Live Q & A session for August.
Here is a summary of what we covered:
1:14 Claire asks Lisa: “When is it time to make change and when is it time to accept the current situation?
5:50 Sue is feeling grief and remorse towards her children as she hasn’t always been emotionally present. She has started to turn that around and become present, turning negative thoughts into positive ones. Sue asks Lisa if she has any tips.
8:40 Karen feels like she has done so much work, but not seeing a lot of change. Karen is struggling to sit with her ‘discomfort’ and asks Lisa how does she sit with hers.
14:58 Linda’s 15 and 12 year olds are attached to their devices. Linda asks Lisa about what fun activities she comes up with to get her kids off screens. “Do you have any wonderful ideas for getting teenagers excited about this?”.
20:50 Amelia asks Lisa: “What do you mean when you say we can control our thoughts? Do you mean we can control our response or actions to our thoughts? Or try to shift out focus? Amelia falls back to negative thinking (past, present or future), causing her to feel uncomfortable and sitting in discomfort. Amelia questions Lisa: “Do you mean thoughts are controlled by hypnosis, repetition, and changing behaviours?”
30:50 Valeska is finding it hard to prioritise all the things and asks Lisa about ‘Balance’. How does Lisa balance it all (wholefood cooking, work, school drop offs, extra curricular activities, playing/being with the kids, giving them what they need, looking after herself and her personal transformation work and coaching.
40:35 Amie asks Lisa:“How do you keep the stress and anxiety at bay (and prioritise) when the to do list gets backed up as a consequence of you resting or procrastinating?!”
46:15 Janine – “Why do I keep pandering to procrastination, especially when I know that great feeling of what it’s like to finally get something done! Why do we do this to ourselves?”
Question 2: Can you talk about ‘Rest’ and how we still associate all the negatives with it. For example; Laziness: “Can’t rest until everything is done. An accomplished day is one where all the boxes are checked on the infamous to- do list, which invariably translates to: “Look at all the things I didn’t get done today”.
