Mindful Moments

Mindful Moment: Decisions

August 27, 2017 | By Julie Luzarraga

We make decisions, big and small, all day.  Some decisions are relatively inconsequential, like deciding what to wear or which way to take to work. They are split second decisions we don’t even think about.  When was the last time you thought about your response to the cashier asking “how are you?”?  Then there are […]

Mindful Moment: Weeding

May 21, 2017 | By Julie Luzarraga

Much like other discomforts or inconveniences, weeds are an inevitable part of life.  If we rid the world completely of weeds, we would also sacrifice the abundance of the plants, flowers, and vegetables we so enjoy.  Throughout life, we sow seeds with the hope of experiencing the harvest.  We plant seeds literally and metaphorically.  Next, […]

Mindful Moment: The “other” way

March 13, 2017 | By Julie Luzarraga

Our brains like efficiency.  Anything that can be categorized or put into routine is preferred.  Think about how you cross your legs, drive to work, and sit in your favorite chair.  It’s probably the exact same thing each time. While consistency and routine can be comfortable, it is fertile ground for mindlessness.  There is nothing […]

Mindful Moment: Pause

February 25, 2017 | By Julie Luzarraga

What would it look like if we all paused for just one breath?  What if you paused before that snarky comment came out of your mouth; before you mindlessly cut someone off in traffic; before you sent that email?  Mindfulness teaches that when we pause we make better and more loving decisions. Our current culture, […]

Mindful Moment: Surrender

February 20, 2017 | By Julie Luzarraga

In many of the practices we embrace at Omaha Integrative Care there is a delicate balance between will and surrender, between change and acceptance.  The complementary therapies show us that by changing our behaviors, the way we think and even the way we eat can have profound impacts on our emotional and physical health. Yet, […]

Mindful Moment: Spaces between

February 13, 2017 | By Julie Luzarraga

Have you ever noticed that every once in awhile there is a lull in group conversation?  Even though there may be multiple conversations going on and lots of people chattering, it suddenly gets quiet.  Some people call this the 7 minute lull.  It may even feel awkward and usually someone will chuckle and say aloud “there’s the […]

Mindful Moment: Being ‘okay’

February 05, 2017 | By Julie Luzarraga

We tend to focus on extremes.  Life is either good or bad; sad or happy.  We are productive or lazy; succeeding or failing.   Our brains naturally gravitate towards this way of simplifying things.  Putting things, people, and experiences into buckets may be efficient, but it does not allow for the in-between.  And the in-between is […]

Mindful Moment: Slow down

January 23, 2017 | By Julie Luzarraga

We live in a fast-paced world with unrealistic expectations.  We expect to get things done faster and better than is actually possible.  How many times do you set unrealistic goals for the day or the week; failing to consider what is humanly possible to accomplish in a 24-hour period of time. There are lots of […]

Mindful Moment: Being uncomfortable

January 15, 2017 | By Julie Luzarraga

We are all uncomfortable at some points throughout our days and our lives.  Without experiencing being uncomfortable, we would not know what it is to be comfortable.  Think about having a cramp in your leg.  Most likely, you stretch your leg out, roll the ankle and work out that cramp.  The stretch feels so good […]

Mindful Moment: Life’s Subtleties

January 08, 2017 | By Julie Luzarraga

It’s easy to get caught up in the largeness of life.   Despite the trend toward tiny houses and minute electronic devices, we continue to be overwhelmed by large things.  The volume is loud, the colors are bright, and even our goals and dreams become overwhelming.  We want things quickly and with as little discomfort as […]
