Mindfulness is a frequent topic in my Seattle hypnosis office so I was particularly excited when Anderson Cooper reported on what it’s like to try to achieve “mindfulness,” a self-awareness scientists say is very healthy, but rarely achieved in today’s world of digital distractions. I teach all my clients mindfulness techniques that you can use throughout the day so that you can be in the moment and live consciously.

60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper: “There are a lot of different ways to talk about mindfulness, but what it really means is awareness.”
“This is just the next generation of exercise, we’ve got the physical, you know, exercise components down, and now it’s about working out how can we actually train our minds,” Dr. Judson Brewer told Cooper of mindfulness. Dr. Brewer is a psychiatrist and neuroscientist at the University of Massachusetts.
Cooper attended a mindfulness retreat and learned about the benefits of meditation, then met with Dr. Brewer and saw that the benefits of meditation are clearly visible via neurological measurements. After thinking of something anxiety-provoking, Cooper begins meditating and on-screen instruments show brain cells instantly reacting to the mindfulness technique.
As Cooper explains, “Dr. Brewer believes everyone can train their brains to reach that blue mindfulness zone. But he says all the technology we’re surrounded by makes it difficult.”
At breakfast, we spent time relearning some of the very basic things in life – including how to eat food. Eating a meal in complete silence is a little awkward, but without conversation as a distraction…you taste more and eat less.
When you breathe mindfully, there is a present that is in each moment. You can shift your attention away from anger, hurt, fear and sadness and focus on a quiet and peaceful mind to enhance your health and happiness. This is a gift that is available to you with each breath.
