‘Glimpses of joy really matter, because they connect us to life rather than split us away from it.’
Dr Patricia Collard
Mindfulness doesn’t just teach us to relax, it helps us see a whole new way of living; the fostering of joy.
Stepping back to look at life helps us see what brings us happiness. Good relationships, acts of kindness, compassion for our co-workers, friends and family. Growing plants and vegetables. Looking after ourselves. All the things we so often forget.
To learn mindfulness is to learn the art of living joy.
