Daily Inspiration * Meditation Made Easy * Joyful Journaling * Live Your Best Life
The global pandemic has inspired people to find new ways to deal with the unparalleled levels of stress and anxiety they are experiencing, and reevaluate their lives, and ultimately figure out what is most important to them. The answer to both is MINDFULNESS. Each week in our 52-Week Mindfulness Planner introduces practices that will help get you through the upcoming year with serenity and grace, including simple meditation, yoga, breathing and gratitude exercises; body scans; affirmations; and journaling, coloring and drawing prompts. By the end, readers will have a “toolbox” of techniques that will help them to stay calm and carry on, whatever the new year may bring.
