How do you increase your emotional agility during difficult times? I’m excited to welcome a very special guest today, Dr. Susan David. Susan is an award-winning Harvard Medical School psychologist and author of the #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling book, Emotional Agility

In this episode, Susan shares how emotional agility includes skills like curiosity, compassion, and courage that determine how we deal with complicated or challenging situations. 

She also warns us to avoid rigid living, which causes us to push emotions aside in the service of forced positivity. Susan suggests that it takes more courage to notice what you are feeling and do the same for others than to avoid negative emotions altogether.  

If you have ever felt forced to ignore your negative feelings or struggled to manage your emotions during challenging times, this is a show you can’t afford to miss.

How do you do show up as the best version of yourself?

We all have those days when we don’t show up as our best selves, but it really doesn’t help to beat yourself up about it. The solution could be quite simple.

Today I’m excited to welcome our special guest, Dr. Greg Kelly. Greg is a Naturopathic physician (N.D.), lead product formulator, and author.

In this episode, Greg shares the importance of understanding concepts and mental models, so we don’t blame ourselves for our behaviors. Being grouchy or irritable is a symptom that your mental energy is depleted. Often, all we need is an opportunity to recharge to show up as the best versions of ourselves.

How do you develop resilience? 

It’s true that it takes grit to accomplish your goals, learn better, and achieve more, but what if you think you don’t have what it takes?

On today’s show, we welcome our extraordinary guest, Joe De Sena. Joe is a New York Times bestselling author, podcast host, and founder and CEO of Spartan races.

In this episode, Joe trumps the myth that mental toughness is a thing you have or you don’t. Like the millions of people who have completed the Spartan races, from kids to green berets, Joe shares that resilience is a muscle built by doing something physical. He insists that doing hard things is as simple as putting one foot in front of the other, and we are all much stronger than we think.

Today’s show was recording during a live podcast episode that I decided to do for the Kwik Community about valuable lessons I’ve learned that have helped improve my quality of life over time.

One of the most powerful tools we have is the ability to imagine and visualize. 

Children naturally do this when they're learning rapidly about our vast world. As we "grow up," we stop doing this and rely on what we already know. 

However, the ability to visualize is so important in every aspect of our lives because your mind cannot tell the difference between what's real and vividly imagined.

In this session, I will teach you tools to be able to practice your visualization to shift your perception of what you want to create in your life.

What are 5 tangible things you can do during COVID-19?

When thinking about how to look at self-isolation and social distancing in a positive light, the butterfly came to mind. The butterfly is a powerful symbol of change but more importantly, for self-transformation. They begin as a caterpillar and embark on an incredible journey, where through the process of metamorphosis, they transform into a butterfly. It's a powerful metaphor, speaking to our own ability to move through our life cycles.

Right now, we're all in a metaphorical cocoon, safe and secure in our four walls. And within our cocoon, we face our own struggles. We know that through struggle comes strength and with challenge comes change. So while we're in this cocoon of our home, instead of feeding our fear, our doubts, our regrets, our loneliness, we have the opportunity to identify the thoughts that no longer serve us. Because the same level of thinking that got us where we are isn't going to get us where we need to go.

To help with this transformation, I want to give you the FIVE things I'm doing while staying at home.
