Why I'm Loving the Wheel Of Awareness Practice by Dr. Dan Siegel
The Wheel of Awareness practice was created by Dr. Dan Siegel to increase integration in the brain. In the last 10 days I decided to do this practice as part of a new morning routine I'm testing to see if I can prevent some of the symptoms from seasonal depression, now the days are getting shorter and we're heading into winter here in Montreal. I'm happy to report that the benefits of this guided visualization GREATLY outweigh the costs of having to wake up earlier and sit down for 30 minutes with my mind and body.

3 Lessons From Not Podcasting In 3 Months
After a few months of taking things easy and going quiet, I’m happy to share a new podcast episode where I talk all about the three lessons from going quiet for a few months.
In this episode, I share my experiences with:
When slowing down seems harder than quitting (and my hypothesis of why that is)
What I learned from sitting with the shame of “not producing enough”.
What to do if your “cognitive tools” (like journaling or repeating affirmations) aren’t working as well as they have in the past
Why I have been feeling ambivalent towards the world of personal development in general
I also share two exciting events that I’m participating on this week. For all the information and show notes, visit: https://soniaortiz.com/38
