Emotional Agility


One of my absolute favorite books on behavior change is Emotional Agility by Susan David. (I have earmarked just a few pages, lol.)

In this book, Susan talks about the fact that people need challenges in their life – that is where growth happens, but…

Too much challenge will cause a state of overwhelm which makes our brain perceive the challenge as a threat and causes us to retreat. And…

Too little challenge in your life creates stagnation and stagnant places are where things go to die not thrive.


You don’t want to be overwhelmed.
You don’t want to be underwhelmed.
You want to find your WHELM.

I love that!

Your state of whelm is very personal.

I can’t tell you where it is. I do know it is probably somewhere in the space between Grace & Grit. The space between self-love and self-discipline.

We talk all about this in the FREE Healthiest Year Yet Challenge. You can register here. No Monday or New Year required.
