    Communication is so important in getting our own needs met and effectively assisting others. When we experience stress or during times of uncertainty, our communication can be one of the first thing that suffers. We are often flooded with emotions which make it difficult for us to dial in on effective communication. There are a few key things to keep in mind in order to maintain good levels of communication. Being clear with the ones around you is always important in delivering a message, as is creating steps along the way. And lastly, try to keep a clear and calm tone in the way you communicate.   LESSONS:  Communication can often suffer during times of stress and chaos. Dial in on your communication and work on building these skills through the following: Be clear. Provide steps in your communication. Avoid curse words or intense tones - remain calm.    SUBSCRIBE: Apple Podcasts: http://bit.ly/SpartanUpShow YouTube: http://bit.ly/SpartanUpYT Google Play: http://bit.ly/SpartanUpPlay   FOLLOW SPARTAN UP

    Mini: The Value of Interdependence with Dr. Lara Pence

    26/03/2020 Duración: 02min

    During times of stress and unpredictability, there is often no more important value than the value of interdependence. Interdependence is the recognition that I can rely on you and you can rely on me. For whatever reason, many of us have come to believe that reaching out to others for support is weakness or a demonstration of incompetence. In truth, using the support around you and offering support in return is a huge measure of strength and courage. Give yourself permission to reach out for help, ask for something that you need, and benefit from the value of interdependence. LESSONS: Interdependence is the acknowledgement of reciprocity in support - I need you, you need me. Utilize your support system by reaching out and expressing your needs. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you need. There is strength in being able to lean on others for help and also being strong when others need to lean on you.   SUBSCRIBE: Apple Podcasts: http://bit.ly/SpartanUpShow YouTube: http://bit.ly/SpartanUpYT Google Play: http:/

    Dr. Lara Pence says: Stress is something that we all encounter and learning how to be resilient to stress can be one of your most important skills. It’s important to remember and consider that stress isn’t going away anytime soon. Often we imagine that “life will get easier” but sometimes it just doesn’t. What does get easier? Our ability to manage and become more resilient. How do we do that when it comes to stress? It all starts with acknowledging and accepting stress. It’s not going away so let’s embrace it. And then we move into physical and mental fuel that can keep you accelerating during stress. LESSONS: Move into a state of radical acceptance when it comes to stress. It’s not going away so develop a mantra around it. Make sure your physical health is on point. Fuel your mind with content that makes you feel resilient and more capable of handling the stress that is on your plate.

    Mark Pattison was catching touchdown passes in the last minutes of games to stadiums of 100,000 plus thousand people.

    Mini: Moving Fear into Confidence with Dr. Lara Pence

    11/03/2020 Duración: 02min

    One of the best ways to build confidence is to utilize your fear of something and move through it with courage. Although some believe that courage is the absence of fear, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Courage is about being afraid but doing anyway - and from this we build confidence because we can reflect on that which we have accomplished and create a library of moments in which we see our greatness arise. Reality testing is another great way to build and tap into confidence that might already be there. By truly asking yourself questions like, What am I good at?, and seeking truth in our reflection we can create opportunities for us to have perspective on our strengths. LESSONS: Courage builds confidence, and courage is at play when we are afraid of something but we do it anyway. Try to use your fear as an opportunity for confidence building and use positive self-talk to get you through. Reality testing is a very healthy way to also build confidence. Reality testing includes taking a deep look at

    Mini: Listening for Learning with Dr. Lara Pence

    04/03/2020 Duración: 02min

    Host Dr. L says: There is a saying that God Gave Us Two Ears and One Mouth for a Reason. The notion: That we were born to listen more than we were to talk. In today’s society, the ever-present social media platform has given many a vehicle to use their voice, put out their message, and be heard. And, at the same time, as a society we are losing the art and skill of listening when our focus becomes ‘what can i say?’ instead of ‘how can I listen?’ In order to building back up the skill of listening, we must practice listening by being mindful about how we relate with others, and through truly dropping our own ego when we are in a position of listening. LESSONS: Building the skill of listening requires a mindful approach, one in which we are paying attention and working towards true engagement. Try being present with whom you are listening to by avoiding thinking about what you are going to say next or how you might sound and just practice hearing what they are saying. Engage in perspective shifting and cognitiv

    Mini: Making a Morning Routine that Works with Dr. Lara Pence

    26/02/2020 Duración: 01min

    The morning is one of the most important times of the day. It’s when we set our intentions, decide what tasks require our time and energy, and establish a foundation of perspective that will guide us throughout the next 12 hours. So doesn’t it make sense to treat this time with care? We think so. There are three things to keep in mind when your eyes open and you step out of that bed (on the right side that is!). First, what can you do for your body? How can you activate the physical parts of yourself that will be called upon during the day and awaken your body? Next, what do you plan to do for your brain? How will you activate a mindset that can hold for the entire day? And lastly, what is the best next step that you plan to take to move your decisions and responsibilities forward? LESSONS: Morning time is critical for you to set intentions for the day and start off on the right foot.
