Stress Management Strategies for Adults
An Introduction to Mindfulness
Josh Gansky will lead us on an exploration of ways to better navigate through our busy and stress-filled lives. Mindfulness has been defined as a way of paying attention, fully and with interest, to what is happening in the present moment, without judgment. Mindfulness involves the practice of being aware of the present-moment experience without being preoccupied by stressors and distractions. Self-care is at the heart of everything we do; the way we feel, think, and act. When we care for ourselves, we can be at our best. We can actively make our lives and other people's lives better. Join Josh for an evening of connection, reflection, and self-care.
