Healthy Living from Brenda Lee Reed | Even Temper is Key to Inner Peace

  1. 1. Healthy Living from Brenda Lee Reed |Even Temper is Key to Inner PeaceEmotions are unique, says Brenda Lee Reed, the founder of Genesis Healing Center, but they are ours tocontrol. No one else makes you act or react. Master this and you will master your relationships and yourlife.There are always life situations that are not going to go our way, says certified Life Coach Brenda LeeReed. However, points out Reed, these circumstances are only as positive or negative as we view them.This holds true with personal relationships as well. According to Brenda Lee Reed, even the bestrelationship will have obstacles to overcome but these can be viewed positively. It is difficult at times tosee the best in life, acknowledges Brenda Lee Reed, but with the right mindset there are no problemsthat cannot be overcome.According to Brenda Lee Reed, we are social creatures and we require human connections. Theseconnections are not always smooth and sometimes cause stress and anxiety. Taking a moment to seethe big picture, notes Reed, it is possible to harness a quality known as equanimity. So, what isequanimity? Brenda Lee Reed defines it as the ability to maintain an even temper and a stablecomposure in a difficult situation. Having this ability is important since keeping our cool and notswinging toward any certain emotion will allow us to really appreciate the situation for what it is andmake it possible to view it from all angles.Brenda Lee Reed points out that taking a pragmatic approach to an argument, for example, allows anindividual to remain calm and peaceful. It offers the clarity to see why an opponent’s opinion is sodifferent than ours. Brenda Lee Reed believes that this allows for a learning opportunity; we never knowwhat wisdom we will encounter when we quit blocking things out with fear, anger, anxiety, or obstinacy.Not surprisingly, keeping an emotional calm amplifies our ability to feel empathy, which can help bringan end to the conflict, adds Brenda Lee Reed.Having openness to our experiences is vital to having balance in our lives, believes Brenda Lee Reed.Keep things simple. Brenda Lee Reed points out that Robert Fulgum’s book, All I Really Need to Know ILearned in Kindergarten is one of the best examples of how to achieve equanimity. In this succinct guideto life, Fulgum makes observations such as “Don’t take things that are not yours,” and “Say you are sorrywhen you hurt someone.” According to Brenda Lee Reed, behaviors like these lead to equanimity.So, remember: You control how you view everything in your life. No one makes you feel a certain wayand no one forces you to agree with them 100% of the time. And, that’s ok, concludes Brenda Lee Reed.Brenda Lee Reed is the founder of Genesis Healing Center, a holistic healing center near Nashville,Tennessee.
