Testimonial about Unlocking the Code to Human Resiliency

“The book ‘Unlocking the Code to Human Resiliency’ by Dr. Aubrey has changed my professional and personal life by instilling in me self-care… nurturing myself in many ways, including using the ‘wet noodle technique’ – letting all my muscles go while also letting all air release from my body to leave oneself loose (like a deflating balloon!) – then ‘dropping’ my body. In any hectic moment, after two months of mindfully practicing this technique, I no longer respond in the same way to hectic and trying situations. I used to argue, fight, and allow myself to feel overwhelmed in response to adverse situations. Adopting the techniques advised in this book allowed me to maintain my professional efforts while caring for myself and others. Self-care taught me to approach situations with more kindness toward all aspects of my life. I learned that knowledge transfer goes both ways, so I don’t feel indebted or ‘less than’ just because I choose to ask for help in unfamiliar situations. I even used repetition and positive self-talk, along with using mindfulness, when I ate and lost 30 lbs. Dr Aubrey writes that acute relaxation allows one to be intentional and maintain integrity, instead of becoming ‘slapdash’ disorganized and acting in a way that betrays one’s principles. Dr. Aubrey talks about reducing our threat response and using self-regulation to release tension in our bodies, and returning attention to focus. This is exactly what works.”
