A Cup of Mindfulness: For the Busy & Restless
Do you know you ‘should’ practice mindfulness but have been unsuccessful at making it a habit? Does it seem like one more thing to add to an already overwhelming to-do list? Mindfulness doesn’t need to be complicated and can fit into even the busiest schedules. Research has shown that the best way to incorporate a new habit into your life is to fit it around your existing behaviour.
Through leading-edge science and a bit of humour, Lisa Belanger describes how to practice mindfulness to relieve stress, recharge and refocus in minutes by making simple changes to the way you are doing things every day, such as drinking coffee, taking a shower or driving to work.
What inspires people to live a healthy lifestyle? Is it to postpone their expiration date or is there something more? The benefits of a healthy lifestyle are countless; there is no debate there. Yet the majority of us continue to struggle with motivation and barriers to living healthily. There is a disconnect between knowledge and behaviour that is only getting worse. We propose a dash of inspiration.
Inspire Me Well takes an in-depth look at what motivates behaviour change through stories of people who were inspired to make daily choices to promote their health and well-being.
