Lots of us think about trying mindfulness meditation, but it can be hard to know where to begin. I’ll show you how to start, feel better, reduce your stress, and enjoy your life a little more.

What is Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you're mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience.

People have been meditating for thousands of years. But while the practice is not new, science is just catching up to its benefits. Recent studies show meditation and mindfulness can have a positive impact on stress, anxiety, focus, creativity and even relationships. I’ll teach you how to meditate, what you do with it is up to you.
