A free mindfulness workshop is being offered Wednesday, May 6, 2015, by licensed professional counselor Dawn Gaden, of Thriveworks Birmingham Counseling.

Join Dawn for an informative and practical lesson in understanding how stress affects your body and mind. You will take home tools and knowledge that will help you to begin incorporating mindfulness in everything you do every day!

Discussion topics will include:

  • What is mindfulness and how do I use it
  • How does keeping my attention on the present moment really affect my health
  • Practice a simple meditation technique that tunes you into your body’s aches and pains, and learn what that means for your mental health
  • Learn how food and eating habits affect your mood
  • Learn how exercise is truly your free antidepressant (with only happy side effects!)
  • Optional: dress comfortably and we will practice gentle yoga poses that help you stay grounded and clear headed throughout your day (get rid of the fog!!)
