To those who attended MaryBeth’s mindfulness classes here is a chance to connect again.

So many people have asked me about meditation and mindfulness during this time. What can they do, how does it work? I would love to share with you some ways to start introducing this into your life. On Monday the 13th at 8pm I will be going live to talk about meditation and mindfulness and different techniques you can use to help cope with anxiety and stress. I invite you to join me and also share this with anyone you think would benefit.

If you have questions that you would like me to answer during this time about this topic please leave your question in the comments.

See you Monday!!
