My Clinic

Moments, a Course on Decreasing Stress

Podcast Summary

In this conversation, we discuss the concept of mindfulness and its benefits. Mindfulness is moment-to-moment non-judgmental awareness and aims to widen the gap between perception and reaction. We explore the seven attitudes of mindfulness, including beginner's mind, non-judging, acceptance, letting go, trust, patience, gratitude, and generosity. We also cover importance of paying attention to the present moment and using intentional breathing to start a transformative process. Mindfulness has shown to benefit many medical problems including anxiety, depression, ptsd, weight gain, diabetes, and even the big one: cardiovascular disease.
