Be on the lookout for things to be grateful for and then take a minute to really appreciate whatever I find. Rosanne Hagel Gerritsen Facebook Just breathe! And pay better attention to my surroundings! Liz Massey @AudioStor y Stop and listen. Sometimes we are more focused on our words and less on what people really say to us. Stefano Pace @StefanoPace5 Tell everyone who has supported me how much I appreciate them. KadampaDuck @kadampaduck connect you asked ILLUSTRATIONBYJASONLEE you wrote in What a great issue (December 2013). I especially enjoyed the ar ticle about Eileen Fisher—had no idea what a great woman she is professionally and personally. “All in the Same Boat” about the teenagers sharing five days and nights in a wooden sailboat was such an uplifting ar ticle to read. Looking for ward to many more years of Mindful magazine! Joann Petrosky Denver, Pennsylvania Thank you for the informative and nec- essary ar ticle “To Pause and Protect” (October 2013). I am a meditation teacher and work with veterans experiencing PTSD. With a background as a prosecu- tor, I am aware of the ex treme on-the-job stress, which is often not discussed within the ranks of our neighborhood police depar tments. Kudos to Lieutenant Goerling for bringing this life-changing practice to Hillsboro Police Depar tment and to his depar tment for being open enough to par ticipate. Sara Erlbaum Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania I won’t be renewing my subscription. I am finding the magazine to be just too sug- ar-coated and simplistic. Leafing through, I get the impression that just a little bit of mindfulness will solve all our problems. This, of course, is nonsense. Meditation can be really hard work. Your magazine would be a whole lot more meaningful if it explored the shadows and the dirt. Frank Forencich Leavenworth, Washington I was intrigued by your “Take Five” editorial in the June 2013 issue. I was par ticularly interested by the benefits that meditation brought to your weekly meetings. I recently moved to New York and star ted work in a relatively conservative corporate environ- ment. I found that if I take even five minutes to clear my mind and sit in silence before a meeting, I’m much more composed and relaxed throughout that meeting. I’m not in a position to change corporate culture just yet, but I’m thankful that you inspired me to bring mindfulness into my daily routine. Keep up the good work of not only writ- ing about mindfulness but living it too. Jacob Hallac New York, New York A: On the road, you’re dealing with both the drive time and the well-known stress of the traveling salesperson. Long hours in a car alone can be taxing, then you have to get out and ask someone to buy some- thing. And they often say no! In addition to listening to some good audio about mindfulness—there’s one for drivers called Awake at the Wheel—you can use the time for meditation-in-action practice. Pay gen- tle attention to your hands on the wheel, your body upright, and your bottom on the seat. When your mind wanders and your jaw clenches, come back to your body. Breathe easy. From time to time, notice the big sky. Q: I am a sales representative for a large manufacturer, and my job is ver y stressful. I often have drive time between sales calls. Are there any mindfulness techniques to help reduce stress while on the road?
