Featured Challenge

Mindful Moving and Mindful Eating Challenge (Mar 1. to Mar. 31)

A student practicing mindfulness

In March, challenge yourself to be more mindful about how you move and eat. Mindful movement focuses on your breath and how your body feels when it moves. Mindful eating focuses on how your body physically and emotionally feels when you are eating. Both of these stem from mindfulness practices to be intentionally present in the moment.
