21-Day Mindfulness Challenge
Our Mindfulness Team at Serenity Place invites you to continue this 21-Day Mindfulness Challenge throughout the year, because we have seen how a simple practice like this every day can change our worldview and the way that we treat ourselves and others.
We invite you to cultivate a little dose of mindfulness into your daily life. Studies have shown that practicing something for 21 days can help create a new habit -- a mindful habit.
Thank you to our supportive community thus far!!! Also, big shout-out to Dr. Newfield & Dr. Glenn for your encouragement(s) and great collaboration.
