From a world-renowned psychologist, a simple and effective method for managing your most distressing emotions and cultivating the character traits you need to create the life of your dreams.
In her 30 years as a practicing psychologist, Dr. Joan Rosenberg has found that what most often blocks people from success and feeling capable in life is the inability to experience, move through, and handle 8 unpleasant feelings. Knowing how to deal with these intense, overwhelming or unwanted feelings is essential to building confidence, emotional strength, and resilience. Yet when we distract or disconnect from these feelings, we move away from confidence, health, and our desired pursuits, ultimately undermining our ability to fully realize our ambitions.
Neuroscientists suggest that the biological life span of a feeling, often known first through bodily sensations, lasts approximately 90 seconds. Dr. Rosenberg teaches listeners to be aware of, consciously lean into, and balance unpleasant emotional feelings by riding the 90-second waves of bodily sensations. By staying present to these 8 feelings, you can cultivate the confidence to handle life's challenges and the deep sense that you can pursue whatever you want.
Combining aspects of mindfulness, clinical psychology, and neuroscience research, 90 Seconds to a Life You Love is a strategic and practical guide to building core emotional strength and developing the confidence and self-esteem you need to create a life you truly want to live.
