Stress and distraction is a problem in our world right now. By learning presence and staying anchored in the here and now, we can find a way to respond to the stress rather than react to it. With less reaction to stress comes improved communication, better cognitive function, enhanced performance and more achievement. We also have the ability to consciously create what we want for the future when we are living in the now. Learn powerful, practical exercises you can do any time to bring yourself back to the now to have a better future.
