Mary Martin had always been very health conscious, making sure she ate right and stayed in shape. But several years ago, she had a miscarriage at five months’ pregnant, although she didn’t know she was pregnant at the time. The experience helped her learn that from an emotional standpoint, she wasn’t really present in her body. She came to realize what it was like to truly be a human being, not simply a human doing.
Now she focuses on teaching advisors about taking care of their own wellbeing through personal considerations and building connections with others.
In this episode, WealthManagement.com Managing Editor Diana Britton speaks with Mary Martin, Ph.D., mindfulness educator and author of “Mindfulness for Financial Advisors,” on being human in a technological world and how being mindful of your emotional and mental wellbeing is just as essential as your physical wellbeing.
- How she developed her passion for teaching advisors about mindfulness
- How her realization of not truly living in her body changed her routine
- The biggest hurdles to getting advisors on board with her teachings
- How advisors can better handle the anxiety, stress and emotions of clients
