Mindfulness Matters: We live in a fast paced society in which we’re expected to juggle many responsibilities with expediency and efficiency. This can be exhausting. Research shows that when we incorporate mindfulness into our routines (cultivate attention to and awareness of the present moment), we are actually more productive, well balanced, and healthy individuals. Practicing mindfulness teaches us that slowing the mind and focusing our attention is within our sphere of control. The tools to do so are already within us. We simply need to cultivate them. We can choose how we interact with and engage with each moment of our lives, and we can do so with intention.
