Counseling TidBits

Lent is a time for spiritual growth and renewal. During this time of reflection, we can also set aside time to examine our mindfulness and emotional regulation. According to "The Power of Mindfulness" from the Child Mind Institute, mindfulness "helps to manage anxiety... as well as stress-reduction and self-regulation." For the complete article from the Child Mind Institute please click here.
