New Year's Resolution #1 - Listen to more ocean waves and relax. This week Kevin and Niseema talk with Dr. Jen Wolkin PhD., Neuropsychologist, and author of the book “Quick Calm: Easy Meditations to Short-Circuit Stress Using Mindfulness and Neuroscience.” We start the show with the sound of ocean waves that helps illustrate how quickly we can achieve a sense of calm when we just focus our attention on a particular sound.
Dr. Jen shows us how to start a mindfulness practice by teaching diaphragmatic breathing that can have the same effect as the sound of the ocean. We talk about how to bring mindfulness to something as mundane as washing the dishes and being present in the moment. There are 25 five-minute mindfulness exercises in this book that can reduce stress and enhance your life throughout the coming year.
