The Gift of Presence: Creating a Sustainable Mindfulness Practice Plan for Women
The biggest challenge to deriving benefit from a mindfulness practice is doing it every day, which requires breaking the entrenched habits that take us off track. For most women, that means finding new and creative responses to the nonstop distractions and demands converging from our work, families, friends, and even online relationships. How do we overcome the obstacles to taking the time we need for ourselves? This isn’t just another feel good workshop—it’s an opportunity to create a custom mindfulness plan that you can sustain on a daily basis. Discover how to:
- Get off autopilot, pause more often, and stop multitasking
- Figure out what has meaning for you right now, and recognize the importance of formal and informal mindfulness practices
- Avoid getting caught up in unrealistic expectations, such as “doing it all, all at once”
- Appreciate the ways in which you may already be infusing everyday moments with mindfulness or presence
