Take a breath, say thank you, live better.

We love this simple graphic from the Huffington Post and its partners on how practicing gratitude affects both mind and body for better living.

Mindful Music helps our students have a relationship with the autonomic (involuntary) part of their nervous system including breath and pulse to help them have agency over their moods and responses. Taking a pause to express gratitude activates the parasympathetic nervous system -- our rest, digest and integrate system -- which is good medicine against stress.
