In The Gift of Presence, Caroline Welch, MA, JD, offers a scientifically inspired, practical approach for making mindfulness part of our everyday lives through the 3Ps of Purpose, Pivoting and Pacing.
Anxiety in our world is rising, and women consistently report higher stress levels than men. In marginalized groups, the stress levels are even higher. In this groundbreaking book, Ms. Welch explores why women of all ages and stages feel increasingly overwhelmed, on edge, and depleted by simultaneous demands and unrealistic expectations and how this has led to pervasive multitasking and an elusive question for balance.
What can be done to reduce stress and build resilience in the lives of women - and all of us - during these challenging times? While we can't control others or events, we can control how we choose to respond to what's happening around us through a calm, clear, open, receptive state of mind, simply called Presence, Mindfulness or Mindful Awareness.
