If you’ve ever composed a grocery list in your head while driving carpool and listening to your children discuss who got in trouble at school and why, then you know what it’s like to have your attention divided.

If you’ve ever worked on a PowerPoint presentation while listening to a conference call and eating lunch, then you know what it’s like to have your attention divided.

If you’ve ever watched television while playing a handheld video game and chatting with friends, then you know what it’s like to have your attention divided.

Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present and aware. It’s not easy in a world where the ability to multi-task is highly esteemed.1

Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day first honored those who lost their lives while fighting in the Civil War. But, during World War I, the United States found itself embroiled in another major conflict, and the holiday evolved to commemorate American military personnel who died in all wars.2

On Memorial Day, every American has an opportunity to practice mindfulness during the national moment of remembrance. The remembrance will occur at 3:00 p.m. local time on Monday, May 28, 2018.2

This year, no matter where you are on Memorial Day, spend one minute remembering and honoring those brave Americans who died defending our nation.
