What is your opinion about how life coaches counsel clients?
Well, most of them don’t give advice in the manner that the average client would think, especially the ones who are trying to do whatever they can to reduce stress. And that would be a lot better than what’s on TV. A lot of these people don’t give advice about stress and emotional processing.
[I am] not in any way attempting to be a therapist. It just is what it is. As long as there are things you cannot change, then what’s the point in getting coaching?
That’s why I feel this is a bad business move. Because you get people telling you things you can’t change that actually help create the stressful environment. In my opinion, you need stress reduction to reduce stress, because it helps the brain and is the biggest contributing factor for all these diseases and problems in general.
Are there any people in specific that you find are overly obsessed with their stress?
Yes. Some of it just comes from personal desire that is really unhealthy.
But I also think that one way to reduce anxiety is not to become overly obsessed. It is more about identifying the triggers, identifying the triggers and changing the behaviors surrounding those triggers so you become more relaxed and less anxious.
I believe if you’re not being anxious, you should be relaxing. The anxiety itself doesn’t matter. It’s your environment that does [really] matter. If you’re going through anxiety and you’re in a noisy environment, that does make your brain more susceptible to anxiety. That doesn’t mean you can’t be in a quiet environment. And it doesn’t mean that if you’re in the quiet environment that you have nothing to worry about. It just means that your brain is more susceptible.
The important thing is to identify when you’re more vulnerable. And I believe the key is to become more relaxed with the environment.
For example, I’ve had someone say to me that they were really anxious in the past and they would do a lot of studying at school. But the school just felt too demanding. I actually said to them, “You know, if you want to study, go to classes.”
Now I don’t feel like that is possible. I’d have to go to work every day. If it’s not a stressful situation, then I’m not going to. But if there’s a stressful situation, I’d rather think of some ways that I can stay positive. So it
