Mindfulness. I recently discovered the wonders of this practice through a book entitled ‘Mindfulness for Life’. From this book I’ve discovered that many of my day to day habits were carried out in auto-pilot without any thought. Many of these habits were in fact of the bad variety which caused a large amount of stress in my life. Luckily with a small amount of practice in mindfulness, I’ve been able to dramatically reduce a lot of the daily anxiety that I face on a day to day basis. The exciting part of this discovery is that I wouldn’t even say that I’m good at being mindful, but the small attempts that I do make have already had such a positive impact on my life, that I feel encouraged to share this hidden secret (at least it was to me), with you all.
My guest this week is Associate Professor Dr Craig Hassed. Dr Hassed co-wrote the book I referenced above along with Dr Stephen McKenzie. I reached out to Craig to ask him about the book, his work and also to help me introduce mindfulness to you all. I hope this episode opens a new door for you and begins a journey of more awareness in your life.
