Mindful March is coming....! We will be sharing with you information and ideas to help you be more present, connected and calm over the next 31 days. Mindfulness is incredibly helpful in rewiring the neurological stress responses in your brain and calming the physiological responses to stress in your body resulting in better physical and mental health. There are many simple and effective techniques that you can implement in your day to help reduce stress and tension and improve wellbeing.

Join us for 31 days of mindful living!





What is Mindfulness?

How often can you say that you are truly mindful, present, connected with yourself and others in the moment, and not distracted?

Most of us would probably relate to the answer "not often". And our over use of mobile phones is a big factor in this.

When was the last time you woke up/went to sleep without checking your phone, ate breakfast/lunch dinner, cooked, cleaned, spent time with your partner/children, sat at an airport, around the resort pool on that long awaited holiday, in an appointment waiting room (etc...!) without checkin/reading/scrolling/being pinged at by your phone?

Today as we live in with covid-19, as our lives and world change, as we spend more time in our homes, leaving our homes only for essential items + exercise + work if working from home is not possible, has your attachment to your mobile device increased or decreased?

Try to do at least 1 activity each day over the Easter long weekend where you leave your phone at home during these essential trips, or on silent and out of reach.

What do you notice when you are not looking at your phone?

Do you feel anxious, self conscious, a bit lost, or free, calmer, and more in tune with what you are doing and what is going on around you? Or all of the above?!
