Each week, eJournal highlights a wellness resource to bring attention to the helpful organizations, articles and websites that are available for members or anyone who may need assistance.

Practicing mindfulness, whether through meditation or by bringing “present-moment awareness” to your daily activities, can be an effective tool for maintaining one’s wellness. Read this article from the Cleveland Clinic, “How to Practice Mindfulness to Improve Your Well-Being,” which offers ideas for getting started with mediation, mindful breathing and mindful eating, and suggestions on where to look for other opportunities to practice mindfulness. 

Find additional wellness resources on the MBA's Health & Well-Being page, which was launched in April 2020 to support member wellness during COVID-19.
