EP50: EXPERIENCING STRESS & ANXIETY? How to Address Your Stress and Open Yourself to Mindfulness & Meditation
I am so excited to bring you my good friend Sabrina Woods to the podcast! She is so special and I truly enjoyed spending time with her to talk about the topic of Mindfulness and Meditation. Let’s Dive In!!
Let’s first dive into understanding what mindfulness is. I feel like it is something we mention and talk about all the time, but have we truly gone deeper into what it is?
Sabrina mentioned that according to the APA, Mindfulness is the movement to moment of one’s awareness of judgment. Meditation works under the umbrella of mindfulness as a whole.
One of the practices of mindfulness is being in the moment and being present. Meditation is the act of removing the stress in the physical, emotional and mental process.
Some examples of practicing meditation is:
- Tia Chi
- Being oneself in sense and focusing
The benefits in creating a space of mindfulness are:
- ability to manage stress
- attention and focus
- regulating emotions
- increasing positive emotions/decreasing negative
