Take 5 Moments
Reflections from participants on the Mindfulness Challenge this month
"In a difficult work situation, I became aware of my anxiety level rising quickly and, after practicing Take 5, felt markedly less stressed."
"Taking a few minutes to myself throughout the day allows me to re-center and focus much more effectively. What a great feeling!"
"Going through this training helps reduce not just mental, but physical stress. It also helps me think clearer and reminds me to be a better person, which allows me to be happier."
