Managing expectations using mindfulness

Pax Tandon, author of Mindfulness Matters

Pax Tandon, an author, producer, wellness advocate and teacher, joins Lisa Bien on Bouncing Back to discuss the destructiveness of expectations in our lives and how we can employ mindfulness as a useful tool to reign them in.

In her efforts to please her parents, she found herself deeply unhappy without knowing why. After she divorced and chose a new career path, she discovered how profoundly expectations had negatively impacted her life.
