We’re all feeling anxious right now. Trust me, it is a natural and logical response to these days that are difficult to navigate through. I just want to encourage you all to be strong, mindful, loving and kind in the midst of all that's going on.
During times like these it is evident how connected we are. We feed off the media and each other as well as our own fears that are hard to put in words. This can lead to different stress that may cause some anxiety.
Research has shown that mindfulness helps us reduce anxiety and depression. We know that mindfulness allows us to interrupt automatic, reflexive fight, flight, or freeze reactions—reactions that can lead to anxiety, fear and worry. Being more mindful is something we can all achieve. It's about living in the present moment and fully paying attention to our everyday experiences, both good and bad, rather than dwelling on the past or daydreaming about the future. To simply cultivate a present moment of awareness that enables you to live a life that is more awake, connected and true.
It's important to have a mindful practice to help through those difficult times. We would like to help you to develop your own practice at your own pace with an emphasis to cultivate a spirit of love and kindness to the moments throughout your life. We want to give you the tools to be reflective instead of reactive to life itself.
