More and more people, young and old and from all walks of life, are “stopping to smell the roses” through the ancient practice of mindfulness. There is something fundamentally sane about getting off the treadmill of busyness. We explore an alternative–just simply being with ourselves and our surroundings–and body and mind begin to synchronize.

As we become familiar with the practice, we discover that the tools of mindfulness can help us navigate rough waters–even the most difficult circumstances in our lives. When we are holding back out of fear, waking up and paying attention to what’s actually going on instead of mechanically panicking and reacting, can help break the logjam. When we are impulsive, pausing can forestall thoughtless action. At any moment, we can take a break and appreciate our circumstances.
