"Mindfulness as a Way of Living" with Dr. Michelle Maidenberg

This conversation is an important one. In this episode, I sat down with psychologist, author and professor Dr. Michelle Maidenberg. We discussed how mindfulness can become  more than just a concept, but a way of living.  Whether we struggle from anxiety or are looking to manage unique emotional moments, Michelle shares her wisdom in how to cultivate mindfulness in our daily life to react from our values instead of our emotions.

This episodes dives into:

  • What mindfulness is.
  • Being in the present moment.
  • Understanding the difference between mindfulness, meditation and other practices.
  • Mindfulness as a state of being and the science behind it.
  • The concept of “being” versus “doing.”
  • Thoughts versus behavior.
  • “Observing” mind versus “thinking” mind.
  • Loving kindness for yourself and others.
  • How to get started practicing mindfulness.
