Dial a Trusted Friend

The most simple and effective mechanism available to human beingsā€¦ The voice and support of a trusted friend.

Being able to speak the problem out loud, and even vent with someone outside of the workplace (not a family member) helps to create a space for insights about the problem situation to occur. And when that space opens, possibilities and alternative become more clear.

A good friend will often not give advice, but just listen and reflect your best qualities or latest life and personal change intentions back at you as reminders of how the situation is triggering an old habit that you are trying to break, or even to enable you to see the perspective of the situation.

This is not a text conversation but real analog human interaction.
