This week on Wellness Wednesday we invite you to pause and reflect. One proven method to ground oneself is the 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 mindfulness exercise. Take a moment to practice mindfulness as you read this.

The purpose of this exercise is to focus your mind in the present moment. No, this exercise will not take away pain and suffering; however, it can give your mind an opportunity to pause so that you are better able to handle what comes your way.
