Episode 5 Season 2: Mindfulness: Emotional Recovery That Sticks

Episode Description:

Mindfulness: Emotional Recovery That Sticks introduces you to the concept of mindfulness, the benefits of mindfulness, and how mindfulness can help heal trauma. Mindfulness is simply coming back to the present moment and into our bodies, but the practice is so much more. This episode covers specific exercises and mindsets you can use to practice mindfulness, and how you can practice Christian mindfulness with the presence of God to help you come back to the present moment, since trauma can so often take us away from it. The episode shows the science behind how mindfulness can help you heal trauma, gives you ways you can practice mindfulness in your daily life, and clarifies how to slowly add this practice to your life to safely use it as a method for healing trauma, abuse, and difficult emotions.
