Using Mindfulness in Everyday Life

Mindfulness has been shown to significantly reduce burnout, stress and anxiety.  This session will help participants better understand what mindfulness is and how to access it.  In the following videos, Mandy Doria and Emily Hemendinger will discuss ways to practice easy-to-use tools and strategies for how to be more present, navigate complex situations, and create capacity through green choice behaviors such as mindful eating, mindful movement, and body gratitude. For additional information and mindfulness and body gratitude exercises, refer to pages 21-27 from the Toolkit, as well as recordings listed below.
