Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

In today’s fast-paced world, we are constantly bombarded by so many things that distract us from being in the present moment. With so much that we can access within our fingertips, whether it’s social media, our computers, or the news, it can be really tough to tune into ourselves.
Truthfully, it can sometimes feel better to distract ourselves than to really dig deep to understand how and why we feel the ways that we do. It’s time that we all learned how to be a bit more mindful.
Mindfulness is so much more than meditation. It can help us manage our stress, fears, and anxieties. While we often think that we’re too busy to practice mindfulness, we’re not. There are various strategies that can be used throughout our busy days. Our guest today, Josephine Atluri is here to show us how.
Josephine is an expert in meditation and mindfulness helping thousands of people overcome adversity to find joy. She is a graduate of the University of Chicago, and coupled her consulting background with her passion for Total Wellness to become certified as a meditation coach and teach corporate mindfulness. Plus, her experience creating her modern day family of seven children via in vitro fertilization, internal adoption and surrogacy inspires her work as a highly sought after fertility and parenting mindfulness coach.
Josephine also hosts a popular podcast called Responding to Life, talking health, fertility and parenthood, where she interviews guests on their inspiring responses to life’s challenges. Her parenting mindfulness expertise and fertility advocacy work has been featured in the LA Times, Mind Body Green, Motherly, Prevention, The Bump, Well + Good, and Women’s Day. Josephine is the author of the book Mindfulness Journal for Parents. Her new book, Five Minute Mindfulness for Pregnancy was released just a few weeks ago.
Josephine and I talk about what mindfulness is and the difference between mindfulness and meditation. We also discuss mindfulness in children and what it can look like for your day to day life.
