This is the fourth (of twelve) episodes of The Practically Mindful Moment podcast series. PMM’s are brief bits of featured information on concepts and tactics from Dr. Greg Sazima’s new book, Practical Mindfulness: A Physician’s No-Nonsense Guide to Meditation for Beginners (Mango Media, release date 1/19/2021).
Each PMM clocks in at a user-friendly ten minutes or so; just a brief tuning in, learning opportunity, and brief guided exercise in mindfulness. (And a quick, shameless plug for the book.)
In this episode, Dr. S covers an aspect of meditation that is essential but often overlooked and underappreciated: the attitudes in which we approach the practice. The guided meditation that finishes the podcast opens up about the beginnings of watching the breath – a good start to meditating.
