FREE UPCOMING MINDFULNESS WORKSHOP


Mindfulness is a topic you may have heard a lot about in the news lately and recent research has shown the physical and mental benefits of practicing mindfulness on a daily basis.  Benefits include lower stress, anxiety, and depression, improved concentration and focus, better emotional regulation and better overall health and well-being.  These benefits also apply to a trend you may have heard about called nature bathing.  I have links to articles at the bottom of this message.

Many of us want to be more mindful, but we don’t exactly know what it is or how to practice it.  I’ve put together a short introductory ‘seminar’ designed to help you understand mindfulness and how you might apply it to your life.  This seminar is absolutely free and it is open to anyone. 

The seminar will be held Saturday, October 13th from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. near Katie’s Woods (1899 Katie’s Woods Loop) in Grapevine.  We will combine the activity of being in nature with the techniques of mindfulness while we take a short walk in the woods.  We will travel about .5 - 1 mile (at the most) so dress comfortably and wear closed toe shoes.

The workshop is free, but RSVP is required by Thursday, October 11th.   You can RSVP to me at 214-208-9460 or sjustitz@gmail.com   I look forward to seeing you there.

 
In case you are interested in reading more, I’ve included a couple articles on mindfulness and nature bathing.
