    Effect on Emotions
    More mindfulness has allowed me to press the pause button and create space for myself between the stimulus and the response.
    Thoughts on Breathing
    I use a breathing technique to control my stutter. On the other hand, I also practice different types of breathwork whether it is Wim Hof or conscious, connected breathing. In fact, I'll have to connect you with John Mensa who was a fantastic breathwork teacher. And, of course, traditional mindfulness meditation also incorporates a lot of mindful breathing.

    Bullying Story
    I wish mindfulness had been taught when I was in school. It would have made an enormous difference because I've lost count of the number of times I would go back home to my room, just feeling absolutely awful about what had happened at school. I felt belittled and I felt so small.
    So the way that mindfulness would have had a tremendous impact is by reminding me that I am not the feelings I'm having. I'm not the thoughts that I'm having. The mere fact that these are entities that I am having implies separation between the ‘I', and what is being felt and being experienced. Having that healthy ability to observe rather than identify and react would indeed have allowed me to feel what I needed to feel in a healthier way, as opposed to going for avoidance as my MO.

    Thoughts on Breathing
    I noticed if I start feeling anxious or something scares me, I'll take four breaths in and four breaths out. The other thing that helps me is to take a breath in and then exhale, as long as I can.

    Bullying Story
    I remember being bullied all through being a kid and I think part of it is because of my curly hair. That was the style then I had freckles I had these ugly glasses; just things that were not helping me be at my best.
    I remember kids saying mean things about my brother's name, Jack. So, Jack and Jill; I heard all kinds of versions of the nursery rhyme.
    I had a definite incident of inappropriate sexual contact. And that was really upsetting, where I felt like I couldn't even go to school like I'd be looked at.
    I had my share of feeling bullied, feeling insecure, feeling threatened. I think in my life, there have been many moments of feeling bullied, feeling insecure, feeling unsafe, feeling taunted, feeling teased, which might be slightly different than being taunted.
    The point is, part of children's messiness is a certain meanness. Now, here's my hope and excitement for the future and the present; I believe fully that children now are much more conscious and more mindful.

    Releasing Dis-ease With Awareness; Ann Hince

    Releasing Dis-ease With Awareness; Ann Hince

    Ann Hince is a professional speaker, author & spiritual teacher. Ann can show the way from Inner Turmoil to Inner Peace. In the process, as dis-ease is released, our bodies can move more into alignment.When Ann was 19, she woke one morning to find her mother dead in her bathroom. Twenty years later, the tears from that trauma were still just under the surface. Ann found a simple technique that helped her release these emotions – but she went further and can now put her awareness inside her body – and has changed the bone structure of her skull and grown ½ an inch at age 55. Ann has found that seeking out our truth, what we truly feel, and accepting those feelings, is the key to inner peace.

    Gary Craig

    Effect on Emotions
    I now notice my emotions and don't get caught in them. Most of us get caught up in our emotions. Now I can stand back and say, okay, okay, look at me; I'm getting frustrated, I'm getting angry, or I can feel that physical aspect of the emotion deep inside. So it's very different than what it used to be.
    Thoughts on Breathing
    I wouldn't call them techniques, more tools, breathe breath is definitely part of what happens along this journey. With feeling the feelings, they will hold my breath, while I'm feeling that tension, because I believe it's kind of been stored in that part of the breath where I can feel the tension. And when it releases, there is a huge intake of breath, which I believe is almost like the soul seating a little bit further into the body and becoming a little bit more grounded. And I do use it.
    That's another thing I do if I find tension inside and the connective tissue which is too tight; I can't release it with focused attention. Then I will blow through it. They will blow slowly through my mouth, imagining that I'm blowing through that tension in the connective tissue and it will help it release.

    Bullying Story
    The boy that was bullying me, I just hate what he did. I just hate it. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it, I would have got that energy out of me so that I became peaceful inside. Because I believe we're a signal.
    So if I had held that energy inside of me, that frustration, that annoyance, that disgust with them; that's part of my signal. And I would have attracted again, and again and again. And I did, it went on for two years. And if I had brought myself back to peace each night, then I believe over time, the bullying would have stopped because I would have been a different signal.

    Effect on Emotions
    Mindfulness has definitely helped me keep a broad perspective and grace for all kinds of people and all kinds of ways of thinking. Because when you are so wrapped up in yourself, it's hard to live outside of that bubble. But when you can take the time to be mindful, you open yourself up to other points of view.
    Thoughts on Breathing
    I have to live every day to breathe. I think, especially with the background I have, the clients that I care for something like breathing, and grounding techniques, something that can be implemented wherever we are. We don't have to have special tools or a tool belt to be able to implement an effective coping strategy and breathing we carry with us everywhere we go.
    And so whether it's a stressful situation or a financial decision I'm making in the store, when I need to be present in the moment, I ground myself. Oftentimes, deep breathing techniques are what I go to at that moment to help gain clarity.

    Bullying Story
    I think as the frugality podcast in the personal finance world, we can definitely get picked on because it's much sexier to talk about investing and side hustling and entrepreneurship. And many people dump on frugality, because of its correlation to a scarcity mindset.
    I definitely like my life's work and my passion for helping bullied people. But we have to understand that everybody is in their own place and on their own journey. You have to realize that frugality is for everyone, but you have to be in a place for it.

    Effect on Emotions
    I have choices every single day that I get to make, in better ways, because I get present. Am I ever triggered? But far less often, and in far less, like harmful, self-harmful, and otherwise harmful ways in the world?
    Thoughts on Breathing
    Let's all just take a breath together. What difference does it make in our lives in the world? It can change everything. When I've been in an argument with my partner, one thing that he's done that has been profound is he'll just stop and open his palms toward me and say, I just love you. And it's hard to scream into that void of love and calm and breath.

    Bullying Story
    The instance that I remember so vividly of being bullied as a child was riding the bus home, and there was an older boy who just always was alone. And he would like to throw things at those of us who were younger and kind of push us over and tell us to get out of the seat, that that was his seat. And he lived out close to me. So we would drop him off first and then head to my house. And one day, like, I could just see that he was sad.
    And I was like,  are you okay? And not, not from a place of being in his face, but just like, I'm concerned about you. Are you okay? And he stopped. And he never bullied anybody on that bus. Again. He didn't say a word.
    That's the power and I learned really young that, that if we can be compassionate, does it always work? No. But does it work? A lot of times, if somebody doesn't feel that they're like onstage or trying to save face, or, you know, that kind of thing, if we can just have that moment of connection, it makes us both human. It lets that person know that we see them.

    The Mindfulness Of Learning

    The Mindfulness Of Learning

    Learning and mindfulness are closely related. Some of the benefits of learning new skills and new ideas are:  it gives you motivation, helps beat boredom, boosts confidence, keeps you healthy, helps you be flexible, can benefit others, and learning can boost your happiness levels.Listen & Subscribe on:
    iTunes / Stitcher / Podbean / Overcast / Spotify
    Here are 7 Ways Learning New Skills or New Concepts Can Help You:
    1/ Learning Feels Good
    Wordle and similar puzzles have become incredibly popular. This is because we enjoy learning and love the rush of adrenaline when we succeed at solving a puzzle or accomplishing a challenging task. Allow yourself to enjoy these kinds of winning experiences. The good feeling can be shared when we get together and play games with family and friends. There are more and more games being created every year, and they can help us satisfy a particular human need. Three new games came into our home this Christmas, and every one of them contributed to this feeling of pleasure as I learned how to play them with my family and friends.
    2/ Creates New Neuropathways
    When you are learning something new, does it feel like your brain is using extra resources? Do you feel as though your brain is using more energy than normal? That feeling is what results from new neuropathways being carved out in your brain. We’ve been hearing about this concept for quite a while now, and you can test it out for yourself by learning a new skill, a game, or solving challenging puzzles. Pay particular attention to how your brain feels as you are learning this new material. I think you’ll agree, it’s important to give your brain new challenges every day.
    3/ A New Perspective On Life
    When I was 37 years old, I decided I wanted to learn downhill skiing. This was a skill I had always admired, and now I was determined to be a downhill skier myself. Not only was this an exciting venture, but it definitely gave me a new perspective on life. Standing at the top of a long, steep hill, and looking down at the valley where I would be skiing, gave me a completely new perspective on life. As I became better at skiing, I was aware that I began to feel different about my life. I felt more confident and more accomplished. This feeling drifted over to other aspects of my life as well. I was having more fun and had more to look forward to as I planned future skiing trips and even short skiing adventures.
    4/ Staves Off Senility
    I believe that keeping your mind active and robust is one way to help stave off senility. My great-grandmother and my grandfather both lived well into their 90s, and I can remember my grandfather always making an effort to learn new things, he had a great sense of humor and was always conversing with nurses, support workers, and visitors after he moved to a nursing home. I frequently played favorite songs for him on my accordion, and he was always eager to learn all about what was happening in my life. He was curious and was constantly learning new things.
    5/ Creates A Winning Mindset
    Being a lifetime learner can help you live with a winning mindset. Everything is perspective. Some people find it easy to focus on the negative and be immersed in a lot of bad news. It’s one thing to be a realist and be aware of what’s happening in the world, but when you focus too much on the negative, it can take over your outlook. Having a doomsday outlook doesn’t feel good for most of us. I’d prefer to choose to learn new skills and fresh ideas every day because I believe that contributes to a winning mindset.
    6/ Helps Combat Depression
    If you are suffering from depression, please see a professional. My mention of depression here is not referring to clinical depression, but instead that state where you feel down, discouraged, and you generally lack motivation. For me, there is nothing better than setting out to learn a new skill when I’m feeling down. Sometimes I have to give myself a huge push to make it happen, but once
