A lot of the maladies and stress responses that we suffer today are actually manageable. Nature is a natural healer and yet in our busyness we become more and more disconnected from the source of our healing, from noticing the small moments of wonder around us. Landscapes, trees, flowers, animals, rivers, oceans have the ability to sooth and to heal.
Mindfulness skills help us to focus our attention when we are overwhelmed by strong emotions. It can help with how we cope with everyday life or deal with tough times, and there are great benefits for our physical and mental health.
