This Week’s Episode:
James Ochoa returns to the podcast on this episode. James is a licensed professional counselor and the author of Focused Forward: Navigating the Storms of Adult ADHD. He is the founder and Director of the Life Empowerment Center in Austin, Texas. James offers action-focused counseling and executive coaching to help his clients discover ways to empower themselves in all areas of life. His passion is treating the emotional distress of ADHD so clients can build their internal worlds using their imagination to manage their attention challenges.
In this conversation, you will hear James talk about emotional regulation. He discusses the concept of emotional distress syndrome and the stress model, which involves distress and eu stress. James shares how micro-meditations in the middle of the day create the activation of the kinesthetic muscle and how that activity helps keep us in balance. He shares how slowing down actions by 25% at any given moment puts the mind in a state of pause and contemplation. You will hear helpful strategies that are customizable and easy to implement.
