Hi all! I am an intern from Dominican University. While this year has been a little different, I still feel like I'm learning so much. I have two pets! A turtle named Manzana and a lizard named Fresa, that I love dearly. I really enjoy eating new food from other cultures and learning about new cultures. I'm looking forward to working with all of you as the school year moves forward.

What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is simply… noticing what is happening right now.
Mindfulness is taking notice of how your body feels and what you see, smell and taste. Maybe you even feel emotions in your body, perhaps through a tightness somewhere, or a good sensation.
Mindfulness is also noticing what your mind is doing.
How can it help you?
Try Mindful Listening
1. HALT….. Halt whatever you are doing and offer your full attention.
2. ENJOY ….. Enjoy a breath as you choose to receive whatever is being communicated to you—wanted or unwanted.
3. ASK ….. Ask yourself if you really know what they mean and if you don’t, ask for clarification. Instead of making assumptions, bring openness and curiosity to the interaction. You might be surprised at what you discover.
4. REFLECT….. Reflect back to them what you heard. This tells them that you were really listening.
