As an athletic coach who is coaching middle distance and long distance runners, I am required to undergo CPR training and renew that training every two years.
CPR is a simple but very effective lifesaving procedure to preserve a person’s brain physically when they are in cardiac arrest.
My CPR training as an athletic coach made me thing about something as a life coach.
As a life coach, is there a simple but effective emergency procedure you can use to “preserve” your brain when you are suffering from an “emotional arrest?”
“Emotional arrest” occurs when you feel overwhelmed or feel you can’t handle a situation and your body typically responds with a “fight or flight” response.
An emotional arrest is an interference with your brain’s regular performance of processing emotional functions causing extreme and immediate panic, anxiety, fear, indecision, etc.
Emotions are defined as “bodily reactions that are activated through neurotransmitters and hormones released by the brain.”
When you are faced with a person, situation or event in your life, you create one or more emotions, based on your current attitudes, beliefs, physical perceptions and from the physical sensations you receive from your 5 senses of the sight, sound, touch, smell and taste.
In many instances a person, situation or event in your life causes you to create one or more emotions that cause you to get overloaded and to go into “emotional arrest.”
The emotions that you create under “emotional arrest” include a complex and interrelated set of behavior patterns and reactions that are likely detrimental to your mental and physical health.
So how can you effectively handle any situation in which you are under “emotional arrest?”
Use Emotional CPR. Use this simple and effective Emotional CPR Technique that I have developed.
Applying Emotional CPR tecniques when your are facing an emotional arrest condition allow you to create a positive impact into your life.
