Mindfulness can be described as the practice of paying attention in the present moment and doing it intentionally and with non-judgement. It is the process of paying attention to what is happening. This includes the senses (what we see, hear, taste, smell, touch) and our inner world of thoughts and emotions. By practicing mindfulness, we are developing our ability to be aware. Practicing mindfulness regularly can improve mental health and overall well-being. Minderly aims to offer mindfulness based educational programs to train people to better manage stress and regulate emotions.
1 in 7 Australian primary and 1 in 4 secondary students suffer from a mental illness every year. Equipping children with key mindfulness-based social emotional skills will give them the skills, practice, and support to utilise coping strategies that lessen the symptoms of anxiety and stress. Mindfulness can help children build their emotional resilience, so they are better equipped to deal with the day to day stresses that life brings them.
Regular mindfulness sessions in the workplace can have amazing impacts on the health and happiness of individual staff. And this is bound to have a flow-on effect for your business. Mindfulness programs have also been shown to boost employee morale, productivity, and creativity. Emerging evidence across multiple fields suggests that mindfulness is fundamentally connected to many aspects of workplace functioning and leadership behaviour.

Distraction is a key feature of modern life. Phones buzz, watches tweet and usually even the commute to work has dissolved into an endless array of options i.e., radio, podcast, streaming. Today’s world is demanding, and life fast paced. We can tap into mindfulness to help us stay calm. When we approach mindfulness as a way to understand our emotions and accept them without judgement, it leads to a greater calmness of mind.
Yes, breathing is the thing that we have done since birth and rarely ever think about. Breathing is the most essential process for our health and wellbeing. We take in air and let it out approximately 25,000 times a day. By breathing correctly and taking time out of each day to focus on breath work is an important fit to give your body for both emotional as well as physical health.
“I am not very flexible to try it” is one of the most common things I hear from people who are interested in yoga but have never tried it. It seems that the pervasive cultural model of a skinny person with their leg wrapped around their head makes many people assume that yoga is not for them. Yoga in fact is for everyone. Tall or short, thick or thin, young or old, yoga is meant to adapt to you, not the other way around.
