Sid Efromovich, who has a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP), discusses his Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and his unbelievable journey in becoming a runner.
We discussed the following:
- His extreme luck in being diagnosed with CRPS when he did
- His mindset during this journey of living with CRPS
- Why he started running
- A different way to look at increasing your mileage
- Why to wear a race shirt for a race that you didn’t run
- His love of audiobooks
- Running in Madrid, Venice, Florence, and Tel Aviv
- How self-acceptance leads to self-compassion and then to self-care—because self-care is health care
In this episode, Sid and I talk a lot about mindset and positive psychology—both subjects of great interest to us. If you’re looking to take a holistic view of your life, to examine how perhaps running is just one component of it, and to explore the possibility of coaching, please reach out to me. Right now I have a few spots left in my schedule. The coaching that I do is grounded in evidenced-based, scientifically proven tools and strategies to help people focus on making some shifts in their lives.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll set up a time to talk to see if we’re a good fit.
