Amira Posner joins us today as we're digging into how to recognize your patterns and why this matters if you are TTC.
We all have them. Patterns. The things we do over and over again.
Some of them are great, others are not very helpful for us.
Studies say that over ⅔ of our spontaneous thoughts are negative.
And while it can be difficult to stay positive when we’re the middle of a struggle - it's important to remember that there is a beginning and an end. This will not last forever.
So how do we identify our negative patterns (i.e. impatience, worry, anger, self-criticizing, etc.).
The first step is awareness.
I'm excited to welcome Amira Posner back to the podcast. Amira is a professional therapist with Bachelor and Masters Degrees in Social Work.
She also has formal training in hypnotherapy, Reiki, and the relaxation response. Amira and I work very closely together! We also co-facilitate the online Mindfulness Fertility Series together.
