Less is More: Slow Down & Connect

Rachael Lewinski, Director of Wellness & Marketing

This week's practice is inspired by a brief yet profound article Two Keys for Living Slowly and Connected by Danae Smith of This Wondrous Life. The simplicity of these two pieces truly demonstrates a "Less is More" philosophy that can help us slow down and connect more deeply to ourselves and our lives.

Nourishing Healthy Habits with Mindfulness

Rachael Lewinski, Director of Wellness & Marketing

Let's take a moment to practice being mindful of our ways of thinking, habits, emotional responses, and relationships. When we take time to slow down and reflect on the way we react to things in our lives, it can give us better insight into whether we want to continue these habits that may produce unwanted and unhealthy results.

Freedom comes with Mindfulness

Freedom is on our minds these days as we come out of our very unique 4th of July 2020 weekend this year. It inspired me to reflect upon how mindfulness encourages freedom within our minds, bodies, and lives.

Dealing with Difficult Emotions

Trisha Erpelding, Director of Education & Advocacy

For many of us, it can be hard to find time to fit mindfulness practice into our day. Add in the difficult emotions and experiences that life gives us, and it can seem downright impossible to practice staying in the present moment. Who wants to stop and be present with tough emotions? Why would we want to face the feelings that we try so hard not to think about when life hands us a painful moment?
