Mindfulness: Being Present is the Gift

In a season where there’s usually more than enough to do, we find ourselves living history with challenges all around us.  We are grateful for colleagues who joined us for 30 minutes of mindfulness during our Annual Extension Conference, online 2020. This page will share some links related to the short mindfulness practices we experienced during the session.

The premise of the winter session was “if I only have …. a short amount of time” to practice mindfulness, what can I do? We encourage individuals to create a routine and habit to practice mindfulness on a daily basis and it can also fit in throughout the day.
