Mindfulness Based Practice
Mindfulness is such an important aspect of self care and connecting to the present moment. Often we can become stuck in the events of the past or feel like we need to figure everything out at once and get stuck in trying to predict the future. Mindfulness can help to shift from the “doing” mode to just “being” present in the moment helping to calm our minds, bodies, and whole nervous system.
Anxiety, Stress, and Depression
It is not uncommon to experience some amount of stress, anxiety or low mood from time to time. However, if our stress, anxiety, or low mood last and start to affect our daily lives you may need additional support to unpack what you may be struggling with. Therapy can help improve coping skills and ability to manage your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Cultivating healthy habits are important in living healthy balanced lives.
