Mind Right, Navigate the Noise author and Hopkinton resident, Kevin Stacey is offering this workshop to help you achieve the level of peace of mind you deserve.

It is estimated that we have around 50,000 thoughts a day. That is a lot of noise. How you navigate your noise is one of the most important factors in your overall experience in life.

Neuroscience proves that our brains have a negativity bias. Much of what we think about is negative, counterproductive, or not based on reality. Internal fake news is the worst kind since it is mostly personal, negative, and repetitive. Every thought that we entertain with emotion creates a physical reaction, impacts our performance, and grows in our experience.

The problem is not that we have negative thoughts; it is that we believe and pay attention to them. The prerequisite for successful and peaceful life is getting your mind right. Happiness does not come from success; success comes from happiness.

You will learn how to change your relationship to your thoughts as sometimes we need to ignore the noise. Just because you think it, does that mean it is worth analyzing?

At times we need to:

  • Turn up the volume on it to clear the outrageous blanket statements and automatic negative thoughts our brains create.

  • Challenge our inner critic by doing cognitive restructuring- editing and re-framing what you tell yourself so you can counter cognitive distortions, entrenched negativity, and use your mind to train your brain.

  • Let the noise be.

  • Quiet the noise to get our brain still.

Registration is open to adults 18 and over and includes a copy of Mind Right, Navigate the Noise, value $15.95
