Mindfulness focuses on our natural ability to be present in our current moment and our present thoughts and behaviors. This helps us to not focus on past or future events and be in a more calm, relaxed state.
In fact, mindfulness can be one of the most effective approaches to self care and relaxation. At C&PS, we have a program that many students utilize for this, Everyday Mindfulness and Meditation.
