Introduction to Mindfulness

Written by Carol Schwartz, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Cure JM Leadership Council

Intro to Mindfulness was a brief look into the concept of Mindfulness and a few mindful exercises. One definition of mindfulness is maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. We discussed how mindfulness can be used for stress reduction and staying present.
