Getting Started with Mindfulness: A Quick Guide for Beginners

Many people come to find mindfulness when they are experiencing a crisis in life. Grief, nonstop stress, the loss of a job, a new medical diagnosis…these are all common reasons why people think, “there must be a better way to get through the day.” 

Mindfulness can help. Starting right now can help you lower anxiety, decrease your blood pressure, develop clearer thoughts, and regulate your mood.

Making mindfulness a practice every day, even when you have a good day, can help you manage the crisis of a bad day so much easier.
