There?s a common misconception that mindfulness can reduce stress. What mindfulness actually does is increase your stress resiliency, which is how we respond to stressors in our environment. Stress will never disappear ? it?s a part of life ? but through meditation and mindfulness, we can learn to control our reactions to it, making our response to stress less extreme.
The book Kessonga mentioned is Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat-Zinn. You can also get a crash course on meditation and mindfulness in Andy?s book, Get Some Headspace.
If you like what you hear, you can spend more time with Kessonga inside of the Headspace app, where he leads a variety of guided meditations and wind downs for sleep.
