Mindfulness is rooted in Buddhist meditation practice and has been part of a popular trend in the United States in recent years. This practice can be used to help strengthen focus and reduce anxiety, which can be very beneficial when we need a clear mind to produce art!
Last year I took a course on mindfulness and its theories at Northeastern, where we practiced everyday outside and inside the classroom. This week I saw an article written about mindfulness practice being implemented into other courses at Northeastern, so I decided to check out how the trend was moving along.
I tried to play a little bit with this topic on a site I hadn’t tried before, Storify, to gather some information through last week’s challenge: Twitter. My post can be seen here on Storify.
