Moody Mindfulness for Resilient Shades

A Holistic Approach to Mental Health for the BIPOC Community

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is paying attention to something on purpose, in the present moment, without judgment.

Mindfulness meditation is a well-established and studied strategy to reduce stress and potentially improve health outcomes.

Advocating for Mental Health, Racial Equality, and Social Justice‚Ä®.

Moody Mindfulness for Resilient Shades is dedicated to promoting racial equality, eliminating mental health stigma in BIPOC communities, and advocating for social justice. Daily acts of racial violence, injustice, and discrimination can affect mental health in ways that can make it hard to get through the day, let alone thrive in the world. Unfortunately, African Americans are less likely to practice mindfulness meditation than other groups, despite the fact that the practice has been shown to be effective at reducing stress and anxiety. This online platform was created to provide an affordable and accessible holistic approach to mental health for the BIPOC community using mindfulness and meditation techniques.

I wish you well!

Hi there, I’m Tracy! I’m a certified mindfulness mediation coach and the owner of Moody Mindfulness for Resilient Shades, LLC and Shades of Resilience Counseling, PLLC. In my opinion, not everyone struggling emotionally needs intensive therapy but still needs support to get through the rough patches. I believe that mindfulness meditation is a powerful tool for healing, growth, and well-being.

Mindfulness meditation isn’t woo-woo, magic, or anything mysterious. Truth be told, for me personally, I don’t promote the use any special pillows or needing to sit in any particular position, because my meditation practices are far from “pretty”, meaning I sometimes cussed and/or have an attitude at the start of my practices but always feel much better afterward.

Thus the name Moody Mindfulness aka Mindful AF…

Moody Mindfulness offers low-cost meditation coaching as an alternative to traditional therapy for individuals who are not in crisis or dysregulated. It is important for individuals to have the ability to self-regulate before beginning any mindfulness meditation practice.

Moody Mindfulness aims to provide techniques for individuals who are hesitant to try therapy, interested in mindfulness meditation or interested in developing new coping skills either independently or in conjunction with traditional therapy.

Mindfulness meditation practice, whether done alone or in a group, is equally effective in improving mood, reducing anxiety and stress, and promoting physical health.

Mental Health Disclaimer: Meditation Practice as a Complementary Tool, not a Replacement for Prescribed Medication or Therapy by a Licensed Professional

We want to emphasize that while meditation practice can be beneficial for mental health, it should be viewed as a complementary tool and not a substitute for prescribed medication or therapy administered by a licensed professional.

  1. Consult a Licensed Professional: If you are experiencing mental health challenges or have been prescribed medication or therapy, it is important to consult with a licensed professional before incorporating meditation into your routine. They will be able to assess your specific needs and provide guidance on how to integrate meditation safely and effectively.

  2. Individual Results Vary: The impacts of meditation practice on mental health can vary greatly from person to person. While some individuals may experience positive effects, others may not. Therefore, it is essential to understand that meditation is not a guaranteed solution for addressing mental health issues.

  3. Not a Replacement for Professional Assistance: Meditation should not be considered a replacement for professional assistance. If you require medication, therapy, or other treatments, it is crucial to continue following the advice and recommendations of your licensed healthcare provider.

  4. Monitoring Progress and Adjustments: If you choose to incorporate meditation into your mental health routine, it is important to monitor your progress and be open to adjusting your approach if needed. Regularly check in with your licensed professional to discuss any changes in your mental health and make necessary adjustments in your treatment plan.

  5. Possible Risks and Precautions: Although meditation is generally considered safe, it is not suitable for everyone. Some individuals may experience discomfort, agitation, or other negative effects. If you experience any unusual or problematic symptoms during meditation, it is essential to stop the practice and seek advice from your licensed professional.

Remember, every individual’s mental health journey is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. Always prioritize your well-being and consult with a licensed professional to ensure you are receiving appropriate care tailored to your specific needs.
