At Camp Mariposa, some campers participate in mindfulness activities. Mindfulness can help us when we are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or anxious. What we think affects how we feel and what we do. We can learn to direct our thoughts in positive directions. Making your own mindful moment cards is an activity that you can do at home! You can use these cards to pause, reflect, be grateful, and be mindful no matter where you are.
Though technology has become a leisure activity, it overstimulates our senses, reduces our personal contact and decreases the amount of exercise we engage in—anything but relaxing.
