Founder of Self Set Free Living
Thank you for being here! I truly hope you find something of value and join our community of women who all have a strong desire and commitment to live mindfully, feeling calm, in control, and free.
A lot of people who meet me say I am calm, collected, and easy-going. This wasn't always the case! I have come a long way since beginning my mindfulness journey 5 years ago. I used to experience high levels of stress, worry, and anxiety. I was easily stressed over little things, constantly worrying about the future, fearing things that mostly never happened; I was irritable, anxious, unhappy. This all began to change once I discovered mindfulness and committed to a daily practice. I used mindfulness to make permanent, positive changes in my thinking and actions. Mindful living is now a core part of my life and I believe it is one of the key factors that allows me to live with more peace, joy, and freedom than ever before.
My hope is that you find something of value here at Self Set Free Living that will assist you to live with greater presence and freedom. I hope you can also experience the positive benefits of mindfulness and join me in living more mindfully.
With gratitude, Stephanie.
