Hello mindfulness enthusiasts!
So here’s a little about me, and why I decided to make this page. My name is Mel Giegerich and I am a senior at Davidson College in North Carolina. I am a psychology major and I used to play on the NCAA Division I women’s basketball team here. I decided to make this website because of my interest in mindfulness, which started last semester. Mindfulness is becoming a popular therapy technique for various clinical disorders, and, being a psychology major, this really got my attention and I wanted to learn more about how to utilize this method in my practice. Not only does this type of meditation help clinical populations, but it can also help anyone alleviate the stress they face on a daily basis. I personally have been practicing mindfulness for a few months and can notice a huge difference in my overall wellbeing. I no longer feel as stressed, and when I do feel stressed I know how to implement different techniques so that I can better manage these feelings. In creating this website my hopes were that people could use it as a resource to lower their own stress and anxiety levels, particularly for students at my college during exam time. No matter how much time you have in your day, setting aside even 5 minutes to meditate can make a big difference. You also do not have to sit down and meditate to be mindful-there is mindful eating, walking, etc. So as you peruse this site please check out all it has to offer, and last, but not least, happy browsing!
