re doing them – creates and environment where we’re more likely to enter a state of “flow.” And flow is a huge factor in building empowerment.

    4.  What does all of this have to do Tomato Plants and Box Collections?  

    Have a listen to the episode to find out!  😊  And we’ll also share with you a couple of our personal “hacks” to build a sense of self-empowerment, even on those days when you just aren’t feeling it.

    Quicky to go: How to break the negative thinking pattern cycles

    Quicky to go: How to break the negative thinking pattern cycles

    It might be natural to fall into negative thinking patterns when we're faced with difficulties, but we want to minimize and avoid the impacts of these counter-productive behaviors. Getting unstuck starts with recognizing the pattern, and then using techniques to turn your thinking around.  Some great ones to use:   

    1. Evidence (use data to convince yourself that your negative thoughts are wrong)
    2. Re-frame (look at things from a more optimistic and positive perspective)
    3. Plan (develop contingency plans to use if the negative stuff actually occurs - having the plan removes some of the scariness from the situation!) Listen in to today's quicky for more about these approaches, and then use them to limit your negative thoughts and increase your resilience!   





    #resilience #bounceback #mentallytough #mentaltoughness #strength #overcome #resilient #challenge #pivot #adapt #mentalagility #cognitiveflexibility #spirituality #mindfulness #stayconnected #sciencebasedaction  If you love these approaches, you can learn more about boosting resilience in Dr. Karen Reivich's class "Resilience Skills in a Time of Uncertainty" on @coursera

    Quicky to go: Beware the negative thinking patterns!

    Quicky to go: Beware the negative thinking patterns!

    Sometimes, we are the biggest threat to our own resilience!  When we get triggered by challenging situations, we often respond with that primal fight or flight instinct: our minds and body go on high alert, start looking for threats and danger, and our brain employs all it's negative neural networks (which are MUCH more numerous than our positive neural networks!).  That can result in us getting stuck into negative thinking patterns that are destructive - to our resilience, because they eat up all our energy and strength without helping us move forward - and destructive to our success, because they get in way of us constructively finding solutions for the difficulty we're facing.  There are 5 main negative thought processes that people largely get stuck in: mind-reading, the "ME" trap,  the "THEM" trap, catastrophizing, and helplessness.  In this video, Jaimi introduces those concepts (and you'll recognize some of them from Peggy's shared experience in Resilience Quicky 3!), so that you can better avoid getting stuck in these damaging thinking patterns.
