When stress occurs in our lives, we often go on auto-pilot making easy choices that can be harmful to our health and wellness in the long run. Mindfulness practice is an alternative solution that increases our awareness of the present and helps us cope with stress and change in our lives.

What is Mindfulness?

 “Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way:

On purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.”      

Jon Kabat-Zinn

According to The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center mindfulness practice can complement medical treatment to help reduce anxiety, chronic pain, depression, insomnia and stress.
