Have you ever been so caught up with worrying about the future that it feels like your brain is wandering outside your body?

Have you ever been so focused on past events that you have missed what is happening right in front of you?

Have you ever heard the term "mindfulness" and wondered what it meant?

Mindfulness is the practice of living completely in the present moment. 

Apparently, it is also a superpower! Check out this video to find out more.

So, how do I become more mindful? Become mindful be being aware and fully present in each moment as it is happening. Meditation is one way to practice mindfulness.

Each semester, during Finals time, the well teams up with other departments on campus to bring you #MindfulFinals, a social media celebration of all the ways rams relax during finals. Watch Malcolm's video on #MindfulFinals and be sure to post your picture to Instagram or Twitter with the #MindfulFinals to show us how you practice mindfulness during hectic times of the school year!

Tap Into the Power of Mindfulness with the VCU Artfulness Initiative.

Their website has meditations and art activities that help you stay mindful.

The only place you can be is here, now.
