Because when you are so wrapped up in yourself, it's hard to live outside of that bubble. But when you can take the time to be mindful, you open yourself up to other points of view.Thoughts on BreathingI have to live every day to breathe. I think, especially with the background I have, the clients that I care for something like breathing, and grounding techniques, something that can be implemented wherever we are. We don't have to have special tools or a tool belt to be able to implement an effective coping strategy and breathing we carry with us everywhere we go. And so whether it's a stressful situation or a financial decision I'm making in the store, when I need to be present in the moment, I ground myself. Oftentimes, deep breathing techniques are what I go to at that moment to help gain clarity.Suggested ResourcesBook: I Will Teach You to Be Rich: The Journal: No Complicated Math. No More Procrastinating. Design Your Rich Life Today. App: CalmBullying StoryI think as the frugality podcast in the personal finance world, we can definitely get picked on because it's much sexier to talk about investing and side hustling and entrepreneurship. And many people dump on frugality, because of its correlation to a scarcity mindset. I definitely like my life's work and my passion for helping bullied people. But we have to understand that everybody is in their own place and on their own journey. You have to realize that frugality is for everyone, but you have to be in a place for it.Related EpisodesLive True With Authenticity; Ora Nadrich Your Success Insights With Dr. Richard Shuster Grasping The Emotion of Trauma; David Richman Special OfferAre you experiencing anxiety & stress?
