Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

Shelly Young, LPC Health Guide August 27, 2010
  •   Stepping out of the comfort zone transformed my life. It all started with the discipline of doing mindfulness meditation. It was difficult for me. I felt agitated and wanted to jump out of my skin whenever I sat down. I meditated with a group and I was the only one in the meditation hall...

    I agree 100% with this post, most people do not understand the power of mindfulness. We live a hurried world and this is why people dismiss mindfulness. And to the previous poster it can help with diabetes, a filmmaker  did a study combining natural healing and mindfulness and it did help people http://www.onlineprnews.com/news/31027-1271354651-a-popular-reverse-diabetes-diet-by-a-moviemaker-is-working-well-for-many.html...

      Hi Anna:

       

      It's unfortunate that I can't express in words the power of mindfulness in my life and what it has done.  In posts, I never discuss specific clients or students, but I have witnessed dramatic life transformation usng mindfulness.  I appreciate your acknowledgment of mindfulness and it's power.

For sure, there are other advantages of this practice - peace of mind is the major one which in turn is a node to alliviate the tentacles of life otherwise....

      I absolute agree that mindfulness has not been shown to reverse diabetes.  It can however, certainly help with all of the discomforts in life, whether or not they are associated with diabetes or not.
