This is a difficult time for us all. We are sharing a mindfulness exercise daily to help those interested to take a moment to decompress and regain focus. If you have a tip or exercise to share with the community, please email me at email@example.com.
This week, we have a series of suggestions from Tara Martello, a meditation and mindfulness coach based in Philadelphia. “Fear, stress, and panic can lead to unhealthy distractions like food, alcohol, and technology binges. Instead of self-medicating with unhealthy habits, take the extra time you have in your day to start a mindfulness meditation practice,” advises Martello. Stay grounded exercise: Take a seat or stand still and feel your feet on the ground. Imagine them connected to roots that are firmly planting you into the earth. Enjoy the feeling of strength and grounding that follows.
