I didn’t get to speak with Gina Beigel of Stressed Teens because our schedules didn’t match up, but she was nice enough to send in, not one, but two, great video presentations for us to use. And she makes an amazing newsletter too!
“#Mindfulness is…tuning into now, so you’re not as tied to things that have happened or are going to happen. Not that you’re not going to have those thoughts. It’s more about what you do when you notice them. We can make our problems a lot worse by hanging onto them.”
“It’s not selfish to take care of yourself. You can’t care for anyone else if we don’t care for ourselves. We need to rigorously take care of ourselves so we don’t burn out.”
