Mindfulness in the New Year
Sponsored by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

"Coping with cancer’s challenges is stressful and exhausting during the best of times, but it can be particularly hard during this tumultuous and uncertain period. Imagine there was a way for you to decrease your stress, manage your pain, improve your mental and physical health, and cope with uncertainty—a way that was free, easy to access any time, scientifically proven to be effective, and didn’t require another pill or visit to a doctor’s office," said Armstrong, seen above.
There is: MINDFULNESS. Mindfulness is a simple, flexible, easy-to-learn set of tools that can help you to feel better, no matter what challenges you face. Join us to find out more about what mindfulness is (and isn’t), why it works, and how you can start incorporating simple, quick mindfulness practices into your life today."

As we ring in a new year, get ready to be motivated with mindfulness strategies to help navigate these unprecedented times. Our professional speaker, Ailey Armstrong, as seen above is an Oncology Social Worker, MSW, LICSW at SCCA will share how mindfulness is a set of psychological skills for effective living that involves acknowledging and understanding “what is” rather than focusing on “should” and “what ifs.”
Mindfulness helps us become more flexible in our thinking, something we can all use these days. Tracy Jolly, an incredible survivor, will inspire as she shares her best tips for incorporating mindfulness each day. Jennifer Gillette, our licensed staff social worker will facilitate this program. There will be time for questions as well.
