Ms Mirrat Gul senior psychologist of Punjab Institute of Cardiology was the resource person. She emphasized that it is important to live mindfully and in the moment and reawaken oneself to the present, rather than dwelling on the past or anticipating the future. In times of pandemic mindfulness can be a tool to avoid self-criticism and can be helpful in identifying and managing difficult emotions.
