In this episode of Live On Purpose Radio, Dr. Erik Korem joins Dr. Paul Jenkins to get really practical about developing psychological flexibility. Negative thoughts have a way of manifesting so quickly we often don’t realize there’s a problem until it’s too late. And since negativity has never positioned someone for success, we need an antidote to these emotions that derail action. Enter cognitive restructuring: retraining your brain to mitigate destructive thoughts or behaviors by training yourself to be psychologically flexible. Erik breaks down how the trifecta of being present, embracing uncomfortable feelings, and taking deliberate action guided by our values not only makes us more optimistic, but puts us one step closer to the kind of person we want to be.
