When faced with big decisions, we can get stuck in a ruminating cycle of doom, where our emotions – mainly fear and it’s brutal cousin, anxiety – set up roadblocks that keep us from moving forward. So, how do you make a good decision when your emotions are working against you? Set up a daily practice that gives your mind the structure it craves, and support accurate emotional processing versus off the rails worst-case scenario spiraling.
Breathwork is an active form of meditation that helps break through stress and tap into healthy emotions that feed passion, creativity and a sense of connection. To pull these learnings into daily life we have developed a tool that support a daily practice of reflecting on moments of love, joy and peace occurred throughout your day.
This space is what mindfulness is all about. I teach about it on my Just Breathe with Eileen Fein podcast. It’s the space between what we feel and how we react to it. When we have enough space to step back and look at something for what it is versus what we feel it is, our frontal lobe – the executive decision maker – has a chance to step in and apply calm reason. It’s in this place of calm reason that we can make good decision.
