Should we strengthen our brains like we do our bodies? Absolutely. The problem is that we're rarely taught how. And what we hear about sometimes sounds weird or even embarrassing. But it's incredibly important. As Christopher Paolini says, "the monsters of the mind are far worse than those that actually exist. Fear, doubt, and hate have hamstrung more people than beasts ever have." In this episode of the Habit Chef Podcast, we'll explore four positive habits we can develop for strengthening our minds and fighting stress. Listen in, and you’ll learn what people who are mentally strong don't do, how to prevent yourself from doing them, why daily exercise is the next blockbuster drug, how to program yourself to think differently, how to quiet your mind, and what you should do for 20 minutes each day.
Have you ever been thrown off track by something you thought would be positive? I've certainly experienced that over the last couple of months. An opening in the leadership position at Port Royal caused me to rethink the trajectory of my role. After some evaluation, I decided to submit a plan to fill the gap and provide leadership for the next few years. An intensive interview processed ensued, and I was selected. Then the virtual can of worms exploded ... Combining the inherent intensity of a leadership transition with an annual owners' meeting and unexpected turnover in a key position led to weeks of feeling like I was being tossed by the waves and barely keeping my head above water. Eventually, we got enough key people and processes in place, and the intensity began to subside. Only then did I begin to make sense of what I'd experienced, how I should learn from it, and what I could share with you. In this episode of the Habit Chef Podcast, we'll uncover a surprising source of disruption and how to prevent it from derailing your progress.
