Episode 34: Mindfulness & Mental Health with Lauren Stewart
Mindfulness may be something you've heard of but it's not always something that's talked about in conjunction with mental health. We hear about meditation, self-awareness, and deep-breathing practices but what about some of the more basic things we can do especially if you're working through things like anxiety, depression, or ADHD.
Today Lauren Stewart joins us and we talk ALL about ways to practice mindfulness with mental health in mind. We also share our personal experiences with both anxiety and depression and talk about ways you can incorporate mindfulness into your daily life.
