Elisha Goldstein at Mindfulness & Psychotherapy has a good interview up right now that may hold interest for people in recovery for addictions. He talks to Ariane de Bonvoisin, a humanitarian, businesswoman, and the author of The First 30 Days: Your Guide to Making Any Change Easier.
In the interview, de Bonvoisin talks about the difference between people who think they are “good at” change and those who say they hate it; offers tips on how to make sure you’re one of the former; and identifies the ways in which mindfulness can be used during life change.
De Bonvoisin says:
“Change is always an opportunity to pause, go inside, listen to our ‘inner microphone’ and be in the present. Our lives get so busy, we live based on routines, we never really ‘think’ we don’t want to change. So when change does happen, either by courageous choice or from life circumstances, it is asking us to be honest with what is, and also what is not working for us and our lives.”
