Dr. Stephanie emphasizes practicing mindfulness every day as it allows people to embrace both positive qualities and colleagues that people work with. According to her, mindfulness creates a clear picture of oneself. It helps one know how to act in any given situation.

Mindfulness enables people to focus and make clear confident decisions.
