The Things I Used to do to Sneeze - Monica Cost

The Things I Used to do to Sneeze!: How to Live an Authentic Life

  • by Monica Cost

“The Things I Used to do to Sneeze!: How to Live an Authentic Life", is a self-exploration book on defining your personal truth and living an authentic life; aesthetically, emotionally, spiritually, relationally, financially, professionally and parentally. Using the comparison of Monica’s own love of the sensation of sneezing, to that of “sensations” sought after in life, readers are taken on a journey of self-discovery, beginning with the identification of desires and understanding of personal values, to live the most authentic, purposeful and fulfilled life possible.

Situational Self Talk: How to have better conversations in your head

  • by Monica Cost

Studies continue to show that 85% of our mental chatter is negative. For some reason, we're having trouble taming our negative mental chatter. For example, we spill coffee on ourselves at work and we might say, "it's always something!" Or Sunday night we think, "I hate Mondays!"  Or we fail at something and begin to question whether or not we are adequate. Whether the conversation in our head is about ourselves or others, the picture ain't pretty. Maybe, we can start painting more positive pictures for our pathways.

I think it's at least worth a try. Where do your thoughts take you when situations arise? What do you say to yourself after you complete an interview for a job, leave a meeting where you don't feel like you got your points across, skipped your time at the gym, ate that piece of cake you said you weren't going to or find out that your child has done something awful?

Life situations that create simple everyday thoughts, often take us down rabbit holes of self-deprecation and spiritual ruin. Situational Self Talk is a remedy for negative thinking. While practice doesn’t make perfect, it certainly yields better. RELEASE FALL 2020. Check back for updates or sign up for my newsletter.
