ADDITIONAL RESOURCES FOR LEARNING MORE ABOUT MINDFULNESS
Strengthen your ability to show up to more moments of your life with kindness and presence by experimenting with 2 or more minutes of formal mindfulness practice each morning. To start practicing mindfulness ASAP, check out headspace's free intro to mindfulness meditation "10 minutes a day for 10 days".
After that free trial ends, if you want to continue on the free app route, the app Insight Timer is phenomenal. It has a simple meditation timer as well as guided meditations by excellent teachers. Get into mindful posture, notice your breath at your anchor, and whenever your mind inevitably wanders, gently return your awareness to your breath.
The online mindfulness class called “Mindfulness Fundamentals” through Mindful Schools is another fantastic option.
