Stop and Breathe with Leah Davidson

EPISODE NOTES

About Leah Davidson: Leah is a Certified Life Coach and founder of Leah Davidson Life Coaching. She is also the host of the Building Resilience Podcast.

Leah has an MSc (A) in Speech Language Pathology from McGill University and has worked as an SLP Speech Language Pathologist for over two decades, helping people rehabilitate and rebuild their lives after a traumatic brain injury. She is deeply committed to helping people in living joyful lives through her coaching, which focuses on teaching them how to manage stress, deal with emotions, and build resilience.

 

In this episode, Adam and Leah discuss:

  • The inevitability of stress
  • Practicing controlled breathing
  • Dealing with stress and anxiety through neuroplasticity
  • Life is 50/50.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Stress is inevitable, but remember that most of your stress comes from the way you respond, not the way life is. It’s simply a matter of recognizing how stress manifests in your body and then dealing with that stress to help you achieve a much calmer state.
  • Controlled breathing is the simplest way to deal with stress. Whatever you’re going through, pausing for a moment to breathe and then exhaling will bring you peace of mind and focus.
  • You can rewire your brain, and it is your repetition, patience, and consistency in doing the things that will change the direction that you send your brain that will bring positive results in your life.
  • Teach your children that life is 50/50. Things don’t always turn out the way we want them to, so it’s okay to feel negative emotions about it; however, they must accept it as part of our human experience.

 

“Whatever situation you were in in your life, if you stop and breathe, it will make it much better.” —  Leah Davidson
