Overcoming Hard Times through Mindfulness and Meditation

In this episode of What You’re Craving, Molly connects with Lindsey Pearson. Lindsey is a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Teacher (MBSR), a Registered Yoga Teacher, as well as a Certified Workplace Mindfulness Facilitator from Mindful Leader. She has led international workshops and is the author of the Distraction Detox: A Self-Care Workbook.

Lindsey talks about the impact that practices like meditation and mindfulness had on her healing journey. Lindsey went through hard times a few years ago – relationship issues, losing her dream job, and, on top of that, the pandemic – and she saw herself having to handle her biggest fears all at once. At that time, she had to make a decision: to relapse or to shift her perspective.

These trauma wounds inspired her to create her company and to help others experience more peace and feel happier, even when dealing with setbacks. In addition, Molly and Lindsey discuss guilt and how it plays an important role in our journey to change and how self-compassion is the best way to live daily life. Tune in!

Episode Quotes
