It's not a surprise to you, STRESS is a widely prevalent phenomenon in our society and has become a global public health problem.

Linked with deprived quality of life, impaired mental health, reduced work efficiency, increased suffering and a loss of connection. 

If left untreated, the unfavourable effects placed on the body by stress may progress into chronic conditions – stress has consistently been identified as a risk factor for coronary heart disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hormonal imbalances, digestive disorders and essentially affecting every system within the body. 

Mindfulness and the process of becoming aware isn't just a way of managing stress or being more present to our experience, it is also an opportunity to change the outcome. If we are going to live our best experience and defy our human performance, we must also commit to creating moments of mindfulness within our days. 

When we can learn to do this, our whole life shifts and rewarded through our life meaning, balancing: 

  • Purpose, relationships, work, community, economic status, stress, and our belief systems.
