“Mindfulness has helped me reshape my relationship with my body and come to love it as it is,” she said.
The workshop taught students that through self-care and active listening, it is possible to be adamant about social justice issues and help others while also helping themselves.
Edmond’s main piece of advice to those looking to incorporate mindfulness into their lives is simple: Put down the phone and start noticing.
“Find something you like to do or something you do all the time and just slow down and notice the experience,” she said. “Notice your breathing, notice nature and notice the people around you.”
