Mindfulness and Asthma: What mindfulness is, why it’s not some weird revolution, and how it can impact your asthma—and life.
Being mindful with asthma.
Mindfulness, as I wrote above, is often really centered on breathing. That poses a bit of a challenge for those of us with asthma, doesn’t it? Just because mindfulness is “simple” doesn’t quite mean that it’s easy. In my next post, I’ll explain the role of meditation in mindfulness, how that fits when you have breathing issues, and what meditation actually is—or can be. While the non-breathing-challenged world makes meditation all about breathing, i’ll explain why that is… and why it does not have to be.
Do you have any interest in mindfulness? Did anything in this post stir up a question or two? Still think it’s nonsense? Let me know in the comments below!
