see all Slow Living Podcast notes, here.


Today, we are going to talk MINDSET.

This word gets thrown around an awful lot —

and I have a lot of thoughts on what it means, what it doesn’t, and how to slowly and carefully massage your mindset into one that works well for you — in whatever phase of life you might be currently in.

In a nutshell — mindset is about staying in the here and now and paying attention, without judgment, to what your brain is saying.

You have a constant dialogue  – when you are driving, when you are trying to fall asleep –

And a lot of times you aren’t paying attention to what your thoughts and mental chatter say –

And I’m suggesting that in order to live out the life of your dreams – the kind of life you want to live on purpose –

You should try your hardest to pay attention to your thoughts the very best that you can.

Mindfulness is a psychological process that allows you to pay attention to experiences as they happen without judgment.

It’s simple:

It’s about fully attending to what’s happening, to what you’re doing, and where you are.

Mindfulness plays a huge part in emotional stability because it represents one single factor:

It allows you to be not overly reactive to the negative situations happening in your life.
