I had the pleasure of joining the host of the Healthy U podcast Alan Eisenberg to chat about how body language affects our well-being and how to use courageous, conscious communication to help yourself and others. Listen in on iTunes.
Here’s Alan’s introduction of me for our interview:
“Sharon Sayler has been affectionately dubbed ‘the ‘Difficult People Whisperer,’ for she teaches courageous, conscious communication skills and we’ll ask her about body language as she is one for Body Language according to GlobalGurus.com.
She is a published author of 7 books, a perennial favorite is What Your Body Says and How to Master the Message and if that’s not enough, she’s the host of The Autoimmune Hour on Life Interrupted Radio and her first children’s book Pinky Chenille and the Rainbow Hunters launched last week and became an international bestseller on Amazon already.”
0:03:36.4 To start Alan asked Sharon to talk about her new book which was just recently launched last week and became an international bestseller on Amazon already ─ Pinky Chenille and the Rainbow Hunters, a children’s book about the colors of the rainbow getting mad at each other and how they became friends again to make the world a colorful place to live in.
Sharon said she wrote it because she thinks that communication around difficult things should start early in life.
0:13:17.5 At this point, they begin a lengthy conversation about body language ─ how our body language manifests in the physical health in so many ways and what we do with our body affects what we feel and how we think.
0:24:19.6 After the commercial break, they delved into courageous conscious communication and how it plays in with the body language theory ─ how the way people talk, feel, and think about themselves manifest in their body through physical symptoms or movements.
They talked about getting “stuck on” and they shared tips on how to feel better and become a better person like breathing exercises and talking to yourself in the third person like you’re your own internal therapist ─ and gratitude.
Of equal importance, “how we communicate with ourselves is also how we’re going to communicate outwardly.” As Sharon put it earlier, we should always think of something to be grateful for because “if you don’t tell your mind that, your mind will be happy to tell you all the other things.”
