Infusing Mindfulness Practices Into Your Everyday Routine

Practice several mindfulness/meditation methods that help students slow down and take a minute when things get really busy and overwhelming throughout the week; being able to identify personal stressors and having a plan of how to meet them head-on (e.g., if your heart races when you have several tasks to do within a single day, try grounding techniques that allow you to focus on and slow down your breathing; journaling)
