What is mindfulness? Positive Psychology Program shared 20 different definitions to help clarify mindfulness. Our favourite is from the Merriam-Webster dictionary: “The practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of heightened or complete awareness of one’s thoughts, emotions, or experiences on a moment-to-moment basis.” Now, we agree this sounds very, well, dictionary. But what we like about this definition is that it addresses our awareness internally and externally as well as acknowledging that mindfulness also means we are being noncritical. Essentially, it’s being in the present moment and allowing all of our experiences to be there with us and not judging them or ourselves. Sound complicated? It can be. Mindfulness takes practice. And more practice. That is exactly what Mindful in May allows you to focus on for an entire month, as a means to fully accept yourself and the world around you in the hope that you can find a happier and more fulfilling life. Let’s dive in a little further.

Mindful in May can help you with stress, mind chatter, anxiety, your confidence and your resilience. While you’re busy in May working on you, you’ll also be helping a great cause - bringing clean water to developing countries.

The challenge is to register for your month of classes, modules, interviews, guided meditations and more. From there, you make a donation for the cause and get access to your curriculum and community to discuss and support each other along your mindfulness journey. To Pureman, it sounds like a pretty good deal. On a personal level, mindfulness has helped me during times of high stress and anxiety and is something I continue to improve upon. But you won’t know if it makes a difference in your life until you try it. Why not start here?
