"Mindfulness meditation is a form of present moment awareness," Neda Gould, Ph.D., associate director of the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Anxiety Disorders Clinic and head of a mindfulness program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, told the institution. "It's about paying attention in the present moment — to what is here — in a nonjudgmental way without fixating on the past or dwelling on the future."
This Was Her Go-To Breakfast
This was once her go-to breakfast: "Every morning I have a parfait. It's 0 percent nonfat Greek yogurt, walnuts, raspberries and agave," she told People. She also liked a touch of the unhealthy food. "I love pasta! Italian food – it's my jam!"
She Helped Others Through a Darker Time During Quarantine
"This year has been really weird, for so many different reasons," she told People in 2020. "Obviously the pandemic has thrust us into isolation and for me, I definitely need human connections to feel normal. So I hope 'Rise And Shine' is one of those songs that gives them hope and lets people know, 'Hey, through the darkest times we can get through it and we can find meaning in those times and really use it to our advantage.'"
This is How She's Worked Out in the Past
"I try to find the nearest gym and I run for half an hour. I run two miles and then I do sprints and then I do FaceTime" with her trainer, she told People.
This Was Once Her "One Workout"
Years ago, Pope told Self that if she could only do one workout, she'd "Use the Pilates Reformer machine. I've never seen such incredible results as I did when I was going to classes every week. It's harder now that I'm on the road—I can't always find a place!" Back then she said she can't stop moving when "Any Shania Twain song comes on…. Her music is always so uplifting and empowering."
She is a Work in Progress
"I've continued to put the work into learning more about how things follow us and traumas stay in our bodies," she says. "My main thing is really being able to name what I'm feeling and what is factual and what is a story I'm telling myself. Most of the time, the lack of self-worth and the lack of confidence are stories that I'm telling myself. So it's definitely a journey and it's still something I struggle with, but at least now I have the tools to talk myself out of it," she told People.
