Perhaps you wonder how mindfulness helps in these unusual times of Covid19.
We don’t know what the future holds, but then we never did. This is mindfulness in action; the habits and assumptions we’ve perhaps always made, we now realise were never certainties. Mindfulness invites us to be present and not take things for granted.
We’re collectively experiencing lessons in realising that there never was any certainty and the best we can do is trust, surrender, be kind and create joy around us.
So I’ve collated 8 Place of Serenity Blog Posts which address different aspects of the wide-ranging topic we call ‘mindfulness’. Whatever your experiences are right now, I hope these ideas indicate how mindfulness helps you at this time of Covid19. Do forward on to others if you think it may help them too!
