Ep. 29 – Mindfulness Practices for the Holidays, Losing Weight, & The New Year – with Paula Youmell

Paula Youmell is a functional medicine practitioner, natural health educator, and Wise Woman Nurse®. Paula’s newest book, Weaving Healing Wisdom, offers readers “a friendly, confidence-building mode of coaching calculated to serve the wellbeing of readers at all levels.


The book has been praised by educators, medical professionals, and health practitioners as the single best guide to ‘letting go and letting be,’ while at the same time learning to deal effectively with stress, illness, poor eating habits, and injury, both physical and emotional.”


As we kick the Holiday season into high gear, which seems to start with Halloween, many of us are in a constant state of fight or flight – one of the least healthy places for our sympathetic nervous system.


Mindfulness & Weight Loss


  • “Mindfulness is just a way of keeping yourself present in the moment,” thinking about what is happening without emotion, and then being able to function from a place of action.
  • How can you act consciously and fully around a situation, instead of reacting to it like you normally do?
  • Being aware of how you’re functioning in the world, and how you are making your choices, makes creating a weight loss plan much easier.
  • “The Path to Easy Weight Loss”
  • We should also try to be mindful while we are eating – especially while we are chewing.
