Stress Less: A Mindfulness Kit for Healthcare Professionals

Explore guided meditations, yoga practices, and other resources designed to help you find moments of connection, focus, and joy amid the stresses and strains of the season.

Stress Less

These are stressful days for everyone, but they have been especially challenging for healthcare professionals who have been showing up for their communities for more than twenty five months now through a pandemic. 

With that in mind, our team at Mindful compiled these accessible and actionable mindfulness practices to help you not only find a bit of calm, but also foster a way of being that becomes the foundation for authentic self-care. Please use these mindfulness practices freely, and often.

With deep gratitude,
The Mindful Team
