Why mindfulness? An overview of the effects of our digital life, on our minds and hearts, how our psychology has evolved to keep us connected, and how mindfulness helps us find balance.
Mindfulness with ourselves. Our relationship with ourselves is the foundation of how we relate to EVERYONE else. Mindfulness IS the journey from unrelenting self-criticism, to self-acceptance, and kindness- all without losing our edge.
Perfectionism isolates, vulnerability connects. Why do we try so very hard to be perfect, when I all it does is scare people? Why do we find it so hard to admit that we need each other?
Am I doing it right? Am I doing what I should be doing? How mindfulness helps us find clarity.
The curse of comparing mind- need I say more?
Making a commitment- what do I want and what am I willing to give up?
