Publisher's Summary

From a world-renowned psychologist, a simple and effective method for managing your most difficult feelings and building the emotional strength you need to create the life of your dreams.

Sadness, shame, helplessness, anger, embarrassment, disappointment, frustration, and vulnerability. In 30 years as a practicing psychologist, Dr. Joan Rosenberg has found that what most often blocks people from success and feeling capable in life is the inability to experience, move through, and handle these eight unpleasant feelings. Knowing how to deal with intense, overwhelming, or uncomfortable feelings is essential to building confidence, emotional strength, and resilience. Yet when we distract or disconnect from these feelings, we move away from confidence, health, and our desired pursuits, ultimately undermining our ability to fully realize our ambitions.

Neuroscientists suggest that the biological lifespan of a feeling, often known first through bodily sensations, lasts approximately 90 seconds. Dr. Rosenberg teaches listeners to be aware, consciously lean into, and balance these unpleasant emotions by riding one or more 90-second waves of the bodily sensations. By staying present to these eight feelings, we cultivate the confidence that we can handle life's challenges and the deep sense we can pursue whatever we want.

Combining more than three decades of clinical experience with aspects of clinical psychology, mindfulness, and neuroscience research, 90 Seconds to a Life You Love is a strategic and practical guide on building core emotional strength, reducing anxiety, and developing the confidence you need to create a life of your design - a life you love.

how to handle emotions For Real

This book is so awesome! It is a real down to earth way of approaching difficult emotions and being able to manage the discomfort. Few people talk about the discomfort of difficult emotions and how to really handle them. Dr. Joan does this with such style. AND she explains how to allow those vulnerable moments in order to help yourself grow. Beautifully done!!!

Much needed

In this book, among many other important topics, Dr Rosenberg always relates back to addressing emotions that we all are inclined to repress or run away from. This is not something you are taught as a child—unless your caregivers or teachers have mastered jt—but I believe it is something every person should learn. The tools and exercises she lays out are practical and enlightening and I believe we could ALL benefit from what she teaches in this book.

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT...

The information was second to none.
Her voice was very easy to listen to.
It was so easy to use.
I have to live on Social Security so I only signed up for the one month to listen to this book.
I bought the book and love it! But, I can't afford to keep listening even at half price for a
short period.

It will be wonderful for ones who can afford it no matter the book they want to listen to! : )

Read it Again & Again

Loved it! I finished listening then took Dr. Rosenberg’s advice and began listening to it again. This book is a must listen to creating a strategic approach to 90 Seconds to a Life You Love. As told by a clinical psychologist, educator, and neuroscience researcher; the book is expertly crafted and brutally honest when managing through emotions such as sadness, shame, helplessness, anger, embarrassment, disappointment, frustration, and vulnerability.

This book should be on your annual listening to list!

To the point

Dr. Rosenberg really gets into the meat and bolts from the get go. She does so in a way we can all understand. Her delivery is of the uttermost honesty, and the knowledge she shares is incredibly potent. Listening through, I highly recommend you take notes, and dive into the material, it can change your life.
