05: 90 Sec’s To A Life You Love

Best-selling author, consultant, media host, and master clinician, Dr. Joan Rosenberg is a cutting-edge psychologist who is known as an innovative thinker, and acclaimed speaker and trainer.

The 90 sec formula= One choice, Eight feelings for 90 seconds. The one choice is to be aware, versus avoiding. To stay present.

See we do pleasant well. We need to lean into the unpleasant. The key is to be able to stay present and ‘tolerate’ the eight pleasant feelings.

Why eight? Because they are the most common feelings we experience when things don’t turn out our way.

The eight are:
sadness
shame
helplessness
anger
vulnerability
embarrassment
disappointment
frustration

The 90 seconds is based on neuroscience. When we have a feeling, they fire off body chemistry, which activates body sensations. When we flood, the bloodstream, via this causation of a feeling. By the time we flood the chemistry and flush it out is roughly 90 seconds.

So all you have to do is stay present. Then you get access to your full capacity of feelings.

Here’s a link to one of Dr. Joans Tedx Talks going into these feelings in detail
