Dr. Astrid Pujar, a Seattle-based doctor, talked about how mindfulness could help prevent cancer and how to live with it.
Stress is a fear response to life and we have a choice about how we react to an event; we don’t have to automatically react with fear. Mindfulness is the process by which we become aware of that choice and then choose something else. But in order to achieve that, you have to practice.
The doctor also gave breathing and meditation exercises during the event.
