Guide to Mindfulness

In the age of speed and urgency, we are choosing to step back into flow and allowance. Our bodies are in a state of fight or flight, increasing our stress hormones and weakening our immune systems. Mindfulness is an every day practice that brings about a sense of inner peace and calm. Being mindful is more about undoing then doing, and we have joined together our favorite mindfulness tools for creating a life that is conscious and purposeful.

Inhale the good. Exhale the stale. 
Trust the flow of your breath.

Notice how each moment tastes, smells, feels, sounds, and looks
 
Let Go
