Working With "Habits of Mind"May 14, 2017 Mindful Coping Skills For The Real World
In this episode, Jeff takes a deeper look at working with various "habits of mind" and how mindfulness practice can help. He shares some stories from his life to illustrate how these various habits of mind can cause a considerable amount of unnecessary suffering for ourselves and for others around us unless we practice being more aware of how we are reacting internally to what we are feeling and we believe about what is happening to us in any given moment.. He brings it all together by explaining how sustained mindfulness practice can sharpen our awareness of what is going on in our minds and can "shine a light" on these "habits of mind" that we may have been unaware of previously so that we can begin to openly question them and loosen our grip on them..
