Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the awareness that arises from shifting your focus away from the past or future to the present moment. It helps reduce stress, increase your self-awareness and focuses your concentration. It is also incredibly simple to get started and you’ll notice the effects in a few short weeks.

Live Yellow’s Positivity Program lasts 8-weeks and you’ll be asked to try an exercise about four-days a week. Each week’ s exercises will take you approximately 15-20 minutes. Some weeks will take a little longer, other weeks it will be a little less.

You'll notice a difference after just a few weeks. But from the outset, you’ll certainly feel more relaxed after each exercise.

We all lead stressful lives, which includes juggling the expectations of family, friends and colleagues. Often this leaves us with very little time to dedicate to our own wellbeing. Mindfulness can help if you:

  • Feel that your stress levels have increased
  • Feel overwhelmed or that you don’t have enough time for yourself
  • Are spending too much time in your head
  • Need to create the headspace to make a change
  • Want to improve your immune system’s ability to fight off illness
  • Are seeking greater creativity Want to create new and complex neural pathways in your brain

Once you get the hang of a few simple mindfulness exercises you will realise that there are endless ways in which you can enjoy the present. Every time you catch yourself in your head and spend the next 30 seconds being present you will be giving yourself the time you need to rejuvenate.

No, the program can be enjoyed using your smartphone, tablet or desktop computer. All you need to do is find a quiet place to listen to the exercises.

The program is designed to give you a foundation awareness, which you can then continue practising for the rest of your life. You will be able to return to the exercises you enjoyed the most at any time via your Dashboard.

We will also encourage you to explore the topic further through regular discussions and initiatives that continue your personal development.
