Radically Loved® with Rosie Acosta

Hello Friends, I’m Rosie Acosta. I am a Meditation Teacher; Speaker and Author of You Are Radically Loved: A healing journey to self-love. I grew up in East Los Angeles during the 92 La Riots and it set me on a troubled path for many years. I didn’t grow up with mentors in my life, so I turned to reading as many books as I possibly could to learn about life’s purpose. In my journey as a First Gen-Mexican American, I found having these conversations gave me insight, support, and inspiration. So, I decided to create a place where I could share these conversations with my community. The Radically Loved Podcast was born! How do we create a radically loved life? Come have a sit with me so we can discover all things mindfulness, spirituality, self-love, and overall healthy living. Please be sure to share the episodes that you love and also leave us a review!

Mental health issues were often deemed insignificant when compared to the list of other concerns we were bombarded with. Emotions and sentiments from unfortunate circumstances were often discouraged, portraying our natural feelings as a sign of weakness. However, the pandemic has proven otherwise. The anxiety and distress caused by our current situation emphasize the importance of mental well-being to our overall health. Mental health matters.
In this episode of Radically Loved, Sarah McDevitt highlights challenges in meditation and provides ways to overcome them. She discusses the tactile technique you can use to anchor yourself in the present. Lastly, she shares how she changed her perspective on mental health when she realized its impact on society.

Episode Highlights
Sarah’s Journey in Physical and Mental Health
●Sarah grew up playing sports and focusing on physical fitness.
●After a few years of working, she started experiencing anxiety. Without understanding the mental constraint she felt, she merely forced herself to push through.
●She was later introduced to meditation, and it helped her realize the importance of mental and emotional health in our daily routine.
●Mental health is a foundation of our society’s everyday life.
What is Core?
●Core is a handheld device that connects to an app for meditation and breathing exercises.
●It can give biofeedback to help you gauge the effects of different techniques. It also helps build consistency as you practice meditation.
●Some people need a kinesthetic experience to ground themselves. Core can serve as an anchor to the present moment during meditation.
●The Yoga Sutras Patañjali are philosophical texts that mention the ways to have a single-pointed focus. This includes having an affirmation, mantra, visual, or tactile focus.
Core’s Beginnings
●Core was launched before the pandemic.
●Despite the negative impacts of the pandemic, there is also an increase in awareness of mental health. Many people have started asserting its essence to our overall wellness.
●Meditation focuses on building resilience and flexibility to help you through difficult times.
Sarah’s Vision for Core
●Distractions could hinder us from mindfulness practices. With Core, we can have a physical reminder for our daily meditation practice.
●Although Sarah’s meditation studio was closed due to the pandemic, she still hopes to give people a space to practice focus and mindfulness.
●She saw the impact of meditation practices on mental and physical health.
●The biofeedback in the Core provides self-awareness during meditation.
●The data gathered from the app delivers a further understanding of your body and mind in cultivating healthier life practices.
The Importance of Mental Health for the Youth
●Sarah worked to bring meditation practices into high school classrooms, and the students found the exercise enjoyable.
●Teenagers often seek independence and control for their peace of mind.
●Short-term survival or health is what teenagers usually prioritize since they feel that determining their own longevity is out of their control.
●Meditation grants them the moment of authority within their own life.
●It’s good to start meditation practices at a young age, because the practice has numerous mental and physical health benefits.
The Future of Core
●Core is open to hearing what it is that people need.
●They can be reached through email and LinkedIn
●Core Mind Technology has been incorporated into Hyperice.
●They’re continuously innovating and improving their app.
5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode
[03:54] Sarah McDevitt: “If we don't think of mental health as the foundational element of our being, everyday life, and our society, we're just ignoring something that affects every single thing that we do.”
[06:20] Sarah McDevitt: “We just really wanted to build something that brought together science and research, ancient traditions, and new technology to help people be consistent with meditation and breath training.”
[13:11] Sarah McDevitt: “One of the hardest things about the last few years is the ambiguity. There's been so much not knowing, and it's hard to plan ahead in your life. It's hard to have these kinds of things to look forward to if you can't plan ahead.”
[19:52] Sarah McDevitt: “There are so many reasons that you could have for meditation. From things that are impossible to measure, like spirituality, connection, communication, or patience. But then there are also physiological effects that we can measure.”
[26:15] Sarah McDevitt: “[Teenagers] don't necessarily feel that they have the control to impact their long-term health. Or the capacity to get there, think about that, or prioritize that. One of the things that meditation can do is help anyone feel like they have that moment of control within their own life.”
