Mindfulness

Practicing mindfulness is one way to relieve any anxiety or stress that you, your family members, or children may be facing in these times of uncertainty. Meditating, taking a walk in nature, or just taking a moment to breathe are some mindfulness techniques that can help you feel more calm and present in the moment.

Mindfulness can also help children combat stress and boost their attentiveness as they adapt to new ways of learning.

YMCA provides these resources to help you stay well in body and mind.
