Mindful : August 2016
A BOX OF SIMPLE ADVICE Stefanie and Elisha Goldstein are clinical psychologists at the Center for Mindful Living in Los Angeles, specializing in mindfulness, with a focus on families and children. Elisha is the author of Uncovering Happiness. Forgive, Investigate, and Invite To uncover happiness we need to accept what’s difficult and learn to savor the good. But the truth is we often dwell in excessively negative thinking and self-judgment. When you lose sight of your intentions, remember to forgive yourself. Investigate what pulled you off track without judging yourself, and then invite your- self to begin again. beliefs, especially when we’re stressed or unhappy. Choose a positive belief such as “I am skilled” and ask yourself: 1 Is it true? If your answer is “No,” then ask yourself: 2 Would someone else say it is true? Chances are, yes. Now, follow with: 3 If you were to accept this possibility, how would you feel? If you then start experienc- ing any positive feelings, allow yourself to savor them for a few moments. 10 Make your body happy Ifyoulookatamapofthe nervous system, you’ll see it goes from the brain throughout the entire body—there is no separa- tion. A healthier body means a healthier brain. Listen to your body and notice how it needs to be treated, moved, and fed. Bringing more mindfulness to your body is a recipe for overall well-being. 11 Keep track of your joys At the end of each day we are usually aware of the long list of bad things that happened. What if, instead, you focused on the joys? Make a list or write a journal entry about the things that bring you joy each day. It could be a smile a kind stranger gave you, the sweet smell of a flower you passed on the street, or the presence of a trusted friend or pet. The more you take note of what brings you joy, the more joy you’ll find in your everyday life. ● AD DharmaCraf ts THE CATALOG OF MEDITATION SUPPLIES THE CATALOG OF MEDITATION SUPPLIES THE CATALOG OF MEDITATION SUPPLIES Meditation Cushions Yoga Mats Inspirational Jewelry Meditation CDs DharmaKids Collection since 1979 dharmacrafts.com 866.339.4198 Keycode MFA Request a Catalog Call for Volume Discounts on Cushions Sign Up for Teaching Emails August 2016 mindful 29
