Effect on Emotions
  • For me, it is about really being aware of emotions. And then going that extra step. What did I just do to make that emotion happen? Because thought influences emotion.
Thoughts on Breathing
  • So important. Because whenever we get stressed, we all go shallow breathing and I sometimes recommend that people just stick a few post-it notes around their house or their apartment. And whenever you see one of those, breathe those notes. Take a deep breath. A New Context To Grief

Bullying Story
  • As a child, I got bullied a lot because you wouldn't know it today. Today, I'm very tall but I was always the smallest and the skinniest kid in the class. There was a classic bully and I got bullied a lot by her as all children probably did. I thought if I only found a way to please her so that then she'd approve of me, then the bullying would stop.
  • If I had been able to just mindfully zoom out of that situation and imagine all of those different situations being played out on a movie screen, for example, I would have probably come to the realization that no matter what little me did, I wasn't ever going to get her approval. A New Context To Grief
  • If I had just had that mindfulness approach and just gone – hang on a minute, just take many, many steps back, just see the big picture here. And oh, come back to you. That has made a huge difference. A New Context To Grief
