You’ve probably heard many times that it is not really what happens to us in life that is the most critical regarding our emotional wellbeing, but how we respond to what happens to us. It is our response-ability, the story that we construct from what happens, that determines the eventuality of our mental wellness. Your autonomic nervous system speaks the language of emotions.

In this 60 seconds clip, I share how you can use cognitive editing to re-construct your challenging experiences into stories that communicate the emotional language of resilience and safety to your nervous system.
