STOP: A Short Mindfulness Practice

This is a practice out of A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook, Foreword by Jon Kabat-Zinn, and co-authored by Bob Stahl Ph.D. and Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D. (New Harbinger, 2010). This short mindfulness practice is meant to be sprinkled throughout the day to support you in becoming more present, reducing stress, and being more effective in every day life.

    What hasn’t become mainstream knowledge yet, is that there are many other excellent sources of antioxidants. Eat vegetables, fruits (especially blueberries, the brain fruit), fish, nuts, lean protein, whole grain, etc. Like cortisol, these neurotransmitters are released during those fight-or-flight stress responses.
