Research shows that when we train our mind to be present where our body is, that is when we are paying attention to what we are doing... we are happier.
When we train our mind we develop awareness.
Many of us find ourselves wishing that things were different to how they are?
Or perhaps we feel worried, or anxious and we’re not sure exactly why?
Or we have trouble going to sleep or staying asleep – we can’t seem to stop that constant flow of thoughts?
“Take 5 Mindful Minutes”, is a collection of fun focused, short, mind training or meditation strategies that could be supportive for users under 10 years of age to practice with a helpful adult.
When we’re aware we notice how we feel, we notice what we’re thinking and we notice what we’re doing. We’re likely then to notice when we’re distracted, have better impulse control, be less angry, and be more aware of our thought processes with better concentration and memory. We’re likely too to be kinder, more patient and therefore more compassionate and caring of ourselves and others
So to perhaps be calmer, not feel so worried or be less reactive – that is be more aware of things as they are happening and therefore making better choices on the spot - then this App might be useful.
