Relax and learn a bit about mindfulness!
Twenty years ago I started learning about meditation. Sitting still and doing nothing was (and still is) hard for me. But I found I did like how I felt afterward. I’ve since learned that there are lots of ways to get that centered, calm feeling of mindfulness. Thích Nhất Hạnh teaches us that simple, daily activities, such as washing dishes, can be an opportunity to find peace and be present in the moment.

The first, an “Introduction to Abdominal Breathing” is meant to be a quick relaxation, guiding you through deep, relaxing breaths. Try it out!
