The Mindful Coping Podcast
"Always On" MeditationMarch 20, 2017 Mindful Oklahoma
Jeff talks about how mindfulness meditation doesn't just happen "on the cushion" in a formal practice....it can happen anytime that we are living life and dealing with our everyday challenges. He talks about how the whole idea of mindfulness practice is to allow us to be more aware of when we get caught up in reactions and in taking our thoughts and feelings too seriously and to return to the here and now once we gain awareness that we are doing so. We are presented with all kinds of unique and interesting opportunities to "wake up" and to lovingly and gently "catch ourselves in the act" of all kinds of mind states throughout each and every day, and there is no need to wait to practice until we are sitting quietly.
