Episode 1

What is mindfulness anyway and what are the benefits to caregivers?

In this introduction to the series, Sue and Lee introduce themselves and discuss how they found mindfulness and how it helps them.

In the episode, Sue talks about stress contagion research that shows us that we can “catch” stress from each other, and reminds us that we can also spread the feeling of calm with mindfulness practice.

Sue leads us through a guided meditation as a tool for caregivers. More information here on the research about stress contagion by Eva Oberle in 2016 Stress contagion possible amongst students and teachers: UBC study
