Like you. my life is crazy busy. I try to fit in time for self care and I’m always on the look out for simple ways to help me manage myself better so I can continue to excel in work and life.
And it seems that when you start thinking about something you suddenly notice it more and more. Like when you decide to buy a new car and suddenly you see that car you want everywhere.
The brain has a specific thing to focus on and it starts focusing.
That’s what’s been happening with me and the topic of meditation.
I first started investigating meditation when I was in a particularly stressful point in my life. My husband and I lived 500 miles apart. I was in full blown recovery dealing with issues as an adult survivor of abuse. And we had family drama going on at the same time.
I had heard that meditation could do great things and that people in all professions used it and believed it made a huge difference for them.
So I tried it.
I got nothing from it.
But like I said as I started to think about it and read more about it I thought maybe it’s time to investigate this again and I thought I’d go to an expert.
And I figured you might be interested in it too so I invited back Brodie Welch for another interview and I was thrilled when she said yes.
Brodie is a licensed acupuncturist, board-certified herbalist, Chinese Medicine expert and self-care strategist. She’s the founder of Life in Balance Acupuncture in Corvallis, Oregon where she has been treating patients since 2003.
