#46: How to Find an Anchor While Meditating (Part 2)
The two practices of sati, or mindfulness, and metta, love and kindness, are distinctly different, but you cannot practice one without the other. It’s important to understand their differences in order to make the most out of your yoga practice. To start with, you cannot practice metta without sati. Sati is the mindfulness and awareness of what is. There is no imagination or visualization - what is simply is, and we must stay grounded in this practice in order to achieve mindfulness. Achieving this mindfulness is easier said than done because sitting and meditating is very intimidating to most of us. We are carrying existential pain and suffering deep within us and meditation forces us to sit with this pain. There’s absolutely nothing comfortable about that. But as you practice sati, you are practicing ways to observe this pain without fueling it. This objective way of looking at our thoughts and emotions makes it possible to practice metta. Metta is the power of creation through conscious thinking. When we practice metta, we are actively planting positive thoughts in our heart’s center of love, kindness, peace, and harmony, both toward ourselves and those around us. These positive thoughts can be things like “I am worthy” or “I deserve to be happy,” but they can also be as simple as the mere thought of love. Thinking of someone or something you love is part of the practice of metta. These thoughts tap into the vibration of love and give you the power to carry it within you and share it with others. As you listen today, think of your mind and heart as a garden. Sati will clear away the overgrowth of negative thoughts so you can plant the seeds of metta in an open mind and an open heart. I hope you recognize how important sati and metta are to not only our yoga practice but also to our own peace of mind. You cannot practice metta without sati because you cannot plant seeds of love before recognizing the pain and suffering that exists within your heart.

And while she’s in a great place with her lifestyle now, Michelle opens up about a time when she was training harder, but definitely not smarter. They also discuss the new positive habits Michelle has picked up in 2020 and how the past year has shifted her outlook when it comes to maintaining her relationships with friends and family. Oh, and there’s probably a good few minutes on her favourite snacks, too. So, if you are trying to keep a lid on the amount of between-meals morsels you’re consuming, maybe don’t listen when you’re peckish.

Beauty Special | Three dermatologists on how to get YOUR best skin.
This episode is brought to you in collaboration with Skin+Me. In a brand new episode of the podcast I’m joined by the expert team of consultant dermatologists from Skin+Me; Dr Malvina Cunningham, Dr Ben Esdaile and Dr Jason Thomson.  If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know I’ve seen a marked improvement in my own skin, dealing with the issues of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation since I started using the Skin+Me service. I’ve been so impressed, not just with my own results, but with how easy and efficient the service is.  One of the most impressive qualities of Skin+Me is the expert team of dermatologists behind the brand, which is why I asked them if they’d join me in an episode to answer YOUR questions about all things skin and skincare. In this conversation, Malvina, Ben, Jason and I discuss: * Who can benefit from seeing a dermatologist. * Whether there are there any downsides to long-term retinol/tretinoin use. * The topical ingredients that’ll make the skin look brighter. * Their views on the skin-tightening and anti-ageing benefits of LED. * How to know the difference between rosacea and general redness. * How to tell dry skin from dehydrated skin. * The topical ingredients that’ll support retinol in perimenopausal and menopausal skin. * Why niacinamide doesn’t work for some people and what to use instead. * Whether it’s really necessary to wash your face twice a day if you’re inside all day. * What effect stress has on the skin. * How to deal with maskne, and much more… Please note: this episode was recorded via video call as lockdown restrictions meant we couldn't record in-person so there may be inconsistencies with sound.

Mini-Meditation: Meditate on Your Lunch Break
Lunchtime is the time of day when we need an added dose of focus and energy to carry us through the rest of the day. It is a natural point of low energy, and often it is also a time when we start to think about how much we haven’t gotten done yet. We start planning tomorrow’s to-do list while still working through today. ** This tension between low-energy and high-demands actually diminishes our ability to get things done in a creative and timely manner. ** A mid-day meditation practice is benefited from bringing in the mindfulness tenant of non-judgment. Non-judgment asks us to release our obsession with ‘good job/bad job’. It asks us to let go of ‘I like it/I don’t like it’. And instead, it asks us to simply sit with what is… ** The simple flow of breath and quieting of the mind is restful and restoring for the body and the brain. Give this practice a try today and see how it impacts your afternoon! ** These mini meditations are meant to support a daily home practice. Tune in every Monday to find your practice for the week! Full episodes are released every Thursday for a longer, deeper practice. ** You can practice with me live each Monday as I record this podcast.
