This course opened my eyes to living in the present moment - I learned I created my own stress by focusing in the past (on things that already happened) or in the future (on things that haven’t occurred yet and my never happen!). I learned to be kind and caring to myself and to respond and not react to stressful situations that may arise in my life.
