Balancers, if growth is what you're here for, you NEED to find a way to embrace or push through the discomfort that comes with being out of your comfort zone.Often we feel this and take that as a sign we are failing, or not ready to start, or that we should doubt ourselves BUT most of the time none of these are true.

If you find it hard to meditate, or make time for it, then you're going to ABSOLUTELY love this chat today.Today I am joined by Michael Amster, a physician and faculty member at the Touro School of Medicine. He has twenty years of experience as a pain management specialist, been a student of meditation for over thirty years and is a certified yoga teacher. Today we dive into a recent discovery, something that is going to change the way you look at mindfulness for 2023 and beyond. Michael is going to explain the power of the A.W.E method including the science that backs it up, the three levels of consciousness, and how to achieve powerful results for both our physical and mental health in under 1 minute a day.A.W.E's initiationAt the height of the pandemic, two trial groups embarked on a study through UC Berkeley to test a new method for “micro-dosing mindfulness.” One group was comprised of frontline healthcare workers; the other consisted of patients at a local medical center, as well as any of their friends and family who wished to participate. Almost immediately, both groups reported significant improvement in symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain—results that bore out over the course of the study and beyond. Jake Eagle, LPC and Michael Amster, MD, knew that they were on to something.(00:00) Introduction of Guest(04:34) Micro-dosing Mindfulness(06:50) Study Results(08:30) A.W.E introduced(12:46) Saving time and practicing Mindfulness(14:35) Safety Consciousness(17:27) How to start practicing(23:32) The Science of A.W.E(26:44) How to know when you're experiencing A.W.E(33:00) Links & ResourcesYou can connect with the movement on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and TikTok.Share this episode with your mum, sister or a friend if you know they'll love it too!Thanking our partner sponsor for this episode SUNSAMA, an online planner tool which has been game changing in my organisation and focus.

BUT as we know, awareness is key and I never leave you hanging with just the items, but also tips on how to actually stop doing them and change your day to day behaviour to get the most out of your work & time. I would highly recommend selecting one habit at a time to work on, before adopting them all at once. Bear this in mind as you listen in - maybe rank them from most important to least important and work backwards so (a) you actually stick to the changes and (b) you don't get overwhelmed doing so.Share this episode with your mum, sister or a friend if you know they'll love it too!Until next time,Stay BalancedP.S.

Click here to have your say!Today's episode:“If you quit on the process, you are quitting on the result” ... “Never Give Up” ... “Only Quitters Quit”.... There are so many sayings with the same basic idea, that quitting is a bad thing. This idea is instilled in us from the youngest age and even as we grow up, considered common place. To me however, winners do not quit or give up because the task is difficult or because they’re lazy, they quit because they are mature enough or self aware enough to acknowledge that something is no longer worth their time or energy. So today I'm going to reframe quitting to "letting go" and offer you some perspective shifts so you can finally let go of whatever is no longer serving you, that maybe you've been clinging on to out of fear of judgement.

Today I have dedicated the last of our Balance Rules series to this area because I feel there is SO much potential in our capabilities when we have a healthy and well defined relationship with work.Does this mean you won't work any overtime? No. Does this mean you won't work hard? No! It's about getting to the core of what you require from a job and knowing when it is taking you away from the other areas of your life.
