Mindfulness Mondays 2021 @8:30am

Mindfulness is taking a break over the summer. Check-out our recorded sessions and scripts.  See you in the fall 2021. 

Join Denise and Shannon from CMHA  Shuswap-Revelstoke every Monday morning to practice Mindfulness from 8:30am-9am.

Start your week with a little self-compassion by paying attention to the present moment.

Remembering to take a pause to bring our attention to the present moment can make a big difference in our lives and to those around us. Mindfulness is a tool we can use to get more life satisfaction as we navigate through some of our feelings, thoughts or body sensations with more ease. Mindfulness when practiced regularly can help us be less reactive to our busy worlds and busy minds.

Some of the health benefits may include: lower stress, lower anxiety, protection against depression, improved blood pressure, improved sleep, and improved concentration.

We invite you to join us for these Monday morning sessions to practice mindfulness.  Everyone is welcome. You have the option to join us by video or telephone. Join by:

Building trust reduces our fears.  There are many types of trust but the essential category is trusting ourselves and our abilities.  When we trust ourselves we free ourselves from the limiting stories that prevent us from achieving our goals.  We may not have all the skills necessary in this moment to handle what comes our way but trusting that we can learn what we need to learn allows us to propel ourselves into the future with confidence.
