The Insomniac’s Prayer

This January is Mindfulness Month at BAUUC. Mindfulness is a practice that invites us to get out of our heads and into a deep appreciation for the world around us. But that can be easier said than done, especially when it’s 3am and you’re lying in bed running through tomorrow’s to-do-list, remembering something embarrassing you did in 7th grade, and anguishing over a strained relationship all at the same time. How can we bring mindfulness into times of peak anxiety, like sleepless nights? And what can those lessons teach us about our waking hours?
