Real Life Mindfulness
Have you ever been halfway through a shower, and suddenly noticed you can’t remember whether you’ve already added conditioner? Or when traveling on a familiar road, have you ever arrived at your destination without remembering any of the drive? If you’ve experienced this, you are not alone. A Harvard study found nearly 47% of the time, the average adult American is not paying attention to what they are doing – and the title of this study is “A Wandering Mind Is Not A Happy Mind”, (Killingsworth and Gilbert, 2010). Practicing mindfulness has been found to diminish symptoms of anxiety, depression, insomnia, and physical pain, as well as increase focus, concentration, and memory. Join Anna DeLong, LCSW, a licensed therapist and Mindfulness Teacher to learn Mindfulness basics as well as ways simple ways you can begin to practice Mindfulness in your day to day life.
