This coming Wednesday at 6, counselors Melanie Rosen and Grace Ecton from the Rutgers Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology Hope & Healing Project will be talking to us about the benefits of mindfulness and how we can incorporate mindfulness and other coping skills into our daily lives to help reduce levels of stress and to live more in the present.
Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens. It also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them—without believing, for instance, that there’s a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment. When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future.
So if you’re available to join us on Wednesday at 6 to learn more about mindfulness and how it can improve your life, please RSVP to [email protected] by Tuesday eve and we'll send on an invitation to our Zoom.
