Mindfulness in Real Life

Shayla Collins shares mindfulness practices that can be woven into a daily routine as opposed to added to it. This is Mindfulness is Real Life. How one connects with their mindfulness is personal and it should be customized to fit their needs. These accessible practices and accompanying coping strategies can be used to support your overall well being as well as that of the individuals and families you engage with.

Mindfulness can help us to build resilience and compassion for ourselves and others. Homelessness and housing service providers show up every day to help care for and support your clients and colleagues. This essential work helps keep people healthy and safe. Learn skills that will help you build resilience and explore ways to care for yourself. 

This training serves two purposes; an opportunity for direct service providers to slow down, pause, and take a much needed break and to develop mindfulness practices. Learn what type of mindfulness works for you, practice different techniques, and build skills that you can integrate into your busy day.
