Ted Talk Tuesday – All it takes is 10 mindful minutes

Do you practice being mindful? Are you even sure you know what that means? Well ask yourself this simple question… When was the last time you spent ten minutes doing absolutely nothing.

Not checking your phone.

Not watching TV.

Not even thinking.

While we’ve been taught that we should always keep ourselves busy and on the go. The devil makes work for idle hands after all! Sometimes the best thing we can do for our mental health is to take a little break and smell the flowers.

Thats what mediation is, time for our brains to take a break and get a little bit of mental space. Andy Puddicombe is the man behind Headspace. This is a mobile app that aims to make its users a little more mindful and encourages us to take a little time out.  Taking just 10 minutes a day can help refresh your brain and appreciate the present moment. Instead of worrying about whats going to come later!
