It’s So Much More Than Just an Attitude
You often hear the phrase, have an attitude of gratitude...and while your attitude and mindset are important factors of how you bring gratitude into your life, what’s more important is your action. In this week’s episode, another mini masterclass in a mindfulness practice, I talk about the power of gratitude, the research that backs it up, and some of my favorite ways to practice being more grateful, not just this week for Thanksgiving, but for all year long.

Get Unstuck; How to Move Through Your Emotions
In a continuation of each episode through the end of December, I’m offering a mini masterclass in the application of mindful tools to help you get unstuck and journey forward to living your best life. In this episode, I talk about how to get through the tunnel of emotions from which you are stuck. It is said that emotions have a cycle, and emotional exhaustion, burnout and feeling overwhelmed doesn’t come from the emotion itself, but from our inability to let the natural cycle of the emotion complete. There is a beginning, middle and end, and we tend to not know how to move ourselves through. Mindfulness - the ability to be present, increase awareness with compassion, acceptance, equanimity, observe what’s arising, respond and not react - are all great ways to begin being with whatever emotion is present. But if that’s not helping, and you’re still feeling stuck, then what? Tune in to hear me go through 7 tangible tools to help you move through your emotions, as outlined in the new book Burnout, by Emily and Amelia Nagoski.

Let it Be Okay, to Not Be Okay
It’s an easy pattern to get stuck in our thoughts and in our emotions...mindfulness can help free us from that old pattern. We are not often taught to manage our emotions...we cling to positive emotions, and resist difficult emotions. So a big question is, How do I manage emotions when they take over? How can I sit in the discomfort without denying, resisting or ignoring what’s arising? Equanimity is a tool to help: it’s radical acceptance.
We often don’t know what to do with our emotions - and yet, the only way out is through. The key is to acknowledge the emotion and then pause to decide what to do with it. But allow yourself to feel what you feel; you don’t have to act on it immediately.

Get Out of Your Head, and Into Your Body
This week’s podcast episode is a continuation of these mini “masterclasses” in mindfulness I’m doing from October through the end of December. Mindfulness is a practice to help get you out of your head (where we tend to overthink, over-rationalize, over-analyze almost everything!) and get into your body where you can not only get into the here and now, but where you can learn to embody your experience and trust your intuition. Our Western culture socializes us to believe logic and reason, and while that’s helpful, it often serves to dismiss the message the body is telling us, often taking us out of alignment and into cognitive dissonance (where you think one thing, but feel another). This episode covers four different areas of body awareness as it relates to mindfulness - mindful movement, sensations, intuition and the mind/body connection.
If you’d like to be in greater community and conversation on how to integrate all aspects of mindfulness into your life, please join my FB group: join my Journey Forward Facebook group.
Awareness sucks. Why? Because with awareness comes responsibility. Awareness is hard - it’s like holding the mirror up to our own selves, and our contributions to the areas of our life that we are struggling with. Without awareness, it’s easy and possible to stay stuck in whatever spiral of reactivity you are currently in. It’s easy to externalize, blame, judge, and not take action towards creating the change that you most need and want in your life.
But yet with awareness, we give ourselves the opportunity for change. With awareness you gain greater clarity and with that insight, you are on the path towards greater peace, happiness and joy. It’s not a direct path - it does take work. But it is the path out from being stuck and ultimately towards the life you want to be living. So...if you don’t want to do any of the work, and you would rather stay in frustration and reaction, then don’t be aware. But if you want to have the freedom from judgments, from anger or depression, from sadness or anxiety, from fear or expectation, then start with awareness - and this episode will show you how.

You Don’t “Do” Mindfulness…
Mindfulness isn’t something you add to your “to-do” list - it’s something you have on your “to-be list.” But before I go more into that - oops! I forgot to share in last week’s episode one of the most common myths I hear about meditation that often stops people before they start. After I cover that final myth, in this week’s episode I delve into the differences between mindfulness and meditation. People often use these words and practices interchangeably, which is inaccurate. And knowing the difference matters; they are related, but are two different things. In a nutshell, think of meditation as going to the gym and mindfulness as being able to have the strength and endurance for whatever you want to do in your life. I go into great detail of what this means and how it looks in your everyday life.
