Positive Habit Development
Habits that support well-being can be a desire and strong intention yet difficult to incorporate into daily life. Through mindfulness practices, it is possible to adjust habits with practices that embrace body awareness, compassion, and breathing techniques.
ADHD & Concussion Recovery
Brains are wired for survival as well as healing. Valuing the way brains are wired or giving it time and space to heal is instrumental in being able to live life with compassionate understanding. Through mind/body awareness tools and breathing practices, healing and focus are supported and enhanced.
Loss & Transition
Life is uncertain and constantly presenting itself with change which may feel overwhelming. Loss and transitions show up in both small and large moments. Using a gentle, kind lens of awareness, supportive skills to maneuver change and loss will support the ability to manage both the expected and unexpected that arrive on the doorsteps.
Choosing to connect meaningfully to the present moment requires juggling many internal and external pulls. Mindfulness practices provide the opportunity to pause, allow clarity to arise, focus on what matters, and respond with meaning to choices and values.
With additional demands on all parents maneuvering the 21st Century, mindfulness skills can offer the opportunity to focus on being present while honoring the desire to be the best parent in the midst of any challenge.
Anxiety & Depression
Mindfulness practices offer an opportunity to recognize, pause with kindness, and choose a different response to thoughts and behaviors that hold one back in familiar loops of worry, regret, or alarm. Step-by-step guidance and support is necessary to understand these patterns in order to live with deeper understanding and ease.
Since the 1970's, data collected through thousands of research studies indicate the tremendous benefits of mindfulness to enhance well-being. Studies done internationally, at medical schools, universities, and national organizations such as the National Institute of Health, have found evidence that the cultivation of mindfulness skills can provide steadiness in the midst of managing internal and external experiences that show up expectedly or unexpectedly in life.
