Today, I’m talking with Amanda Script, a wellness coach and natural food educator in Chicago. Amanda has been working in the industry for more than a decade, first as a restaurant chef in New York City and now a wellness coach and natural foods expert. Tune in to this episode to learn more about mindful eating and changing the relationship we have with food.
Today we are diving head first into mediation. Up until about year ago I was one of those peoplewho thought mediation just wasn't for me and that my brain just really doesn’t function that way. Luckily, I’ve kept at it and I am seeing real benefits in how it is changing my stress levels, my reaction to things and my outlook on life, but I still have some questions.
Luckily we are learning from mediation expert, Andrew Radja. He is the owner of Soul Path Studio located and has been practicing mediation since 2008. In episode two he gives us tons of real word examples and tips for getting started or when we just aren't getting it. He even walks us through a body scan mediation at the end of the episode. I encourage you all to follow along and give it a try!
