Hey Mindfuls,


I stumbled upon this video on YouTube and tried it out. It is a 15-minute meditation that uses sound to influence the right and left hemisphere of our brains. Usually EMDR uses bilateral eye movement (hence the "E" and the "M") but you can also use sound...

Mindfulness is so important. I tell this to my three children every morning before they go to school. I cannot emphasize it enough, h...

I mention mindfulness in all of my posts, it is part of my blog title, but I have never offered up a list of simple, real exercises to practice mindfulness. Being mindful is like exercise. It is like building muscles. If you don’t practice, you won’t have muscles. If y...
