I AM A CERTIFIED LIFE COACH AND I KNOW A FEW THINGS ABOUT HAVING A BRAIN THAT DOESN’T ACT LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE’S.
I spent years of my life and multiple thousands of dollars trying to “fix” what was “wrong with me”, until I realised that there actually was NOTHING wrong with me. When I started working WITH my brain, everything else in my life just fell into place. Not only did I feel way less stress & anxiety, I also began purposefully creating results that I WANTED in my life. Now I’ve helped hundreds of other women do the same.
Today, we dive deep into the concept of being the boss of your brain – a skill crucial for navigating the challenges of neurodivergence. Contrary to common misconceptions, being the boss of your brain doesn’t mean eliminating all negative thoughts or self-doubt. Instead, it’s about understanding and working with the natural tendencies of our brains.
Many of us, especially those who are neurodivergent, experience a unique relationship with our brains. It can feel like a constant battle with overwhelming thoughts and unhealthy coping mechanisms. The truth is, our brains are wired to identify problems and solve them, which can lead to a barrage of thoughts, creating anxiety and stress.
In this episode, we explore the idea that some people have naturally still minds, while others, like many neurodivergents, have busy brains that tend to fixate on problems. The key is not to suppress the busyness but to redirect it in a way that promotes peace and productivity.
I share insights from my personal experiences and coaching sessions, emphasizing the importance of giving your brain a job – a positive focus or goal. Whether it’s aiming for a career milestone, enhancing relationships, or fostering personal growth, understanding the result you desire allows you to guide your brain toward supportive thoughts.
Towards the end, I introduce a three-part audio training available at joinamanda.ca, designed to help you navigate your brain and handle anxiety more effectively. Being the boss of your brain is an ongoing practice, and with the right tools, you can transform your mental and emotional well-being.
If you’re ready to take charge of your brain and experience a positive shift in your life, don’t miss this episode. And remember, you’re not alone on this journey – we’re in it together!
