Gifts to Yourself: Presents for Presence
Now that the gift giving season to others is officially over, why not think of one additional gift…this one is for you!
With the new year upon us and resolutions at the forefront of our minds, why not consider a commitment to daily mindfulness as YOUR gift? Picking a certain time each day or a daily activity (like tooth brushing) to practice being in the present is the perfect way to ring in 2017. So try it, give yourself presents for presence!
