In this episode, we’re joined again by Jen Elmquist. Elmquist was our guest on our episode on “The Power of Mindset in Your Health and Life.” She’s a licensed marriage and family therapist and the co-creator of Life Time Mind, Life Time’s internal performance-coaching program.
We’re facing an unprecedented time of concern. Not just for the world globally, but for each of us personally, too. Our mental health is a foundational component of being able to handle the changes we’re experiencing.
Coping with the challenges we’re facing requires mental resiliency. Elmquist explains what resiliency is, and whether or not it’s something we all have or can cultivate.
Elmquist offers three ways we can build and reinforce resiliency in ourselves.
Our mindset can significantly affect the course of our days. Our brain is Velcro for the negative, and Teflon for the positive — the negative naturally sticks more. Elmquist details how we can control the drama dialogue around us and shift our outlook.
The ability to look at what we’re grateful for versus what’s troubling us is not only important for adults, but for kids, too.
David Freeman discusses the three C’s each of us are frequently doing: consuming, creating, and cultivating.
This situation has shown the adaptability of people. We’re all facing this hard time together and are altering our lives for the health and benefit of one another.
Elmquist walks us through both a grounding and a thought-shifting exercise that we can easily do in any moment to improve our resiliency and help mitigate feelings of stress and anxiety.
Elmquist shares what she’s doing right now to support her health and well-being.
