The Energy Answer: Interview With Emily Lewis

Updated: Mar 26, 2022

The Energy Answer with Alison Butler is an interview series where we explore mental & physical well being and tools we can use to reduce stress and overwhelm.

Hi Everyone!

I'm so excited to be sharing this chat with Emily Lewis of Mindfulness with Emily. I think we can all use a little more mindfulness in our lives right now.

In our conversation, we talk about:

  1. What mindfulness actually IS - there's so much buzz around this topic right now but how can we understand it in plain language?

  2. What mindfulness is NOT (hint: it's not about "clearing" your mind of thoughts)

  3. A simple example of mindfulness - putting your hands around a warm mug and sitting for a moment feeling the warmth and noticing the experience.

  4. What's happening (physically) in our brains and bodies when we are going through periods of stress (hint: it's the modern day version of running from a Lion) and how mindfulness is based in psychology and neuroscience.

  5. How we can use our breathing to help us feel more relaxed & quiet our nervous system.

  6. How important it is to be aware of the small moments in life.
