Come and meet the newest kids on the block, and learn some helpful mindfulness techniques at the same time.
Experience the joyful presence of this little herd of young goats while you practice being mindful. Mindfulness is the psychological process of purposely bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment. Mindfulness also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them—without believing, for instance, that there’s a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment. Mindfulness practice has been proven to help alleviate anxiety and depression by focusing our attention on the present moment, which counteracts rumination and worrying. Mindfulness teaches us how to respond to stress with awareness of what is happening in the present moment, rather than simply acting instinctively. By teaching awareness for one’s physical and mental state in the moment, mindfulness allows for more adaptive reactions to difficult situations. Learn how to cultivate mindfulness in a fun and interesting way.
And hey — close encounters with these adorable Nigerian dwarf goats! But please be aware that this is a learning experience on the farm, not a petting zoo.
