Re: staying mindful through the day

Thanks for the link!

Re: staying mindful through the day

Re: staying mindful through the day

Hello Joe I have identified trigger points and at these points I practice awareness. When the phone rings I focus on the walk to the phone-then take a few breaths and reply.

Re: staying mindful through the day

Namaste, Andy Thanks so much for the clip Andy! That was right on! It's exactly what I need ideas on: how ...
