Episode 18 The power of transforming negative thoughts into positive emotions

The power of transforming negative thoughts into positive emotions

Fiona Brennan is a much-acclaimed clinical hypnotherapist, bestselling author, Ted x speaker and positive psychology advocate. Having experienced the struggles of anxiety first hand, Fiona was driven to find an approach that not only helped her breakthrough her own mental barriers but one which she could then share with others. She is the author of The Positive Habit - 6 steps for transforming negative thoughts into positive emotions. Through her book and online programme, Fiona supports people to reduce their anxiety in order to thrive and flourish.

In this episode you will learn:
• How thoughts are habits too and the importance of reframing your thoughts
• What one of the most sought-after positive mental habits is and steps to take to attain it
• The key habit Fiona uses to maintain her positive emotions

The key question to ask yourself to integrate into your own healthy habits based on this episode is:

• What one small thing can you do now today to start taking care of yourself and your mental health?

I am a massive fan of Fiona’s work – which I’m sure you can tell as I’m positively gushing throughout the conversation. But also because she is someone who really walks her talk and is a huge inspiration in terms of what the power of working on your mental fitness can do. I highly recommend her weekly blog, which gets sent out every Monday morning it’s a fantastically positive way to kick start your week.

I hope you enjoy this episode with Fiona Brennan on the power of transforming negative thoughts into positive emotions.

What people are saying about The Habit Changer programme:

"You were put in my path for a reason. Over the course of our sessions a light bulb went off with me!!! That’s when it all changed for the better."
- Orla

"This programme is different from everything else you’ve ever done. It wasn’t just loads of advice. I liked learning and thinking about my goals – it wasn’t about someone else, it was about me specifically. We all know what we need to do, we need to exercise more and eat better but this was a different approach, it was empowering. Doing the programme was a light bulb moment for me, it became 100% obvious to me where I had failed in the past and what. I should do in the future. I feel so much more in control of my weight now but not only that I feel stronger, more relaxed and happier."
- Cathy

"It’s a different way of thinking a different perspective. All diets fail this isn’t a diet it’s different. It’s a lifestyle change it helps look at the behaviours behind why you eat rather than just solving the symptoms. It shows you if you take small but deliberate actions what the cumulative changes would be . I certainly feel positive I’m heading in the right direction. This isn’t a quick fix its looking at your motivation – changing your mindset and that helps change your behaviours."
