ZfEL Ep. 5: How Mindfulness Helps Us Overcome Difficult Everyday Challenges


In this week's episode I talk about the wisdom of mindfulness in our everyday lives. How mindfulness aids us in working through issues of lack (such as financial issues), relationship problems, and a lack of self-worth.

I also take you through a quick guided meditation I call "mindful wisdom" to help you move through everyday challenges with more skillfulness and ease.
