Reflect! Keep Calm & Carry On (Mindfulness Exercise)

After each session, we will provide 15-20 minute audiocasts on mindfulness. The three-part audio series is based on the ancient practice of mindfulness and is intended to help participants discover and observe their reactions to life’s stressors and provide tools for responding effectively. With practice, military professionals can apply these skills to everyday situations and learn to balance work and life. To download Mindfulness Audiocasts click on: Reflect! Keep Calm & Carry On
