COVID-19 is effecting the mental health of people all around the world in some very significant ways. During these incredibly difficult times (an understatement) for so many of us, a skill that I’ve found to be especially helpful is that of mindfulness. What’s mindfulness? According to Jon Kabat-Zinn, mindfulness is “the awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally.”  When we’re practicing mindfulness, rather than worrying about the future or dwelling in the past, we’re fully in the present moment.

There’s a great deal of evidence that mindfulness practices benefit both our emotional and physical health and so I’ve decided to provide a list of some excellent mindfulness resources where you can learn everything you need to learn about what/why/and how to practice mindfulness.
