Chronic Illness Q&A with Dr. B.
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. When I get a certain number of related questions, I pick one that covers them all and I answer that one.
I post to this blog three times per week. Monday posts are relevant published articles. Wednesday posts are interviews—mostly video. Friday posts consist of questions about living better with chronic health challenges, and my answers to them.
Here is this week’s question:
THIS WEEK’S QUESTION: In reference to viewing all behavior as practice, someone at one of my presentations asked me how we can learn to do that.
ANSWER: In order to view all our behavior as practice, we must first develop a moment-to-moment awareness of all our behavior. The best way to learn to recognize and observe our behavior and label it as a practice is to develop 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
