THRIVERS: Intro to Mindfulness
June 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
We all know that HIV is now a manageable chronic illness and adhering to our medications and staying in care is the first step to a healthy and fulfilling future. But to truly thrive with HIV, we must also care for our social, emotional, financial, spiritual, and personal wellness. THRIVERS is a monthly discussion group for people impacted by HIV that relies on the personal expertise within our communities to help one another get the most out of life and to take advantage of the opportunities before us. Come thrive with us!
This month, we’ll be talking about mindfulness and ways that we can get more in touch with our thoughts, feelings, and the world around us. Mindfulness is a practice of focusing our attention on the present and accepting our experiences. It has been shown to reduce stress and improve one’s overall physical and mental health. We’ll learn techniques for developing greater mindfulness and identify ways of working the practice into our daily lives.
