Did you know that studies show we take between 17,000 and 30,000 breaths per day and, on average, have between 60,000 to 70,000 thoughts per day? That means our thoughts are moving faster than we are breathing! This is one of the main reasons we use conscious breathing, meditation and mindful movement to learn mindfulness. It is the fastest and most effective ways to slow down our heart rate, breath, and thoughts.Coach Misty
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is living in the moment is being fully focused on the present without concern of the past or future. It is a mindset of heightened awareness that creates a gap between emotions, thoughts, and reactions. The individual is completed connected to mind, body, and soul. In this space, the person experiences heightened self-awareness, mental clarity, focus, and inner peace.

What is mindfulness coaching?
Mindfulness is a lifestyle that every person has access to, yet few people know how to achieve. As a society, we are more stressed out and distracted than ever. We’re looking for “something more” yet chasing the same circles of endless “stuff” hoping that if we can just get from point “A” to point “B,” our lives will improve.
When you learn to live with mindfulness, you not only learn to live in the moment, you learn how to detach yourself from the things that hold you back, whether that’s emotions, negative thinking habits, or patterns of actions. You’re able to live more peacefully with tools that allow you to stay centered and balanced, rather than rattled and reactive. Your focus and clarity improve allowing you to live more freely while limiting stress, anxiety, sleeplessness, etc.
With mindfulness coaching, you’ll focus on bringing new awareness to lifelong patterns and you’ll create a personalized plan for reframing negative thought habits/actions. You’ll learn how to connect your mind, body, and soul to bring clarity to who you are, what you want, and how to get there. Through this heightened self-awareness, you’ll learn how to manage stressful situations, your emotional reactions (i.e., anxiety, fear, anger, etc.) and access inner peace.
