In our fast paced and demanding world where the ability to pivot and transition every day is a necessity, how do we move past what Psychologists call "Impostor Syndrome" to conquer the deeper fears of not being enough?

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | REVIEW THIS PODCAST

Impostor Syndrome is a concept that describes individuals who are marked by an inability to realize their accomplishments and have a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud." This way of thinking causes us to dismiss our accomplishments and abilities, feeling they may have occurred from luck, circumstance, or having deceived others into thinking we're someone other than our true selves.

To some extent, everyone is ingrained with this mental noise that can tell us we're not good enough or don't belong. Our mind often wonders what may happen if people find out we're not as intelligent as they think. These thoughts can be the loudest when pursuing a goal or passion, and the fear of exposing ourselves as a failure can limit exploration and destroy the courage needed to delve into new experiences.

To overcome these limiting and destructive thought processes, it's necessary to ask ourselves an important question:

How can we move past Impostor Syndrome to develop our power, awareness, and take action in the direction of our true desires?

On this episode of Wellness Force Radio, we explore this topic and much more with Ella Lucas-Averett, Host of the "On Air With Ella" Podcast. During this interview, she discusses techniques to move past our fears and find greater alignment in our lives.

Listen To Episode 127 As Ella Uncovers:

  • Why she felt a calling to spread the message of health and wellness
  • The importance of taking complete accountability in our lives
  • How to start where we are, use what we have, and do what we can
  • Why the path towards success isn't a linear journey
  • How to make sure impostor syndrome doesn't stop us from pursuing the things we desire
  • The power that comes from being authentic
  • Triggers that can amplify impostor syndrome
  • How we can take an emotional inventory and find our authentic voice
  • Ways to turn fear into curiosity
  • How to determine if something isn't in alignment with our true selves
  • How thoughts are manufactured around events, situations, and circumstances
  • The importance of taking complete accountability in our relationships
  • Why taking action won't always be fun and comfortable
  • How we can use visualization to overcome our fears
  • The tools that help us move through impostor syndrome

Top 3 Takeaways From Ella

  • In order to take more control over our lives, it's necessary to develop radical accountability with our thoughts, emotions, and actions.
  • We must choose to manufacture powerful thoughts if we are to move past our fears and find greater alignment.
  • There is strength in vulnerability and letting our authentic selves shine through to the world. Trying to project an image of perfection can hold us back from finding our deeper calling.

When we're faced with challenging times and our health, happiness, and lust for life begins to suffer, how can a powerful mindset assist in helping us consciously create a more desirable experience?

HRV - With the chronic stress and multitude of health conditions in our modern world, it can be extremely beneficial to understand how Heart Rate Variability can optimize our wellness and bring the autonomic nervous system into better balance.

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | REVIEW THIS PODCAST

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is the change in time between successive heart beats, and these small variations occur in response to internal and external events.

These fluctuations are directly linked to our autonomic nervous system which helps to control our bodies unconscious processes. By tracking these variations, we can better understand our nervous systems, cardiovascular systems, and respiratory systems, and how our bodies are able to respond to many of life’s stressors that have a massive impact on our wellness.

By tracking these unique variations over time, we can better understand the signals we receive from our body. In just 30-60 days using HRV, this can lead an increase in our ability to recognize and better manage life’s stressors.

If we want to use this HRV data to truly improve our physical and emotional intelligence, we get to ask ourselves an important question:

How can a prime biomarker like HRV practically improve how we manage our emotions, stress, burnout, and decrease our risk for many of today's common ailments?

On this episode of Wellness Force Radio, we explore this topic and much more with Jason Moore, CEO of Elite HRV. During this interview, Jason discusses the importance of monitoring our HRV, and his non-evasive tracking tool that will help us gain insight into this important biomarker and how we can use it to fuel our health journey.

  • Open Enrollment: HRV - How HRV relates to optimal wellness
  • His transition from the oil industry to the health technology space
  • Why he feels HRV is such an important piece of data to track
  • How we can better understand if we are moving in the direction towards better health
  • How to avoid long periods of troubleshooting and assist in developing our intuition with wearable technology
  • The ancestral origins of the "Greek Physician's Pulse Watch"
  • How we can better maintain our energy, digestion, mental clarity, and stress response
  • Why our health plans need to be individualized
  • How monitoring HRV helps us gain insight into the functionality of our autonomic nervous system
  • Why some people may be more inclined to build aerobic fitness
  • Using HRV for increasing our emotional intelligence
  • Why we receive the most accurate measurement of HRV shortly after waking up
  • How we can use HRV to receive indications of possible health issues
  • The physical and mental impact on children that live in stressful home environments
  • How tech can provide us with the data and proof we may need to adjust our behavior
  • Reasons we should use tech instead of relying solely on our intuition
  • How this technology can show warning signs of underlying stress
  • Micronutrients and supplements that influence HRV
  • How our micronutrient intake affects our HRV
  • Learning to better regulate our levels of stress
  • His future goals and plans for Elite HRV
  • How stimulation from media is affecting our health

Top 3 Takeaways From Jason Moore

  • We can sometimes spend years trying to develop our wellness intuition. We can speed up this process if we learn the proper ways to track and analyze our biological data through different forms of wellness tech.
  • Extreme exercise might make us "better" at certain activities, but this may be at the expense of other parts of our wellness.  Technology can help us know when to slow down so we don't jeopardize important areas of our health.
  • HRV can give us incredible insight into other areas of our wellness and how our body functions.  We don't need massive amounts of tracking with HRV, 5 minutes a day for a couple weeks can give us great insight into how we can adjust our lifestyle to improve our wellness.

Power Quotes From Jason

"The body is quite resilient if we give it the tools that it needs to manage stress." - Jason Moore

"HRV has been shown to correlate with our biological age." - Jason Moore

"Inundating people with more data than they need is a source of stress in and of itself." - Jason Moore

"HRV is the most accurate non-evasive measure of your autonomic nervous system." - Jason Moore

Craig Ramsay is here to show us that we no longer have to stress out over an intense workout regimen, and that building our physical and emotional fitness can be a fun and enjoyable process.

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | REVIEW THIS PODCAST

It's no secret that exercise can be overwhelming when we go into it with the all-or-nothing mentality. This approach can lead to health activities that don't resonate with us emotionally and cause us to quit when we don't attain certain fitness goals. We can avoid this situation by finding fun and healthy ways to improve our fitness no matter where we are, and by building more excitement and laughter into the process.

When we engage in workouts that really light us up inside and let go of the stress that comes with always having to be perfect, we are going to thrive emotionally, become healthier, and transform our physique.

The Importance of Posture

Most people are unaware of their poor posture and movement habits, and this can have a greater impact on our health than we realize.

We don't have to seek out a yoga or pilates class to improve our posture and ability to stretch.  We can start to increase our awareness for how we move and better our bodies' alignment by using certain techniques right away.

Craig recommends that we picture holding a washcloth in the back part of our armpit.

Simply doing this is going to help us elevate the chest, push the shoulders back and down, and allow us to breathe better and fuel our bodies with more oxygen.

This improvement in our posture will help us move throughout our day with intention, intensity, and purpose.

 

Stretch: A Reason To Wine

Craig Ramsay Stretch With Wine

When Craig trained the women from the hit TV show on Bravo, "The Real Housewives," they allowed him to change their workouts and also their eating plans, but had 1 very serious stipulation:

He was not allowed to take away their wine!

Since Craig was a trained contortionist, ballet dancer, and stretching expert, he had no problem coming up with a fun way to incorporate the ladies' love for wine and his love for stretching and moving the body.

Craig knew about the scientific research showing that minimal amounts of wine can have benefits to our health and also chemically improve our ability to stretch.  That is when his new exercise class was born:

Stretch - A Reason To Wine!

His class includes a 5 wine tasting flight, which he pairs together with a stretch that matches the taste and experience of each wine.  He finds his participants feeling great, becoming more comfortable in a social fitness environment, and having a wonderful time in the process.

Listen to WFF o10 As Craig Uncovers:

  • His experiences on Reality TV that showed him the true power of being vulnerable
  • Why he feels the bodybuilding industry has done an injustice to our views on health and wellness
  • He shows us how we can have a life, live a life, and look incredible all the while

  • Why enjoyable exercise will impact our overall health and wellness
  • How we can get through emotional blocks and start building our fitness
  • The importance of having fun and laughing during exercise
  • Why letting go of our emotional weight will help us let go of physical weight

With the array of health tools at our disposal in today's digital landscape, how can we use wellness technology in a new era to create and maintain better health?

From the apps that track our sleep and movement to the genetic testing that can help us design the ideal eating plan, our world is filled with powerful tools to quantify our lives.

It's fascinating that we can monitor so many aspects of our lifestyle and utilize various tools to accelerate our health and healing, but we also must ask a very important question:

With advances in our digital world, how exactly do we use these new technologies to ensure long-term health and behavior change?
