Episode 1540: 4 Action Steps to Becoming More Mindful by Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog on Mindfulness Practice

Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.
