Imposter Syndrome is a tough one! Basically, it means that you feel like a fraud, a fake, incompetent. And the fear is that others are going to figure this out.

And the kicker is that we ALL suffer from this from time to time.
To counteract this, you need find the truth and evidence of the opposite.
The evidence that shows you are what you say you are.
Our inner voice can be very wrong, rude and mean.

Boundaries are so important for your inner strength, confidence and well being.
Here is one small thing you can do every day to maintain healthy boundaries.

This COVID thing is still happening! So many of you have been unexpectedly working from home for almost a year now.
While it might feel like you have it mostly figured out by now, there might still be some suggestions that you haven't yet considered... like this one⬆️

*make a separate space for your "home office"
*make sure to take a lunch ... away from your computer and phone
*have a specific "quitting time" from work
*leave your "office" at the end of the day

Your Monday Motivation is to make sure you are doing self-care as often as possible!
Yes, it can feel very selfish to do things JUST for you. But the fact is that YOUR self-care is good for EVERYONE in your life.
Think about that for a second...

If you are not taking care of yourself you can be tired, irritable, anxious, sad... and the list goes on. That definitely impacts your loved ones.
On the flip side of that, though, is taking care of yourself. Then you are NOT tired, irritable, anxious, sad, etc.
So the end result of self-care is a win-win!!

Holidays seem to lose their fun once you become an adult. But it doesn't have to be that way, not even in a pandemic. Create your own fun.
*Start a new tradition this year
*Have family game night every night before Christmas
*Have your surly tween help you bake cookies while your favorite Holiday movie plays

Happy Holidays!!

I'm a therapist, so it makes sense that I would say this.
But.... it is SO true!
Going to therapy is great and you really ought to try it. Everyone can benefit from working through the things that cause them distress.

How are you able to handle discomfort?

Signs of a large window of tolerance 📝⁣

Having a large window of tolerance means that you’re able to feel stress without getting overwhelmed or shut down. ⁣

It means that you’re able to regulate your emotions, meaning you control your feelings, not the other way around. ⁣

Some of the best ways to help widen the window of tolerance include mindfulness, neurofeedback and DBT skills. ⁣

Once you widen the window, you’re able to effectively process traumatic life experiences, without getting retraumatized by them. ⁣
