Mindfulness can be described as awareness with intention. The goal is to become aware of the inner workings of our mental, emotional and physical processes. The benefits are numerous: from helping you to relax, be calmer, reduce stress and anxiety to improving concentration and focus.
There are many ways to be more mindful and find inner connection; from meditation and yoga, joining a community group, learning a language or new skill. There are several things to try in the Claremont community this May.
