Above Ground Podcast #198, Just Breathe

Thinking does interact with feeling and behavior.  Dr. Michelle Marks believes it’s the emotion we encounter before the thought. Dr. Marks also feels that if we could just breathe momentarily, we might quell the alarm that goes off in so many of us.

It’s episode one hundred ninety-eight of Above Ground Podcast, and this week we are talking about emotions and the alarms they set off in our bodies and minds. Little tiny abrasions affect our authenticity stress. 

Our sympathetic stress response comes from us being wired to react, proving that response is different from reaction and has separate frequencies that they carry.  Our deep sense of shame keeps us from feeling the connections we need so badly. Shame is a reaction. A possible false tale that you have questions and doubts. 

During our time together, we cover RUTs (Repetitive Unhelpful Thoughts), the ideas of “distract, detach, and dispute.”  Everything starts with self-compassion.  Psychological Fitness and its five elements; self-care, breathing, mindfulness, positivity, and self-compassion. Those alone can help to make the world a safer place.
