    245 Don't live inside your mind - mindfulness for rumination, overthinking and obsessing

    What can we do when our mind keeps returning to a topic, maybe something that we’re worried about, trying to analyse it but never getting anywhere, only causing us suffering?

Natalie Nourigat ,

Thank you

I love this podcast! Sean has such a soothing voice and he reframes things in practical, helpful ways. I’ve felt less anxious since becoming a regular listener, and that’s a big win.

Yippee!

Yippee is my immediate reaction when Shaun weekly releases a new Mindfulness for Beginners podcast. They are relevant, intelligent, humorous and immensely helpful. There are no other mindfulness podcasts out there today that are as well done, genuine and helpful as Shaun’s. Thank you!

Love

Always helping me slow down, pause, and center myself. Excellent work ❤️
