During this period of history, where fear appears to be everywhere, it can be beneficial to remember to turn away from fear and back toward joy. Begin to spread happiness throughout your day, because it is just as contagious as some of those negative emotions.
Jon Kabat-Zinn, one of the foremost mindfulness experts, shares, “Mindfulness means moment-to-moment, non-judgmental awareness. It is cultivated by refining our capacity to pay attention, intentionally, in the present moment, and then sustaining that attention over time as best we can. In the process, we become more in touch with our life as it is unfolding.”
