WHAT IS MINDFULNESS

A non-judgemental awareness of what you feel and sense in the moment. 

WHY BE MINDFUL

Mindfulness has many health benefits. It may help you focus, cope with stress, improve your relationships, and boost your memory. 

HOW TO PRACTICE MINDFULNESS

  1. Begin your morning with a list of 5 things you are thankful for. Be detailed!
  2. Go for a 10 minute walk and notice all the smells, sounds, and sights around you. Look for animals and rocks. What is the weather like?
  3. Find a comfortable sitting or standing position. For 5 minutes, concentrate on your breathing. Deep inhale (3 seconds), hold your breath (2 seconds), long exhale (4 seconds). 

Community Library Project:

Through submitting something dear to you–a recipe, artwork, story, poem, or anything you can think of–we hope to convey a sense of connection during this time of isolation. Please make your submission: https://forms.gle/QVuUJKKLsDFDF1A36
