Mindfullness Spotlight: This Too shall Pass

We invite you to take 3 belly breaths. Ah, how did that feel for just 3 seconds to only focus on one thing, your breath? Our breath centers us and provides focus.

Mindfulness Spotlight: Message to all of us

What an experience! Each of us is creating our new normal. Extra time at home brings up different emotions for all of us. Maybe some joy in the novelty. Maybe some stress in having kids home more often without a routine. Maybe mixed feelings about extra family time. Maybe a sadness for missing events. Maybe angry about  being temporarily out of work. Maybe overwhelmed because you are a health care or emergency service provider. Or maybe hopeful for humanity as you witness folks reaching out to each other and new ways. Most likely a mix of throughout a day! Whatever you are feelings it’s ok!
