About Michelle Anhang: She is a mental health coach, supporting her clients in maintaining their own mental health through a more holistic perspective – through lifestyle changes, mindfulness and meditation.
In this episode, Adam and Michelle discuss:
Removing the stigma about mental health
Using meditation and mindfulness
Teaching meditation and mindfulness to your kids
Reject blame, shame, or any other stigma about mental health. Recognize and proclaim the effects of mental health and mental illness.
Respond in a way that’s beneficial to yourself and to the people around you, don’t react from emotion. Pausing for a couple of seconds helps.
Children will do as you do, not as you say. Practicing patience, meditation, and mindfulness yourself will teach them to respond to others in that way too.
“The ability to slow down and pause before reacting – that alone has changed my parenting tremendously…” — Michelle Anhang
