In our busy, high-stress lives, sometimes we all need to slow down, breathe, and just be. In her new book, A Moment for Me: 52 Simple Mindfulness Practices to Slow Down, Relieve Stress, and Nourish the Spirit, author Catherine Polan Orzech, MA, LMFT, offers simple, take-anywhere rituals to bring more ease and insight into our daily lives. We learn that self-care and space is less about setting aside time and more about being differently in what we are already doing.
