The Mindful Mile

One day last fall, I was sitting in the Wellness Council meeting at our hospital when the reflection was read.  It was titled “Mindful”.  That got me thinking about Sodexo’s Mindful program and all the information I had read about it.  The one piece that jumped out at me was the Mindful Mile. I’ve been a runner since I was in high school and have many marathons under my belt, so I really love to see people out walking, jogging, running….MOVING. It doesn’t matter how fast or slow you are or what shape you’re in …just that you are out there.  At Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare- All Saints in Racine, Wisconsin (20 minutes south of Milwaukee), we have two different hospital campuses three miles apart.
