We know that changing habits or behaviors is not an easy task. I hope that through the posts or videos that you will find in this section, you will find the bases that make us maintain these dysfunctional behaviors or habits in our lives. Knowing the root of where they come from will allow you, first to understand their origin and second to make the decision to challenge them in order to solve future situations.

    Although it sounds strange, schedule the discussions! When it comes to sensitive topics, it can be helpful to set aside time (weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly) to discuss them. It seeks a time free from stress about work, money, or anything else to consolidate arguments into a single episode instead of having them bleed into the relationships throughout the week. Keeping the "fights" or "discussions" on the agenda will allow time and space for reflection and thus seek better arguments so that you can come into the "appointment" of the "discussion" more thoughtfully and respectfully, open to saying and listening to the needs each. If you can't reach a consensus, you can always schedule another meeting for later, which will give you time to consider the ideas proposed to solve the situation in more depth.

Therefore, and in order to continue creating those good moments that can lead you to improve your relationships, I want to give you this technique so that you can use it in those moments when you feel that your reactions are not the most appropriate and can hurt feelings and consequently damaging or ending ties of years with friends and/or family members. I want to thank you for following and giving your "likes" and opinions to the posts of bEmotion through the website, Instagram and Facebook.

    " #ihavetheblues " is a common idiom we use to express our feelings of #sadness . It is good to express our #emotions , but it is better to do something about them besides feeling them. There are common, practical and inexpensive ways to do it. For example, going out,#talking to someone and #takingcareofyourself ,among others, are some ways to do it. I know that feeling "blue" is a typical type of emotion during #winter , but you have the power to choose how to change that. Let's do it, stay in action. If you still feel like you "got the blue," I can help. Contact me https://bemotion-s.com/.

    How do you think that physics, mathematics and equations are related to productivity or the way of being functional in our lives? James Clear, the author of Atomic Habits, found a way to do this using Newton's three laws of motion. Based on theories and physical equations, James analyzes what causes us to stagnate and not progress in reaching our goals. Applying Newton's laws of motion in our behaviors we will be able to know the variables that lead us to be unproductive. And we already know that making "reflective stops" in our lives leads us to be able to identify what is not right in order to focus all our effort on manipulating and changing those things that we are not doing well, as we do in a mathematical equation. bEmotion

    How many times have we felt dejected by our own emotions? How often do we let them come, beat us to the point of exhaustion, and do we not challenge them? In this new reality in which we live due to the pandemic, it becomes more relevant to question ourselves with reflective questions that lead us to analyze the origin of our emotions. In this short video, I leave you with a practical and effective way to do it. Whenever you find a feeling that is not helping you move forward, overcome or close chapters in your life, challenge it with questions that help you find evidence that confirms or not that emotion. I invite you to practice it and tell me the results you found.

    First Law of Motion: An object at tends to stay at rest, and an object in motion continues in motion unless a force acts on it and stops it. If you are currently in a state of inaction with respect to an #activity or task to be #performed , you will tend to remain inactive unless an internal or external force stimulates you to move. We tend to leave things intact, it is a fundamental law of the universe. So, as Newton says, if we seek the forces to act and move, we will continue to move. States of action lead us to continue acting. We know, if we are doing something to achieve our goals, this law states that we will tend to keep working to achieve them and be #moreproductive I agree with you, the most critical element is #gettingstarted. We have to find a way to #getmoving . Once we get the ball rolling, it will be infinitely easier to keep going until the task is done.

    Prioritizing your relationship over self-interest will lead you to lower your guard. In a relationship, we will always find different points of view. I invite you to see the differences as an instrument to build and not to destroy. If the relationship is the most important thing for you, discussions based on who is right (ego vs ego), you will indeed have a winner in most cases, but there will always be a big loser: "your relationship."

    Many times we have felt that we work and work strenuously to achieve a goal but, in the end, the results are not what we expected. This is explained in Newton's Second Law of motion which tells how a force affects the speed at which an object moves. (look at the video). Applying this law in our day-to-day, we should not only pay attention to how much work we are doing but also where we are applying that work (direction). What is the use of making an effort, if I don't focus all that effort in one direction? I must begin to be aware of where that effort is going. Where we direct our efforts is as important as how much effort we exert. Temptations, distractions, and a lack of organization and planning scatter our energy and work in different directions. If we want to optimize our productivity, we must avoid dispersing our forces.
