Do you find yourself frequently getting lost in your head and overthinking? When lost in our thoughts, we can spiral into patterns of negative thinking, worry, and stress. When entangled in our thoughts, we miss many important parts of our lives as they are unfolding. During this drop-in, we will offer a guided meditation and learn a foundational practice from Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) that can help us step out of overthinking and meet life’s difficulties with more ease, flexibility, and self-compassion. We will also discuss ways to weave mindfulness and self-compassion into our daily lives.
