"Its All in the Mind"

When you know what's happening in your head or the things around you and you don't get carried away by it like getting angry, or frustrated but rather you just respond in a calm wise manner, you are being mindful. Mindfulness can help us regulate our emotions, decrease stress and anxiety, and make better decisions. In this newsletter you will find several different ways to help you, your children and your entire family manage your mind!
