Meditation and mindfulness can relieve stress, improve focus and more. This summer, you can learn the foundations of mindfulness from the comfort of your home.

Learning to be Mindful

Meditation is the practice of intentionally focusing on something (frequently a word or phrase, sounds, or your own breath) to increase awareness of the present moment. Mindfulness is the act of paying attention to the present moment. When we mediate, we are trying to be mindful—much like how when you run, you are trying to exercise.

Mindfulness can help you to live in the moment, which can help you cope with stress and manage your emotions during these trying times.

Health Promotion is offering a free, virtual 4-session introduction to mindfulness. This program will introduce you to belly breathing, dynamic breathing, body scan, walking meditation, guided visualizations, eating meditation and more. No experience or equipment necessary.
