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

    6:13

    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 --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaweibchen/message

    Quicky to go: Beware the negative thinking patterns!

    11:43

    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.

    Quicky to go: Mental Agility and Spirituality

    3:36

    Mental agility refers to our ability to look at a situation from multiple perspectives, it’s related to problem solving and often referred to as cognitive flexibility.  When we encounter challenging situations, we sometimes get trapped into one way of thinking - and it might well not be a way that leads us to dealing with the difficulties we're facing in a constructive way!  So building mental agility and practicing the approach of looking at things from different angles will help us discover better ways forward - creating greater resilience.  The other aspect here is spirituality. Defined in many different ways, at the core of spirituality is a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, a belief that there is more to life than what meets the senses. It can also be seen as a kind of turning inward to find balance and independence from external factors and influences, and often manifests as a search for meaning, purpose and direction. Having this sense of connection and nurturing it can give us hold during times of hardship; practicing mindfulness helps to distance ourselves enough from the trials to find strength again, and to formulate better responses.

    Qicky to go: Self-Awareness and Self-Regulation

    5:19

    This is all about being tuned in to yourself; hitting the pause button and paying attention to your emotions, your reactions, what’s happening physiologically (breathing rapidly, elevated heart rate, shaking hands…). And then having the ability to consciously change and guide these factors in a constructive way. #resilience #bounceback #mentallytough #mentaltoughness #strength #overcome #resilient #challenge #pivot #adapt #selfawareness #selfregulation #selfaware --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaweibchen/message

    Resilience

    52:50

    That almost-magical, super-hero strength that enables people to push through the hardest of hardships, to bounce back quickly from setbacks; that mental toughness that enables us to overcome obstacles with energy:  RESILIENCE.   Where does it come from, why do some people seem to have endless amounts of it while others falter?  And how can we build our own supply of resilience, so that we can #staystrong in difficult and uncertain times?  We talked about all this and more with Nick Hollis, who through not only his extreme athletic challenges but also through his business experiences and his recent battle with long Covid knows a lot about what it takes to be resilient.  Nick shares two key stories in today’s episode:  his experience with long Covid “During 3 months in bed…your mind goes to some really dark places,” and his amazing tale of summiting Everest, only to become snow-blind as he reached the top and enduring a harrowing, virtually sightless descent from the world’s highest peak.  We talk about the mental state that such challenges – and the everyday challenges that we are living through – can create, and how to push on despite the setbacks.  There are ways to build and nourish resilience, and Nick’s got great advice that we can all implement.  Building resilience and being able to draw on it when we need to will prepare us for the unknown, the unexpected, and the uncomfortable.   We also talk a bit about the need to care not only for ourselves, but for the planet we live on.  And Nick shares his latest incredible endeavor: to become the person on the planet to have climbed the Seven Summits, rowed the Atlantic ocean and walked to both poles faster than anyone else.  His drive to complete this World Record challenge is the 721 Challenge and an effort in creating more action to protect the planet.   Find out more at www.721challenge.com and www.nickhollis.com, and follow him on Instagram: @721_challenge and @fitwaysadventures --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaweibchen/message

    Swipe - Love - Marry

    23:40

    Modern Love: swipe - love - marry Is love in the modern world as superficial as photos in an app?  Or is it stronger than ever before, because we're more empowered to choose the love we want, how and when and with whom we want it?   How does commitment fit in?  And in a lockdown environment, how do you meet potential new partners?  What's the likelihood of those partners being more than just a flirt, hook-up, or fling?  Can we expect to get more out of it?  Our need for love hasn't diminished and in fact it's probably grown substantially as we struggle through life's challenges and combat that feeling of "alone-ness."  So join us today as we discuss all these questions, and share the story of one woman's experience as she embraces the new tools available to help meet new people, and find a true partner. The first modern online dating sites were launched back in 1994 and 1995, and since then the numbers of people turning to technology to help find partners (or friends, or playmates, or…) has skyrocketed.  Around 2009, dating apps came on the scene and with the launch of Tinder in 2012, they securely took the world by storm: matchmaking via smart phone made it easier than ever to meet new people.  Not always with resounding success, of course (we’ve heard some horror stories!).  Humans are incredibly resilient, though, technology keeps improving, and we learn how to better use it to our advantage.  The result: a dating app industry doing over $3 Billion in annual revenues, with 270 million users and steady growth across the board.  There is a plethora of options to choose from: Tinder, Grindr, okcupid, Bumble, Hinge, Badoo, Match, eharmony, Plenty of Fish, Silver Singles…  the list goes on…and on…and on.  Each platform has their pros and cons, slightly different approaches and target audience, user demographics (for example, on Tinder 85% of users are under 34, with a median age of 26, and about 75% are men;  contrast that to Match, with only 48% under 34, and almost equal gender distribution).  Some apps you can set up and get swiping within minutes, other require more detailed profile questionnaires, preferences, and information. All of them use algorithms to hopefully find exactly those people you’re going to like; assuming, of course, the algorithms are good and really working to help the users.  Our take-away: technology can be a great asset to help in the search for love!  Or friendship. Or fun.  If you know what you’re looking for, how to choose the best system for your needs and values, and do a little bit of homework on optimizing your use of the system – you’re bound to get results!  They might not all be perfect, but some of them will be really good, and with a little luck and persistence – that perfect one just might turn up in the end! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaweibchen/message

    Quicky to go: Gratitude and Savoring

    4:40

    STOP.  What’s good in your life today?    Put it in the comments below, because taking time to consciously practice gratitude increases your well-being. Writing down the things you’re grateful for is a great way to practice gratitude – and to also positively contribute to others’ lives, in helping them to see the positives!    Now look around for a moment.  What are you doing, seeing, or hearing that is wonderful?  Is the sun shining?  Are serene flakes of snow falling gently to the earth? Is your dog smiling at you?   Are you cuddled up in pajamas on a comfortable sofa?  Take a deep breath and savour this moment, to get the biggest possible boost out of it.   #lifeisgood --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaweibchen/message

    Quicky to go: Exercise, sleep and connect

    5:43

    Mood-boosting chemicals?  Yes please!  We’re not talking about the stuff you can buy in nightclubs or on the street, though.  We believe in the naturally-generated good stuff.  Best ways to get it?    1.        Exercise.  Releases chemicals that dull pain, relieve stress, and raise our spirits.  Result: improvements in mental altertness, energy level and overall mood.  2.        Sleep. Gives our brains and bodies time to clean things up, get rid of all the bad stuff and recover. Result: mood stabilization and better cognitive and physical performance the next day!  3.        Social connections. Triggers stress-reducing hormones and chemicals related to higher empathy and more trusting relationships.   Result: strengthened immune system, better resiliency, higher well-being and you’ll even live longer! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaweibchen/message
