Life is hectic. Whether you’re a student juggling multiple classes, a burgeoning adult trying to find the right career niche, or an established professional balancing home and work life, we’ve all got a lot going on. Every single day we’re busy managing the pieces of our lives. So busy, that sometimes we forget to enjoy those pieces. It’s an easy trap to fall into — and a terrible one. It is hard to practice mindfulness and appreciate the present when rushing through each moment to get to the next.
