Toward a Mindful Campus

Research on mindfulness suggests that meditation builds resilience, boosts emotional intelligence, enhances creativity, improves your relationships, and helps you focus (Harvard Business Review, 2015).

What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you’re mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience.
