    Mindfulness and Recovery

    Mindfulness and Recovery

    You are not alone if you’re feeling more stressed out and using unhealthy means to cope. Four months into the pandemic may find you Netflix binging, stress eating, or reaching for that extra glass of wine more than you would like. Or you may be struggling with addiction and/or working hard to maintain recovery in the midst of increased pandemic stress. In this episode Yael speaks with Dr. Rebecca Williams, a psychologist and co-author of The Gift of Recovery: 52 Mindful Ways to Live Joyfully Beyond Addiction and The Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction. Her approach offers strategies for managing the big emotions we’re feeling now and concrete strategies to build the neural pathways in our brains to pivot toward wellness and healing (rather than of unhealthy coping mechanisms/problematic addictive behaviors) in the face of stress. 



    Listen and Learn:



    * What is addiction?* Why mindfulness is key for those struggling with addiction* Neuroplasticity’s role in healing and ways to cultivate it * Why our feelings don’t have to change for us to be ok* Teasing apart cravings from commands* Tips for folks with a hard time getting in touch with their values* The relationship between loss and addiction* Tips for individuals who love someone struggling with addiction
