How to Build Resilience to Survive Difficult Phase in Life?

Difficult times are unavoidable in life, nobody wants them but they are good teachers in life. Sometimes we do not see that tough time/failure/ layoff is making a person strong rather has making him/her devastated. 
Why is it that only a few people come out of tough times effectively, whereas some suffer a prolonged demoralized state and cannot ever recover from it?
For example two middle-aged persons lost their job under a layoff process in their company, both with similar family and financial background, while one felt humiliated, lost confidence and therefore had difficulty finding a new job, the other analysed the situation, spent time identifying his strengths, saw it as an opportunity for growth and found himself a senior manager’s role in a new company.
Today, Counsellor Shivani Misri Sadhoo shares important life skills that can help a person to survive a difficult time.

Don’t just be optimism, be resilient too
During bad times being optimistic is essential. In fact, optimism is ref…

How to Respond to Negative People and Negative Comments?

A well-timed witty comment among friends could be termed as good humor but passive-aggressive comments that masks jealousy, hatred or anger beneath the surface constitutes snarky.
Sometimes, critical comments are intended to win professional rivalry and they get coated with compliments like, “you are a good salesman for small market” and so on.  No doubt these comments affect most of us, they not only hurt but make us angry as well.
In fact, a study by Michigan State University found that individuals who were subjected to snarky behavior, like sarcasm and put-downs, wasted their mental energy trying to interpret the individual’s intentions. They grew mentally fatigued and had greater difficulty managing their impulses and regulating their emotions. Consequently, they were more likely to lash out because they lacked the energy to suppress their impatience.
Unfortunately, one snarky individual can lead to mass incivility, if you’re not careful. But the good news is, it is possible to stay …

How To Deal With Sexual Abuse? Radio Mirchi Interview with Counsellor Shivani ...

How To Deal With Sexual Abuse?  Radio Mirchi Interview with Counsellor Shivani Misri SadhooIn India, it is difficult to come out as a survivor of sexual abuse in a society where blaming the victim is the norm.
In this light, child sexual abuse is an issue which is usually not paid much attention to. It is appalling to see that in a report by Ministry of Women and Child Development in India, 53% of children are victims of child sexual abuse in India. Globally speaking, India ranks second in terms of the highest rate of child sexual abuse. What is more worrying is the fact that mostly child sexual abuse is incestuous in nature which means that it is committed by a person who is a family member and has an easy access to the child.
In a Radio Mirchi interview Counsellor Shivani Misri Sadhoo shares how to deal with sexual abuse.

Unlocking Your Power To Be Happy By Overcoming Fear of Vulnerability

As kids we were open and free, we could share all of ourselves with others. When we grew up, we learn that the world can be a very painful place. We learn that not everyone is on our side, and not all situations are going to go our way. Over time, then, we also learn to protect ourselves. We build walls around our hearts, we convince ourselves that we never really loved that person who hurt us anyway, and we become practiced in the art of denial. Perhaps many among of us may agree that this is a natural process of growing up. But Counsellor Shivani Misri Sadhoo says the otherwise. Counsellor Shivani says as an adult our efforts to put boundaries around our hearts to protect us from feeling pain, discomfort, and hurt also deprive us of joy, passion along with love because the love and joy requires a free heart to prosper to its full growth.
With a protected heart you may laugh, you may feel happy but the feeling of “something is missing, something is empty”, will start to live within you.…

How to Help Your Child to Increase His/Hers Concentration Power?

The power to focus is one of the key determinants of our educational and professional success. Good focus or concentration capacity enables us to learn better and to gain mastery on any subject or task. So how as a parent, you can help your child to develop a strong concentration level?
Counsellor Shivani Misri Sadhoo says parents should first check certain conditions in their child that could affect his/her concentration power, like: 

–  A child may fail to concentrate when he/she is worried or scared about something (it can be caused due to a bully in school, abuse in neighbour or due to parent’s bad relationship). Under the bully scenario, parents should immediately report the matter to the school and meet the teachers and if the problem persists (i.e. the child still continues to suffer from anxiety and worry) consult a counsellor immediately. In case of an abuse, parents should report the matter to the authority and get the child counselled by an expert.
–   A child may fail to conc…

How Self-Compassion Makes Us Stronger, Happier, and More Generous?

The world sees compassion as a commendable quality; it’s a referred to an amalgam of many good qualities like kindness, benevolence, understanding, empathy, sympathy, and fellow-feeling, along with an impulse to help other living creatures, human or animal. But many of us forget that compassion is required not only for others but for ourselves too.
Counsellor Shivani Misri Sadhoo says social and psychological researchers across the world have demonstrated that relating to ourselves in a kind, friendly manner isessential for our emotional well-being. Not only does it safeguard us from depression, anxiety, and stress---it also engenders a happier and more hopeful approach to life. More pointedly, research proves false many of the common myths about self-compassion that keep us trapped in the prison of relentless self-criticism.
Myth: Self-Compassion is a form of Self-Pity
One of the biggest myths about self-compassion is that many mistakes it with feeling sorry for yourself. It is not, s…
