This question & answer column is for people living with chronic health challenges and their family caregivers, who want to learn to increase the odds of improving their health by learning to live with mastery & wellbeing.
I invite you to post your questions in the comments box below and I will answer them on a future Friday in this column.
I post to this blog three times per week. Monday posts are articles I’ve written. Wednesday posts are interviews—mostly video. Friday posts consist of your questions about living better with chronic health challenges, and my answers to them.
Someone recently asked me this question during one of my presentations:
Question: How do we do that (Learn to recognize and observe our behavior and label it as a practice.) (This was actually a follow-up question by the person who asked the question posted last Friday.)
Answer: This ability is best developed through a formal mindfulness type of sitting meditation practice. And that is best learned by going to an introduction to it at a Buddhist meditation center or by signing up for an 8-week MBSR class.
