What are your thoughts about mindfulness?  

Sound like a hippie buzz word? 

What if I told you that mindfulness is the foundation of a healthy lifestyle? 

Wait… does that mean you get to avoid food programs and exercise? 

Well, no. 

But, when you begin practicing mindfulness, you become more aware of the signals your body sends to you around food, sleep, exercise, and stress. 

You also become more aware of your thoughts about these aspects of your life, and once that happens, you’re faced with a decision…own your behavior choices or try to lie to yourself. 

The later choice rarely works out well because you always know when you’re lying to yourself. 

In this two-part episode I’ll tell you more about what the practice of mindfulness is. Meaning you don’t have to run off to India and stay in an ashram for a month to figure it out. 

You also don’t need to spend 30 minutes a day in meditation to live more mindfully.  

I’ll offer you simple ways to incorporate more mindfulness (aka awareness) into your life and I’ll explain why that’s so important to a healthy lifestyle. 

In part two I give you a mindfulness meditation practice to get you set up for success in just 15 minutes.
