We can all apply specific mindfulness techniques to help us navigate these emotionally tricky times with as much emotional resiliency as possible. 

The goal is not to avoid hard times, but to know without doubt that you can survive these times.

When we are feeling the impact of traumatic stress, one of the primary feelings is powerlessness. Therefore, the antidote is to begin to regain a sense of power during our days.  We can start by bringing our minds right back here to the present moment. Join me for today’s mini episode of The Mindful Minute as we use presence to calm ourselves and reclaim our peace of mind. 

These mini meditations are meant to support a daily home practice. Tune in every Monday to find your practice for the week! Full episodes are released every Thursday for a longer, deeper practice.

You can practice with me live each Monday as I record this podcast. My virtual meditation class includes time for Q&A and a chance to connect with me personally! https://www.union.fit/orgs/meryl-arnett
