Jane has authored over 20 articles and just published a book, Everything is Perfect, Just Not ME!
So much of life feels out of control. We search for stress relief outside of ourselves and it doesn’t last. Life happens. How we choose to respond to it creates or alleviates much of our stress.
Dr. Jane teaches how to use their thoughts and feelings to lower their stress instead of being the source of their stress. Sharing simple tools to use everyday that give them the power to create more peace and calm in their life.
This topic is for anyone that never feels quite good enough—people who have done a lot of self-help work, but are still looking for that thing that will finally help them love themselves.
We have collectively learned ways to become better people that actually make us feel bad as we strive to improve. Many of us cannot handle compliments because we think we should have done better.
Brene Brown has made the public aware of the idea that imperfection is okay. Dr. Jane provides tools that will empower listeners to bring Brene’s radical idea that we can be imperfect AND okay into their daily life.
This conversation will give you specific tools that actually work to change their brain to increase self-acceptance and kindness.
Some great takeaways from Jane:
Don't be too hard on yourself
Learn to accept yourself as you are
Look into each moment
The past predicts the future
There's no freedom in the box
Be more of yourself
Our ego is afraid of anything new
