Mindfulness or How to Respond to Life Challenges in More Positive Ways
In today's world, we are constantly pulled away from the present moment. Almost without awareness, we're universally distracted from what we are doing. Instead of pausing to respond mindfully and appropriately to situations, many of us simply react. These reactive responses often give rise to perceived threat, misunderstandings, hostility, and violence. "Mindfulness in Life" is an introduction to mindfulness skills. These skills help counter the pull of negativity and provide a basic framework for responding to life in a new more positive way.
