  • Mindfulness Resources

    When practicing mindfulness, you may be encouraged to become curious and to notice the sensations that are happening in your body, what emotion(s) you are experiencing, and to identify the thoughts that may be flowing through your mind.  As you first begin your journey with mindfulness you may feel awkward or struggle to find the words to describe your experience. This may be your first experience being asked or giving yourself permission and time to turn your attention inward.  To help get started with your practice, some examples are listed below.  It is not a complete list and there are no right or wrong responses to the mindfulness prompts.  Hope this helps you kick start your practice and enjoy becoming curious.
