If you’re finding it difficult to wind down, decompress, or relax, mindfulness and meditation techniques may be right for you! Mindfulness refers to being present in the moment, noticing one’s surroundings and inner experience as the moment is happening. Mindfulness draws you away from anxious thoughts about the past and future, allowing you to be a part of the present more fully.
