Creativity, Mindfulness & Well-being
September 28 & 29, 2019
Mindfulness is the ability to stay in the present moment. During this state of mind, you’re relaxed and aware of yourself and your surroundings. We can achieve this during meditation, deep breathing techniques and yoga. Over time, the idea is to improve your overall sense of well-being.
