The AFSP Mindfulness Mixtape!


This summer, we at AFSP are thinking about mindfulness: a mental state often associated with meditation that involves being attuned to the present moment. It’s easy, everyone can do it, and research shows that when used in certain ways, it can be a useful tool in managing mental health.

For some, achieving a state of mindfulness involves taking a relaxing stroll in nature; for others, some alone time in a quiet room does the trick.

For many, music can be helpful. With that in mind, here are some songs that may help you to achieve a peaceful state of calm.
