How do you contribute to the positive energy of the universe? In what ways do you embrace the role of silence in your life? When things aren’t going your way, what kind of body language do you project? How do you intentionally control your emotions?
In the 21st episode of ‘4 X Mindfulness’, Andy and Neila discuss their thoughts related to the above 4 questions. In Andy’s first seed of mindfulness he shares his big takeaway from a recent Finding Mastery podcast that he listened to that focused on doing good for others and making a difference. For Andy’s second seed of mindfulness, he shares a strategy that he learned from well-known sport psychologist, Dr. Karl Morris, that provides insight into self-awareness of our own body language.
Neila’s seeds of mindfulness deal with the powerful role that silence can play in both our personal and professional lives. As well, Neila shares an interesting fact about the first NASA mission to the moon and what they had astronauts specifically train themselves to be able to do in order to be able to handle any conditions thrown their way. Neila discusses the connections to mindfulness that resonated with her as a result of learning about this NASA story.
