How does embracing mind-body unity open up new possibilities to manage and enhance your health?
One of the best ways to connect your body to your mind is through mindfulness. But what exactly does that mean? And how do you become more mindful? If you’re like most people, the first thing that comes to mind is meditation. While meditation is a good practice, mindfulness itself is a way of being that has immediate results for your body and brain.
I’m excited to welcome Dr. Ellen Langer to the show today. Dr. Langer is a bestselling author, a professor of psychology at Harvard, and is known as being the mother of mindfulness. She’s here to talk about her latest book, The Mindful Body: Thinking Our Way to Chronic Health.
It can be hard to know when you’re not present, because when you’re not in the moment, you’re not aware. In fact, most people live in this state of unawareness. The good news is that mindfulness is a simple process that anyone can embrace. Listen in as Dr. Langer talks about how to become present and aware throughout your day, and how that simple shift can produce amazing results on your overall health.
