Welcome to today’s PEP Talk – Curiosity Versus Fear – Episode #8.   When you hear a perspective that is different from your viewpoint, how do you feel? What do you do? 

What if the opinion is in direct opposition to yours? Do you feel defensive, or are you curious as to why the person has the outlook they have? Do you ask questions wanting to glean a better understanding?

In today’s PEP Talk – Curiosity Versus Fear – Episode #8, I discuss how fear can rule us, creating a “reaction” when we hear a viewpoint that differs from our own. I also offer an alternative approach which may assist in decreasing your level of stress when you hear/read something that you do not agree with.

I referenced my PEP Talk – More Curious Than Afraid.  I also mentioned how people could focus on the need to be right, which I discuss in more detail in my PEP Talk – I Am Right.  If you missed the original airings, or you simply want to re-watch them, please feel free. 

Please take a few minutes to listen to today’s PEP Talk – Curiosity Versus Fear – Episode #8, and I encourage you to do one thing today purposefully to attain true PEP for life.

Welcome to today’s PEP Talk – Redirection Versus Distraction – Episode #7. I want to apologize for the sound quality of this month’s PEP Talk. When I saved it, the software created a couple of glitches in the recording that were not there prior to saving the recording. There are two sections where words are repeated and/or it sounds as though the track skips. Again, I apologize, and I hope it does not “distract” you from the message.

Are you someone who utilizes distractions to avoid thinking about upsetting events/situations?

In today’s PEP Talk – Redirection Versus Distraction – Episode #7, I discuss the techniques of distraction and redirection. I explain the difference between the two approaches, and I explain why it is important to redirect yourself versus distracting yourself when something comes to your mind that distresses you.

Welcome to today’s PEP Talk – Everything Will Turn Out Ok – Episode #6. I reference Gretchen Rubin’s podcast #215, Throw a Celebratory Party, during this episode. Gretchen and Elizabeth discussed the stumbling block of struggling to enjoy the moment because one is worrying about the next moment.

During the PEP Talk, I discuss a belief system (continuing with the mindset theme from the last 3 PEP Talks) which asks you to believe that everything will work out for your better good – a knowing that everything will turn out ok. It may not turn out as you had hoped it would; however, it will work out in a way that will serve you.

Welcome to today’s PEP Talk – Misery is Optional. What do you believe about your current circumstances and your future? Do you believe you will heal from a physical or emotional issue? Do you believe you will get the promotion you have been working to attain?

Or are you someone who believes in worst case scenarios?

Do you believe you will ‘never’ get well? Do you believe you are doomed to work in your current dead-end position?

Our mindset impacts how we feel physically and emotionally. It can also impact the course of our lives.  In this month’s PEP Talk I discuss the power of your mindset- what you believe.  A belief is deeper than a thought – it is something you feel at your core and it has the power to transform your life.

Please take a few minutes to listen to this month’s PEP Talk – Misery is Optional and I encourage you to do one thing today purposefully to attain true PEP for Life!

Welcome to today’s PEP Talk – Listen.  I believe listening is one of the most treasured gifts that we can give to another person. It is free and it is simple to do. Yet, if we are truly honest with ourselves, how often do we genuinely listen to the other person who is talking to us?

When others are talking, it is very common to be lost in our own thoughts about what is going on in our own world or possibly being distracted by the art of multitasking – checking the phone.

When someone feels as though another is truly listening to him/her that person feels heard and feels valued. This is a very validating experience that can lift a person’s spirit and it can positively impact self-worth. This occurs not only for the person who was listened to, this occurs for the person who was listening as well.

I encourage you to be mindful when you are communicating with others. Take note of whether you are sincerely listening or if you are only half listening because you are distracted by something else.

Thank you so much for joining me today and I encourage you to do one thing purposefully (e.g. listen with intention) to attain true Pep For Life.

Veggie Fries

Cook Time

Cook Time
40 min
Ingredients
  1. 2 rutabagas
  2. 2 turnips
  3. 2 sweet potatoes (I prefer Japanese, purple or Hanna- aka white, versus using yams)
  4. 4 carrots
  5. 4 parsnips
  6. A couple of handfuls of organic red palm oil
  7. Sea salt
Instructions
  1. Cut the vegetables into French fry size slices. For the rutabagas, turnips, and sweet potatoes, cut in half and then make slices from the halved pieces. The slices can then be cut in half to make them more like French fries or you can leave them. The carrots and parsnips are already pretty small so simply cut them in the middle so you have two pieces, then from end to end, cut the halved pieces. Cut those pieces, end to end.
  2. Place all the sliced vegetables in a large bowl. With your hand, scoop out a handful of organic red palm oil. With both hands, toss and coat all of the vegetable fries. Feel free to add sea salt at this point.
  3. Once all of the vegetable fries are coated, using multiple cookie sheets, spread all the vegetable fries, single layer, on the cookie sheets.
  4. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes at 375 degrees.
