Mindfulness is a form of meditation that involves being totally in the present moment. It involves observing what is happening with a calm, non-judgmental awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them.

This toolkit identifies self-care activities that could be useful in engaging prisoners in quarantine.
