Mindfulness and Free Glitter Jars It is believed that the human has between 60,000 – 80,000 thoughts a day, and that doesn’t include all the feelings that usually accompany thoughts. This isn’t necessarily helpful when you’re trying to manage school and other responsibilities. You’ll learn how practicing mindfulness can assist in concentration, emotional wellness and general well-being. Creation of personal glitter jars will be used as a metaphor to better understand mindfulness. Guided mindfulness and meditation practice will be included. Please dress comfortably.
