I’ve signed up to do to the Mindful In May challenge. For someone that has never meditated nor practiced mindfulness, this will be exactly that – a challenge. But one that I am greatly looking forward to.
As someone who suffers from anxiety and the glass half empty syndrome, the benefits of mindfulness are of particular interest to me. Powerful evidence suggests that the daily practice of mindfulness helps one to experience more calm and peacefulness, to relieve stress, to improve self esteem, to improve working memory and focus, to enhance relationships and to boost the immune system. And these are just a few of the many benefits on offer.
So what exactly is Mindful In May? The challenge is to meditate for 10 minutes every day in the month of May, either as a group or as an individual. You will receive daily emails inclusive of advice from experts, audio guided meditations as well as a meditation program.
Ask your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you in your daily practice – all proceeds go to Charity Water, a not for profit organisation that donates 100% of their funds to help build clean water projects in developing countries.
