If you’ve ever tried meditating, only to be constantly frustrated by the thoughts incessantly drifting into your mind, today’s episode is for you.
Meditation practitioner Emily Cordes joins Brooke in today’s show, where they dive into what it actually means to meditate, how to get started, and how living mindfully has helped Emily work through periods of anxiety and depression.
They also talk about the realisation that we don’t actually have to believe the thoughts our anxious minds present – a revelation that both Brooke and Emily have come to as a result of therapy, simplicity and mindfulness.
This might sound like a heavy episode, but it’s a really uplifting and inspiring conversation with loads of resources and links from Emily, to help everyone try their hand at meditation.
