Highlights from our conversation
Practicing HeartMath breathing for 15 minutes a day can help with self regulation. With consistent, daily practice, HeartMath breathing can help you calm yourself quickly and effectively when triggered by stress and anxiety (from patient demands, emails, your boss, etc). Connecting your breathing with a positive memory will help lower stress too.
Did you know that you can measure stress? During our interview, Angela talked about two devices that can measure stress: Inner Balance and The emWave2. Angela is a stress and wellbeing assessment provider.
To create lasting change, Angela generally works with clients for 6 months. Not only does she work with individuals, Angela also works with groups and employers. If you’re interested in working with Angela, contact her through her website: https://angelaorrconsulting.com/.
The healing modalities Angela uses helps some clients sleep better. Others experience weight loss.
Angela shared two success stories. One involved a woman who rediscovered a forgotten passion. The other story featured a woman who overcame GERD.
We talked about becoming breath aware: “chest breathing” vs “belly breathing” and “breath-holding.” Learning how to breathe in a way that connects the mind and body takes time. With practice, it can make a real difference in your life.
My #1 take-away from this episode is that if you are interested in trying non-traditional healing modalities, like meditation, HeartMath breathing, and tapping, you can reach out to Angela Orr for help. She has experience with these healing modalities and really cares about helping you feel better. My #2 take-away from this episode is that you need to check out the 6-minute, guided meditation on Angela’s website: https://angelaorrconsulting.com/. I have done it, and I really like it. If you are new to meditation, and you don’t know what it’s supposed to be like, Angela’s website gives you a FREE sample! Try it today. #3 take-away: I love the messaging on Angela’s website. Check it out! If you are a pharmacist, the messages should resonate. My 4th and final take-away from this episode is the phrase: “Wine O’Clock.” If you resort to alcohol, food, drugs, or other numbing behaviors just to get through the day, maybe HeartMath, meditation, tapping, or other healing modalities could help.
I hope that you feel inspired by how Angela uses her voice to help others. Her advocacy for “pill less” healing modalities and her passion for educating others about them is inspiring. Is there something you have a passion for? Be inspired to use your voice too!
