68: The Art of Mindfulness

There has been a lot of excitement around the idea of mindful eating (and mindfulness in general) over the last few years. With all the chatter about this important approach to life/eating, I thought I'd invite an expert to come on the podcast to talk about the art of mindfulness.

Noah Rasheta is the host of the Secular Buddhism Podcast. He has completed formal training for lay ministry in buddhism. He focuses his podcast around the quote from the Dalai Lama who said: "Do not try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are.”

In this episode, Noah and I discuss some of my favorite principles of Buddhism. We talk about the power of questions (rather than answers), we discuss the art of self-compassion, we talk about how to create a gap between a stimulus and a response, Noah makes the point that the little things aren't little, we discuss how to reduce suffering and the concept of non-attachment, and more.

Practicing the principles of Buddhism and mindfulness in general can help lead to a more joyful, fulfilled life. This conversation with Noah revolves around the ideas of a mindful approach to food, eating and body image.
