Negative Self-Talk Can’t Be Eliminated, But . . .

The negative self-talk habit — or any habit for that matter — can never be eliminated. It will always be hiding someplace in our brain, ready to jump into action when triggered by an old cue; just as you don’t forget how to ride a bicycle. Even when we’ve established a solid replacement habit, for …

Intelligent Women: Leading from Fear or Love?

Do women lead by fear? I don’t think so. Should they? I don’t know. In my experience many women, in many ages and phases of life, parenting, leading, following, volunteering, partnering are doing what they’re doing by love not fear. Here’s a quote from a Harvard Business …

Mind or Brain? Who’s In Charge?

Mind or brain? Which one manages your thinking, feelings, behavior? Is brain fitness the same as mind fitness? Who’s running the show up in your head?

Does Talking Out Stress Help Women Live Longer?

Stress As I write this post, I’m feeling slightly stressed at the prospect of a flight to LA — a quick trip for a graduation — and of course all the family dynamics that will inevitably charge the scene. I’m working on managing that stress, motivated by recent posts and this one too! I’m a …

The Stressed Sex — Guess Who?

Women are more stressed and are diagnosed with anxiety and depressive disorders more frequently than men, according to authors of The Stressed Sex, Daniel and Jason Freeman. It’s certainly plausible that women experience higher levels of stress because of the demands of their social role …

Habits Again!

What? Meditation can help you carry out the intention to break a habit? That’s what author Jeremy Dean says in his book Making Habits, Breaking Habits, while also acknowledging that meditation is not for everyone. Although Dean is quoting research, I’m unsure of how that process works and he doesn’t provide details. …

How Do You Break Habits? Easily? Nope.

How do you break a habit? Breaking the negative self-talk habit with a focus on using new brain science (my current book project) changes the approach, but doesn’t change some facts about making and breaking habits. Jeremy Dean’s book, Making Habits, Breaking Habits comments that the intention to break a habit is …
