You, Me, Empathy - Episode 11: Mindfulness and Mental Illness with Tony the Therapist

On Episode 11 of You Me, Empathy, we take another journey into our heads on the topic mindfulness, meditation, and yoga for another round of Tony Time. Tony shares how he brings mindfulness and meditation into his therapy practice, how mindfulness can benefit those with trauma (especially because trauma is held in the body), and how we can better connect with ourselves.

We also explore hyperarousal vs. hypoarousal, the survival element of disconnecting, and Tony shames (with love) Non for flubbing the opening! 

Do you have experience with meditation, mindfulness, and/or yoga? I'd love to hear how it has helped you and your mental health journey! Leave a comment below!

Thanks for listening, and thanks for empathizing with us!
