    Counteract Resentment with Gratitude with Barry Boyce

    Counteract Resentment with Gratitude with Barry Boyce

    One of the biggest obstacles to gratitude is resentment, says Barry Boyce, Mindful’s founding editor. From time to time, we need to undercut our own perspective and see things from the other side—maybe even from all sides. Here, Barry shares a gratitude practice to help us stop clinging to our ideas of what we want, and to work with the feelings that come up when we feel resistant to the way things are.

Love these short meditations

I love how short but satisfying these meditations are. Yes the intro is a bit long but I use that time to practice my 4-7-8 breathing while I get into the right headspace before the meditation begins. These are free! If you don’t want the sell you will need to buy

Paula107 ,

Too much intro

The meditations are mostly wonderful. However, the intro by the editor is too long. I want the meditation, not the sell. Maybe she could move the overview to the end.

Carscadden Family ,

Excellent!

Quick, go to meditations. I enjoy the variety and the 12 minute concept
