This is the fifth (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 the “when” of meditation – brief comments on mornings, evenings, and a call to nail down a routine time. The guided meditation that finishes the podcast works with “time trials” – getting a feeling for sitting in attention for increasing stretches of time.
