Mindfulness is the study of becoming aware of the present moment and bringing your attention to what is going on in your mind and your body in each moment. This awareness gives you the power to choose what to do with your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as they present themselves as well as what to do with the stress and negativity in your life. If you find that you struggle with stress and anxiety, or you become easily irritated or frustrated, then mindfulness could be a very beneficial and empowering practice for you. Through Megan's classes, you can expect to learn easy and practical ways to achieve mindfulness and to cope much more effectively with the ups and downs of daily life.
