There’s no question: we’re living through one of the most distressing times in recent human history. How are you coping? One of the most effective ways to manage the stress is by practicing mindfulness. Mindfulness is something that everyone is talking about and with good reason.
Mindfulness is simply living in the moment and its health benefits include stress and anxiety reduction, increased focus, lower blood pressure and more. In this Growing Bolder Presents, learn how mindfulness changed the lives of Doro Bush Koch (the daughter and sister of two U.S. presidents) and her sister-in-law Tricia Reilly Koch. They reveal how it led them to a new path in life and inspired them to help others reap the same benefits. Doro Bush Koch also shares how mindfulness led her brother, former President George W. Bush, to his passion for painting.
This informative and thought-provoking session will inspire you to put your mental and spiritual health first and learn how to not just survive but thrive during this global health crisis.
This program is presented by Growing Bolder and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
