Mindfulness resources

Mindfulness involves bringing our awareness intentionally and without judgment, to what is happening in our bodies, thoughts, emotions and interactions with the external world in the present moment. Our attention often focuses on the past or the future, so we lose sight of the present. Mindfulness practice has been shown to help manage attention, increase productivity and decrease stress and anxiety.

Here are a few resources to help you start experimenting with mindfulness, or grow deeper into your practice.
