If asked to explain the value of mindfulness, you may want to consider the following question, can you sit for one minute and completely quiet your mind?  Can you do this without feeling like you’re coming out of your skin?  When Dr. Donna Rockwell first became interested in mindfulness, she discovered that this exercise proved quite a challenge. She found, like so many of us would, if we really took the time to try it out, meditating, or even just calming our mind, can be tough to do. It’s no wonder that in an age of high-speed this and digitized that, it’s even harder to slow down, to connect with ourselves, and to just be.
