CHANGE YOUR MIND(FULNESS)

Being present and having mind/body wellness is more integral in life than ever before! MINDFULNESS is a buzzword but don’t underestimate the power of this practice that has been around for hundreds of years.

Our life rarely gives us the skills to enjoy moments; instead, we have allowed our powerful minds to dwell on the past or worry about the future. Dealing with careers, finances, relationships, changes, trauma, grief, or time management undermines our concentration on methods of self-care.

Along with meditation practices (one minute in length to longer), tools will be used to help deal with stressors and gain the mental capacity to be present and be mindful. We will identify the areas of ourselves that have a need for nourishment and be present for such as: mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, professional, and relational. Feel free to bring a pillow, a notebook, and a pen.
