As part of our celebrations for Mental Health Day, we’re setting you, if you are willing, a mindfulness challenge. Why? Because mindfulness has been scientifically proven to aid mental health and opens to the doors for us to feel more in control, present and joyful!
By taking on a mindfulness challenge encourages you to practice daily activities that reduce stress and anxiety, improve performance and productivity, and increase happiness with a greater sense of peace, presence and overall well-being. Taking this challenge will also provide practical tools and strategies you can start using immediately to gain more focus and presence in your own life.
Although there are many Mindfulness Challenges out there that give you daily tasks and activities for a set time, I believe that it’s a ‘one size fits all’ challenge. With a little bit more effort and courage, you can set up your own mindfulness challenge that suits you, for as long a time as you wish.
Just follow these steps to set up your Mindfulness Challenge, and go for it!
What you will need:
