  2. enhancing non-judgmental moment-to-moment awareness Hi All! Here is your weekly dose of "5 Mindful Musings", a brief list of what's helping me live a more mindful life. What Helps Me Be Kind To Myself Compassionate Body Scan Meditation. Kristin Neff guides this powerful meditation to bring kind, caring awareness to sensations in the body, even if it's uncomfortable in the moment. Very helpful for processing emotions, feeling a sense of ease, and also for falling asleep. What I'm Reflecting On 6 Reasons Why Mindfulness Is A Superpower These remind me how I can choose how to relate to any kind of experience, to refrain from judgment, to be with what's uncomfortable, to remember to breathe, to widen or narrow my perspective, to balance doing with being, and remember what's most important. 7 Things To Try When Mindfulness Doesn't Work These remind me that mindfulness alone is not always enough. Humans are complex, so we need a wide range of modalities to heal, grow and thrive. What I Wish My Own Schoolteachers Had Access To Teaching Mindfulness To Empower Adolescents. This is a powerful guide to help school teachers master the essential competencies needed to successfully share mindfulness practices with teens and adolescents. "Wise and revolutionary. These are skilled and caring teachers giving you the real deal. They show how to soothe, inspire, and awaken the teenage spirit." - Jack Kornfield, PhD, bestselling author of A Path with Heart What I'm Exploring 20 Best Mindfulness Meditation Podcasts of 2020. This list from the team at Positive Psychology includes many wonderful mindfulness podcasts I had never heard of. Worth a look. A Quote That I Love "The only reason we don't open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don't feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else's eyes." - Pema Chodron *Subscribe to our YouTube Channel for exclusive free mindfulness trainings. And, as always, please share your feedback in our Mindfulness Community Forums. Which musing above is your favorite? What do you want more or less of? Other suggestions?

  3. This week's question asks: What are some of your personal beliefs that you want to bring greater mindfulness to? We all hold somewhere within us beliefs that do not serve us. Which of your own beliefs would you like to bring greater mindfulness to? When you become aware of limiting or negative beliefs within you, what do you 'do' with them?

  5. Hello Athena! Wonderful to meet you here. I've never tried labyrinth walking but am intrigued! Do you have any tips or resource recommendations?

    Hi Priyanka! Great recommendation. I love this breathing technique.
  7. Hey Ali, I haven't read that book so can't recommend from my own experience, but the description sounds great and probably very aligned with what you are looking for. If you read it, I'd love to hear your thoughts and reflections on it. Your expression of feeling depressed because of where you could be is not uncommon; I've heard quite a few others share how down they feel do to so much time spent caught up in bad habits and addictions. I know it can be a difficult feeling to experience, but it is a huge win (even if it doesn't feel like it) that you now feel a renewed yearning to work through this. That takes strength and courage!

  9. you could try the bhramari pranayam which is the bee breath... when you hum on the exhalation it really helps when the mind is bouncing all over the place, and is very soothing...check it out and see if it helps :)

  11. Hey Gillian ! I think I might consider buying one of kevin's book from Amazon.. do you recommend Recovering joy: A mindful life after addiction ? my purpose is to move past the point of relapsing and have a sense of commitment instead of just giving up to temptations or because of a slip... I am really depressed because I could have achieved a lot in my life and and I could have been in a totally different place but I kept making poor decisions.. I don't want to keep repeating this pattern.
  12. Hello, My name is Athena. I meditate, and am new to welcoming a formal Mindfulness as my renewed meditation practice. I'm excited that there are others who share in mindfulness meditations. I also enjoy labyrinth walking which for me, inspires mindfulness and transformation.
  13. Thank you so much for the feedback! It means so much, especially since you have so much expertise.
  14. This is so sweet! Thank you for sharing. I love the simple movements in the beginning, and how that hugging movement ties in with the koala meditation. Perfect length for young kids I think, and the instructions seem very age-appropriate as well. Really well done!
  15. Hi Ali, You are certainly correct in your feeling that what you are experiencing is quite common. Many, many of us struggle to let go of habits that are not healthy or uplifting for us. You are certainly not alone! Have you checked out some of Kevin Griffin's teachings? If you decide to, let us know how it goes and if anything resonates with you. (Here's a link to another talk on the subject. I haven't watched it yet, but it could be helpful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ERvVXbzmV4) Also, some compassion-based practices could be very helpful too. Speaking for myself, I know that often, when I engage in some kind of behaviour or thought pattern that is not in my best interest, I compound the problem by criticizing myself. Coming back to our humanity and practicing unconditional self-love can go a long way. If you're interested, here are a few links for that: https://mindfulnessexercises.com/teacher/kristin-neff/ https://mindfulnessexercises.com/downloads/rain-of-compassion/ Wishing you the best!

  17. Hey @Gillian Sanger I truly appreciate your kindness, right now I can't afford a therapy session nor buying books ( I don't download PDF for legal reasons )... I think what happen to me is common, I guess most of us binge at late night or relapse to toxic habits.. I just want to stick to my diet and life plan...I want to stop ruining my life progress . I made this topic as I thought that mindfulness might help me observe urges and to at least have some sense of control instead of being driven by urges.
  18. I am attaching a link to one of my kids' meditations which incorporates movement. This is the first one from the Adventurous Animals series based on the Yamas and Niyamas....it is called Kind Koala and is based on the Yama of Ahimsa. Please forgive the plus at the very end, which was in my contract with Boldfish, the digital wellness platform that contracted me to create the podcast. The platform is sadly now defunct. Please also note this is the unedited (no music, perhaps a bit of background noise) version. In any event, I would love your feedback and wanted to share how I incorporated movement into the session. Be well. Rachel https://drive.google.com/file/d/1gBaMVtDN_N7iyKQYEVEUzEz1OfMWAZEY/view?usp=sharing
  19. Hi @Ali Zien, I realized that I forgot to mention a book I'm reading, which could be of interest to you. It's Russell Brand's 'Recovery' and highlights his understanding and approach to the 12 steps. I've found it very insightful so far!

    Day 1

    Thanks for sharing Arti! This is such a great reminder. We often think that presence, peace, and relaxation is so far from reach, but more often than we might realize it can be achieved in a single mindful breath.
  21. Hi Assil, Great question! 100 days is a long challenge, and there will definitely be days where we feel pressed for time or not interested in practicing. I'd say that it's entirely up to you how you approach this, but one thing that I often do when I am partaking in some kind of challenge or working towards a goal is this: Let's say I am aiming to meditate 20 minutes a day for 30 days. I will set up some kind of stipulation for myself that allows for human life to intervene. So for instance, I will set a 'rule' that if I miss a day, I will meditate for double - 40 minutes - the next day (either all at once or split into two). This helps me to stay on track and remain committed while also honouring the ebb and flow of life. Maybe something like this could be incorporated into your 100 day challenge. But ultimately, it is all completely up to you! Enjoy
