It seems as if you can't escape the term "mindfulness" these days... and if you're like me, you hear people using that term interchangeably with meditation. Well in Session 53 of The Behavioral Observations Podcast, I chat with Gia Biscontini from W3RKWELL, and she enlightens me about not only the proper use of these terms, but also the benefits one can expect by adopting a consistent meditation practice. I certainly learned a lot in this episode, and Gia may have even convinced me to give meditation a try... Here are the links to some of the resources Gia mentioned: Gia's mini white paper on a behavior analytic view of meditation The book Altered Traits (Goleman & Davidson, 2017) The Center for Healthy Minds Gia's meditation and stress management course, Behavioral Xanax 2.0 (if you're interested in it and want to save 30%, use the promo code Operant).
