WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?

Mindfulness is being aware of your present moment experiences with openness, curiosity, and a willingness to be with what is.

Mindfulness isn't just about being more present in your life, it's about HOW you are present in your life.  Being present without judgment and simply noticing things as they are is what mindfulness is all about. 

Mindfulness teaches you how to accept yourself as you are, which creates more joy in your life and fewer feelings of shame or not being "good enough."

 

Mindfulness also helps you manage stressful events with a calmer approach and more capacity to make thoughtful decisions rather than reactive ones.
