My Life, Mindfully

Practicing mindfulness for a more peaceful, balanced life.

I’m Melissa

I’ve been practicing mindfulness for 12 years, but for the first 4 years or so, I only knew it as a heightened awareness – of my body, thoughts, and feelings. Whatever you call it, it has changed my life.

It started with a divorce and a yoga class; the latter of which I kept my tube socks on and couldn’t do a single pose. It continues with raising a daughter, managing life-threatening food allergy anxiety, and starting Moving Toward Mindful with my husband J. A. to help others find balance by incorporating mindfulness into their everyday lives.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey, and share your own experiences too! Life is better when shared.
