#51: Shutting Off Your Busy Mind

Do you have trouble shutting off your busy mind?

In this episode, I discuss why we need to respond instead of reacting, and I reveal the times when you need meditation the most. Most importunately, I’m giving practical ways that you can start treating the symptoms of a busy mind (for the long term)!

Things you will learn in this episode:

  • What’s the difference between masking the symptoms of a busy mind and treating the underlying cause
  • What happens with your mind’s “flight or fight mode” when you’re thinking about work versus real danger
  • Ways to trigger your amygdala less
  • The reason some people feel like they can’t meditate
  • Different techniques that could work for you in your own life!
