Just joking.

By embracing stress reduction, meditation, and a mindful lifestyle, we're not just easing our minds but tweaking our genes

Hey there, Lifesavers! 🛟

Hold your life jackets tight because, thanks to your brilliant feedback, I’m not entirely retiring the "Lifejacket" just yet! Many of you wrote in, but this message stands out, “Lane, don’t go; I want you in my inbox, and I trust you!” All of your encouragement has been the wind in my sails. So a big THANK YOU. It's clear that this little lifejacket of health optimization wisdom is needed more than ever, so I will keep sharing the journey with you. Let’s get it!

The Mindful City With Lane Kennedyy

Speaking of journeys… 😄 You’ve also shown a keen interest in Mindfulness and The Mindful City - and I'm so grateful! Whether you're dipping your toes into mindfulness with the beginner's guide, finding serenity through mindful recovery, or navigating the roadmap to becoming a Mindful City Teacher (sans the marketing hassle) - you've shown there's a thirst for peace in the chaos. 🧘‍♀️✨

If you haven't already, jump over to the Mindful Molecule feature on The Sober Curator: [The Mindful Molecule - How Mindfulness Affects Our Genetic Expression]. It's a thought-provoking read that intertwines mindfulness's tranquility with our DNA's complexities. 🧬

When I utter "Mindful Molecule," it's not just wordplay. It's a philosophy. It's the recognition that we can nudge our genetic destiny in healthier directions through mindfulness. By embracing stress reduction, meditation, and a mindful lifestyle, we're not just easing our minds but tweaking our genes! And there's some serious science backing this up—epigenetics shows us how our behavior and environment influence our gene expression.

Imagine every deep breath and moment of calm, a gentle whisper to your cells, saying, "Hey, let's do this health thing right." That's the kind of molecular conversation I'm encouraging you to have.

It's no secret we're dealing with a global storm of obesity, diabetes, and mental health challenges. So, every time I teach a mindfulness session, even if it's just to a cozy group of two, I'm planting seeds of wellness. Each person carries that seed onward, and, like a dandelion in the wind, the effects spread far and wide. 🌬️🌼


🚨This summer, I’m heading to Texas. Are you on my route? Email me if you want to grab a cup of non-alcoholic joe and chat about life's big questions (or just share a chuckle)! 🚗💨

For a deeper dive into the world of mindfulness in sobriety, here are three books that have been making waves:

Mindfulness and the 12 Steps by Thérèse Jacobs-Stewart

The Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction by Rebecca E. Williams and Julie S. Kraft

Before we part ways, let's lighten the mood with a “Did you know” and a giggle! Did you know that the word "gymnasium" comes from the Greek "gymnos," meaning "naked"? That’s how the ancient Greeks trained - Spartan, indeed!

And now for a chuckle: Why did the scarecrow win an award? Because he was outstanding in his field! 🌾😂

Stay mighty, my friends, and remember, every mindful moment is a step toward a healthier, happier you.

I’m cruising out, listening to Florence and The Machine. What are you listening to these days?

Until next week, your wellness co-pilot 🚀✨
