Power Practice #15: Unhooking from Praise and Criticism

Feeling stuck? You’re not alone.

Many of us can vividly imagine the next phase of our lives, but are reluctant to take the leap until we’re “ready.” That’s why we love women’s business leadership expert and Emerging Women Live speaker Tara Mohr. Tara has made it her mission to dig into the underlying reasons we think we’re “not ready yet.” Much of it has to do, she says, with getting hooked on praise and criticism.

As we maneuver through our lives, we give a lot of credence to other people’s opinions. The business world is wrapped in layers and layers of feedback. And while feedback can be helpful, it can be debilitating if taken too personally.

Hit play to try Tara’s exercise in freeing yourself from praise and criticism to allow yourself to operate at your highest potential. Grab a pen and get ready to take that leap!

Tosha Silver Letting Go

Are you feeling stressed out, rushed, or overwhelmed?

This very simple practice has become a staple for the Emerging Women team. As Tosha Silver says, in this testosterone-driven culture it’s so important for us to let go of struggle and let the Inner Divine take the lead. That way we can operate not from a place of aggression, ego, or even passivity, but with an openness and receptivity that is felt deeply within the body.

You can do this quick and relaxing practice several times a day to shift into a calming, healing mindset. Get ready to move with the flow and enjoy the synchronicity and magic that results!

Power Practice #11 – Manage Your Stress In Any Situation

Erin Olivo Manage Your Stress

Understanding and being able to manage your emotions is one of the most important and most empowering life skills you can develop.

When your distressing emotions aren’t taken care of in a productive way, they can become the root of all of your most common issues—overeating, chronic relationship conflict, money mismanagement, substance abuse, and even, in many cases, poor physical health.

Getting distance and perspective from how we are feeling can be one of the most helpful ways to begin to manage distress and it is the key to shifting into Wise Mind. You can use this practice as an on-the-spot, quick fix whenever you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed out.

Play the Power Practice:

“Sometimes focusing on what is truly going on instead of dwelling on what we think should be is all it takes to transform our emotional experience.”

Erin Olivo, Ph.D., MPH, is a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 18-years experience treating patients. She has been an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medical Psychology at the Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons, since July 2004. She was formerly the Director of the Columbia Integrative Medicine Program.

Dr. Olivo currently maintains a private psychotherapy practice in New York City where she works with adults and teenagers who are dealing with stress, depression, anxiety, unhealthy relationships, chronic illness, self-destructive behavior, addictions, and over-eating.

Dr. Olivo’s treatment approach is solution focused and integrates cognitive behavior therapy and DBT therapy with mind-body strategies such as mindfulness meditation and hypnosis. She teaches her patients how to regulate their emotions, manage stress and anxiety, and achieve a more balanced approach to life that she calls Wise Mind Living.
