    I have insomnia when i was 20s. I always waked up in the middle of the night 2 or 3 times in every sleep. My therapist teached me about sleep cycle like this articles and suggest mindfulness practice for my routine. After 8 session, thanks God, I can sleep better! Sometimes that unhealthy pattern come again, especially when I feel anxious or blue. But I can...

  • People think that mindfulness mean have zero in your mind, so they beat up their mind if it to noisy when they practicing mindfulness. And then they intend to have a harsh judgement for themselves. I think this is the biggest challenge to practicing mindfulness as a newbie

  • recognizing emotions and acknowledge it, not deny it, is very good way to let them pass

  • RAIN mnemonic is very useful, young adult clients will really like it; and be our instant alarm every single time we face hard time

  • "mindful acceptance is an expansive state which helps the person to respond, rather than react, to situations." (Kabat-Zinn, 1992)

  • mindfulness is the key to nourish our self-compassion...I found that it easier to deliver the concept of self-compassion to teenager and young adult after practicing mindfulness in routine

  • I found that my thought are really empty. I just hear the fan in my room. I feel free and open to every moment. I believe it because of another exercises before that helping me to be here and now. Thank u very much, I feel so happy

  • wrote love letter to myself feel so touching, I remembered the first time I done it. It really become the wonderful entrance for me to study self-compassion and mindfulness

  • Self-compassion and mindfulness practices are become my daily routine since 2013. However, I found that I need to do it daily to make me stronger, alleviate suffer; consistency is the key. Just like we go to gym routinely to tone up our muscles

  • Millie case remind me about what happened to me in 2013. I am very harsh to myself, very judgemental, and think that I am the most suffered person in this worlds, no one understand me. I found that self-compassion is very helpful, I do kind to myself, I am not judging myself anymore, and I found that I have more and more energy to give compassion for everyone....

  • I make a slower but full of awareness in this week than week 1. Frankly, I easily anxious person since I was a kid, and now I often have clients with anxiety. These materials and practices in week 2 help me a lot to cope with my condition and give me many references to share with my clients. My favorite practice is muscle relaxation. I found it so simple but...

  • the exposure technique like systematic desensitization is nothing without mindfulness breathing...I found it very good for my clients with phobia

  • I found that track 8 audio practice is very wonderful. The article about anxiety is also very easy to understand. As a clinician I prefer to open this article than looking for about anxiety in DSM-5 :D

    School can be a stressful place like everywhere else. So we need to manage ourselves and our reaction with mindfulness practices

  • Rio Dwi Setiawan made a comment

    during the guided body scan practice, I found that my body felt uncomfortable. I can't breath easily and felt itchy everywhere, then tired till I think I need to stop for now and continue tomorrow. For me, mindful breathing felt better than the body scanning

  • The echo of the bell feel so relaxing, i could heard the birds too. I think the other idea for mindfulness bell for me is my cat purring

  • this evidence may make a skeptical do mindfulness practices daily

  • Wow! the video from Khan Academy Medicine and the hand model from Dr Daniel Siegel are make me understand about emotion and the brain easily

  • when i feel stress because of perceived threat or overwhelmed, I always feel my heart beat so fast. Sometimes it hard to breath and I sweat a lot. I awake at night oftenly when I feel stress

  • thank u for week 1. I really enjoyed it

  • air and breathing are gifts of God those we seldom realize

  • Rio Dwi Setiawan made a comment

    i found it make me aware about myself and around me, yet relaxing

  • As long as I know there is no national program regarding the implementation of mindfulness in schools in Indonesia, I really want to initiate it

  • the Headspace video is really really easy to understand, I may share it to my school aged client when we doing mindfulness exercises. I found boredom is always the obstacle I face, so I really look forward for week 4

  • sensory awareness always a good beginning to doing mindfulness exercises

  • I think mindfulness exercises should include in elementary and high school curriculum. Thank u for so many research quotes those we can make as references

  • When I do mindfulness exercises with teenagers, they always find it strange and awkward at the first time. After this was done for 3-4 meetings they always stated that it was easier for them to feel happy, less tense, and able to think more clearly. However they laugh a lot or find it very challenging to do, I think mindfulness exercises have so many benefits...

  • I think the development of technology make people -especially teenagers and young adult nowadays- have crowded and noise minds. Their minds become more active and creative but on the other hand they are not used to being aware of the emotions they feel, or channeling them in the right way. Eventually their actions tend to be careless and miscalculated

  • thank u for sharing Dr Cassie Maguire, very insightful!

  • I just know now that intensity of mindfulness practices may have risks. Thank u for this article

  • after shaking my right hand, I feel it warmer than my left
