Hello from Coach Meg!
In the past two weeks my
Canadian alma mater and my
local Wellesley newspaper wrote profiles of my entrepreneurial
career, how I started, as a biologist with an MBA, in biotechnology
and then envisioned professional coaches in health and wellness
through Wellcoaches. My twin backgrounds in biotech and coaching
have come together in the
Organize Your Mind book as we connect how we can best use our
brain's focus to learn and change.
Taming frenzy, building positive emotions, eliciting an intense and
undistracted focus, combining working memories, shifting to new
perspectives and connecting the dots to get to the big picture.
These are the hallmarks of a great coaching session.
Where can you start to coach yourself to change your biology? A
South African scientist recently shared with me a published
research study that showed when you calm your heart rate by
taming negative emotions and eliciting positive emotions, your
cognitive function improves - better attention, working memory
access, and cognitive agility. Imagine – calming your heart in order
to calm your brain and think better. How cool is that!
What do you do to improve the biology of your brain in ways that
you notice? Please share and comment on any of our e-newsletter pieces
