Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness allows me to take a step back. There are similar tools we use in cognitive behavior therapy that allow you to be an objective bystander so-to-speak to emotions and recognize that the world isn't doing this to you. This is something that's happening and you have a choice as to how you respond to it. 

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Breathing is really important. Shallow breathing is not great, it's that deep, diaphragmatic breathing … I do that every day.
  • I have a red-light therapy panel that hangs on my wall and I stand in front of that thing for twenty minutes every day and I do my breathing during that. So I get to combine those two so I know I'm getting at least twenty minutes of deep breathing every day.

Bullying Story

  • It happened to me a bit in elementary school. I've worked a lot with children who have been physically and sexually abused. Mindfulness isn't going to make the bullying stop. You as a parent or you as a victim would have to take some kind of action to make that stop.

  • If you have a mindfulness practice, you're better able to handle the stress of what that looks like.

  • [With mindfulness], you are going to be less prone to internalize what's being said about you.
