Mindfulness and Self Care

Mindfulness is about being aware of the present moment. Learning to be mindful brings numerous benefits. So much so, in fact, that mindfulness training is being done in more and more schools with great results. Even the Apple Health app has a whole section for tracking mindfulness and a list of recommended apps. A quick Google search for “mindfulness apps” brings back a long list of simple, easy programs that almost anyone can try. Here are just a few of the benefits of regular mindfulness practice: may improve grades, fights insomnia and increases sleep, helps problem solving, improves athletic performance, and changes the physical structure of the brain.
