Episode 2

This week we talked about dis­trac­tions, del­e­gat­ing, and defin­ing yourself.

I rec­om­mend­ed Full Cat­a­stro­phe Liv­ing: Using the Wis­dom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Ill­ness by Jon Kabat-Zinn as a good intro­duc­tion to mind­ful­ness, espe­cial­ly as a way to deal with chron­ic illness.

I also ref­er­enced Dr. Irene Tra­cy’s study on the val­ue of dis­trac­tion to change the per­cep­tion of pain, which is sum­ma­rized in Imag­ing how atten­tion mod­u­lates pain in humans using func­tion­al MRI.

Next week, we’ll con­tin­ue the series on del­e­gat­ing, learn about cre­at­ing Well­ness Recov­ery Action Plans, and more.

This week’s music was pro­vid­ed by the Pod­safe Music Net­work. The song was “Morn­ing on Haleakala Hwy” by Kimo Watan­abe.
