Changing Your Mind for Good

You’ve probably heard me talk about mindfulness on more than one occasion.

When I was having a really difficult time in my personal life, I start searching for ways to find more peace.

I tried out all kinds of new things including this crazy, weird practice called mindfulness.

It’s gained a lot more popularity since I stumbled upon it six years ago but there still seems to be some misconceptions about it.

Many people (especially lawyers) think that mindfulness means being weak or sensitive. That couldn’t be further from the truth. It simply makes you more aware, and that gives you strength and power and the ability to better regulate your emotions.

What used to trigger me and make me angry no longer has the same power. I can see more clearly what’s really going on, which allows me to more easily let go of what upsets me. It also means that when I speak, it’s not from a knee-jerk emotional reaction. That allows me to more clearly and confidently share my truth.

If you’re curious about mindfulness, I hope you’ll listen to this week’s podcast episode – How to Change Your Mind.

I share the basics of mindfulness so that you can start trying it out today.

I’m also sharing the notes and resources I give to CLE attendees on the topic of mindfulness. You can download a copy for free HERE.

Do you practice mindfulness? If so, leave a comment below and let me know how it’s changed your mind (and life). If not, let me know if you plan on giving it a try – I hope you do!
