Mindful : June 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 author of Uncovering Happiness. The body gives us a way to identify emotions, so we can practice self-compassion toward nega- tive emotions and learn to savor positive ones. We can activate our biological healing process and open the door for happiness. The next time you notice a strong difficult emotion arising, try this SAFE practice: S Soften the muscles of your body A Allow the body to be as it is without a need to fix anything F Feel any emotions in your body. Ask yourself what you need: To feel safe, to accept yourself as you are, to find inner strength. E Expand your positive intentions to all people every where. You might say, “May all people feel safe, be strong, be happy.” your body—changing your posture, opening up your chest, doing gentle twists, or sun salutations—you become more present. 10 Laugh it out A study out of Loma Linda University showed that laughing for short periods of time can help us reduce stress and increase short- term memory. Another study out of the Univer- sity of Maryland showed that laughter can protect against heart disease. Spend more time with people who make you laugh and doing things that make you laugh. Plus, laughter is contagious, so when you laugh, you are positively impacting the world. 11 Smile wide Like laughter, a half-smile sends a signal to the brain that something good is happening. Experi- ment with gently smiling throughout the day and see how it feels. ● 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 June 2016 mindful 29
