The Mindfulness for Warriors Handbook

By

Coping with the Stress of First Responder Life

“…a work of major importance that offers practical approaches to self-care and serenity for our first responders...” —Louise Harmon, author of Happiness from A to Z

#1 New Release in Military Families

The Mindfulness for Warriors Handbook is a new and expanded edition of Mindfulness for Warriors, providing an additional valuable resource for first responders.

Ensuring their heads are in a healthy place is crucial. After 30 years in law enforcement, Kim Colegrove’s husband took his own life. This agonizing experience opened her eyes to the desperate need for an effective form of stress-relief and support for first responders like cops and EMTs facing trauma.

A traumatic way of life. First responders have the incredibly difficult job of running toward danger while the rest of us run away. No training prepares them for what they see and endure. Kim understands what it’s like to watch someone go through that and is dedicated to helping first responders.

A source of hope. In 2017, Kim founded The PauseFirst Project: Mindfulness for First Responders. She offers the PauseFirst block of training to organizations across the country; teaching techniques that help reduce stress, regulate emotion, and improve overall health and well-being. Her work to bring awareness is a tribute to both her husband and the countless other first responders struggling with the realities of their jobs.

Inside find:

  • Evidence-based practices to help first responders and families deal with stress
  • Interviews with first responders who share stories of overcoming, surviving, and thriving
  • Colegrove’s own raw and intimate story of her husband’s troubles and how she continues each day fighting in his memory

If you’ve found encouragement from books like Bulletproof Spirit, Bullets in the Washing Machine, or I Love a Cop, you’ll find a further source of healing in The Mindfulness for Warriors Handbook.
