Do you feel stressed during the day? Are you ready for a boost of mindfulness to get you back on track? Can you use a few moments to recharge? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, consider a wellness break practicing mindfulness with Jen Burnett. Mindfulness is a self-care practice that we all can benefit from.
