Awareness Of The Body Meditation with Elise Bialylew

Reducing suffering in our lives requires us to become more familiar with the way our mind works.  

There are always going to be external stressors and events we can’t control that can bring suffering, but so often, our minds add suffering to our experiences. 

If we don’t stop and investigate the stories we tell ourselves, we fall into the quicksand of negative thoughts, especially when faced with increased stress like the pandemic, or any other day-to-day life stresses. 

Our stories can corrode and weaken our resilience, so an essential aspect of building our resilience is building our inner capacity to be aware of our thoughts and be more skeptical of them rather than taking them at face value. 

Mindfulness practice is a crucial inner tool for building greater resilience so that we can meet the stressors of life with more skillful responses. 

Remember, you don’t have to accept all thoughts as “truth”. 

Today, spend some time checking in with the “fake news” of your mind. 

I've found it so liberating to discover that I don't have to believe all of the thoughts that come into my mind.
