During the week, we’re furiously replying to emails on our morning commutes. At the weekends, we’re sharing our bar visits and baby shower pictures on Instagram. We’re a generation that runs on a 24/7 body clock, which can leave us unable to switch off.
In the workplace alone, around 526,000 of us are suffering from work-related stress, depression or anxiety, according to the Health and Safety Executive.
As our lives become increasingly busy, it’s important to take a step back and assess our outlook on life.
The concept of mindfulness – whilst it may get thrown around as trendy buzz word – proves crucial to maintaining mental wellbeing.
Even the NHS encourages mindfulness as an effective way to get people to pay more attention to their own thoughts, feelings and the world around them.
