In 5 Key Lessons from Mindfulness for Warriors by Kim Colegrove, I share the top 5 most impactful lessons I learned from reading Mindfulness for Warriors. Kim Colegrove, Founder of Pause First Academy wrote this book after her husband committed suicide as a way to help other First Responders and military Veterans.
The book is impactful and easy to read. The book is organized into three primary sections. The first section is called “Warrior”. In “Warrior” the reader learns more about Kim and her husband David’s suicide and its impact on those around them. The next section is called “Weight”. Here the reader is given tools that help regulate their emotions, stress, and trauma. In the last section, “Wisdom”, Kim shares the “how” for mindfulness, meditation, and breath work.
Listen and Read the Book
