The introduction to this subject will be Jill Bolte Taylor's book, "My Stroke of Insight." Dr. Taylor is a neuroanatomist who was slicing up brains at Harvard when she woke up one morning with a stroke in her Left Brain. She recognized what was happening but, being an expert, was so entranced by the phenomenon and by the joy in the Right Brain that she waited 4 hours to call for help. She experienced the truth of theories about the Left and Right Brain and its capabilities as well as the short comings of each side of our amazing control centers.
She experienced joy and a lack of fear that is worth reading about. Her book gave3 me some new ideas which I then tried out in webinars and classes, and found her theories are valid. Anxiety is not a necessary condition for anyone. By combining Dr. Taylor's insights and the information on the Now(focusing on the present moment) amazing changes can occur quite naturally. You can change anxiety in 90 seconds.
Why should you Attend: Anxiety is rampant in the United States right now. The NY Times recently delved into the prevalence of this emotional state: "An Anxious Nation", full page photo and story on the Styles section June 11, 2017 with no answers about how to change anxiety for anyone. They were reporting the situation, not the answer. Actually anxiety and fear, its bigger companion, reduce your effectiveness in many work situations. Anxiety is not good for your health, either. Anxiety is not a necessary part of your day.
The three steps to changing anxiety are:
- Awareness that you are experiencing it
- Knowledge that anxiety can be changed into almost any feeling you want if you know how
- Using the next 90 seconds wisely
The people, (hundreds) that I have taught this simple exercise to, think it is magic. It is the magic of your own brain and tapping into its possibilities. All you need are the steps.
