Love Your Practice

Nov 19, 2019

Welcome back to Feeling Good! I’m very excited about today’s episode because I’ve been nerding out on thoughts, feelings, emotions, and where all these things come from. So many of you are telling me that you’re stressed and worried, whether it’s about your dental practice or your health and wellbeing, and believe me, I know how you feel. I’ve been there. We’ve all been there. But I don’t want you to feel discouraged. I’m here to tell you that it’s totally possible to feel better, and here’s how:

You are fully capable of feeling better no matter the circumstance when you understand where all your thoughts and emotions are coming from. Today I’m breaking down our evolutionary and natural development of emotions and why they motivate us to feel or act a certain way. All animals have emotions because it’s nature’s way of keeping us alive, but these days our emotions are manifesting in modern ways. 

Nature uses emotions to agitate us into action. These emotions cause a vibration that gets us to move within and react to our environment, but this modern environment is not in our evolutionary genetics. This causes our body to react in ways we might think are weird or out of place. I’m sharing tips today that can change the way you think about your emotions and therefore change the way you react and feel about certain modern hindrances, like a fear of rejection, for example. We all have that fear, whether it’s in our interpersonal relationships or in our dental practice, and there are ways to combat this negative emotion and feel better, happier, and more at ease.

The techniques to fight off these negative thoughts and feelings are known as “meta-cognition”. I’m explaining what meta-cognition is and how you can do it in today’s episode. These techniques will help you create a more positive pattern of thinking. If you’re interested in learning more about how you can watch the way you think and feel better no matter the circumstances, this episode is for you. Tune in now and visit my website to learn more ways to practice meta-cognition.
