Your Daily Break

A dash of Mindfulness-based SEL for each day of the week!

Welcome to the Week of March 30th!

As we move into our third week at home, we are hoping everyone has settled into a healthy, natural routine. This week we're offering a few fun finds to help keep your schedule interesting. We continue to hold you all in our hearts and will continue to bring you small doses of mindfulness and SEL for each day of the week to keep us present during these challenging times.

Thank you for staying strong, grounded, and present!
