Mindfulness Meditation Exercise

Blog / Podcast

I wanted to take just a moment or two to discuss the idea of integrative health. Research studies are now bringing our attention to what many already know, which is that the mind affects the body and the body affects the mind. So whether we're working to become better parents, decrease our stress levels, improve our focus, or our responses to physical pain, it's very clear that this needs to be accomplished through a multi-pronged approach. I have attached a brief meditation exercise to help bring your attention to the connection between the mind, body and emotions. Please feel free to use this meditation as a tool and to use it as often as you'd like. I would ask that when you practice these meditations you do so in a quiet place where you will be uninterrupted. Additionally, if you are driving a car or operating machinery, I ask that you not participate in the meditation at that time. I hope you find this exercise helpful and a source of comfort.
