Why Mindfulness in Veterinary Medicine?
Mindfulness is cultivating present moment awareness. It is about your ability to notice your thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations in the moment that is unfolding right now with a sense of curiosity. For decades there has been peer-reviewed scientific research on the impact of mindfulness, and new research is emerging on mindfulness in veterinary medicine!
Across the scientific literature, it has been found that engaging in mindfulness can:
Help us build increased resilience to stress, reduce our emotional reactivity, and lessen our inflammatory response to psychological stressors
Create measurable changes in brain regions associated with memory, sense of self, empathy, and stress

“Wow, Veterinarians could really use that. You should help us.”
My friend courageously shared this during a random encounter on his Tuesday afternoon off at a local coffee shop after learning about my research and teaching on mindfulness. His vulnerability changed my life.
I apply the science of mindfulness to support well-being in the veterinary community by creating
evidence-based approaches to help you easily integrate mindfulness into your daily life.
Please join me in exploring the many ways that mindfulness can support veterinary medicine.
Let's be the change together.
