Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention. Paying attention to what is happening in the moment, without judgment, has been shown to calm the nervous system, leading to lessened feelings of anxiety. We all feel moments of anxiety throughout the day and our lifetimes. These moments become easier to manage when we practice staying present. Challenge yourself to practice tuning in to what is happening around you and notice if you begin to feel calmer, or your heart rate slowing, or your body to feel looser.

ComEd talks about their commitment to create a cleaner energy future and how this year’s Construct participants received hands-on training specific to expand the field of solar. This year’s Construct participants got a head start in solar jobs training. Illinoisans should expect to see an increase in renewable energy, including more jobs, as the field continues to grow. http://bit.ly/2tHwvrg
