We either dwell on the past or worry about the future, moving mindlessly from one activity to the next.
When you're not being mindful, you miss out on small moments that are often incredibly valuable... be it a beautiful park that you walk through on your journey to work or the taste and texture of a delicious meal.
In mindfulness meditation you can pay attention to your ongoing experience, whether it is:
- Pleasant: appreciating a beautiful sunny day
- Unpleasant: a disagreement with a loved one
- Neutral: doing household chores.
Listen in as Anna joins host Lisa Davis to discuss why being mindful is so essential to whole-body health, as well as tips from her book.
