We re­viewed… MINDFULLY

Haven Magazine - - UPFRONT -

Mindfully is an awe­some lit­tle mind­ful­ness pod­cast by the ABC, made in con­junc­tion with the not-for-profit Smil­ing Mind or­gan­i­sa­tion and Brett Kirk (ex-syd­ney Swan cap­tain and now coach AND fa­ther of five!). Tar­get­ing busy fam­i­lies and par­ents (par­tic­u­larly mums), the Mindfully crew has just re­leased a new se­ries, Mind­ful­ness at Home, which is lit­er­ally about how fraz­zled par­ents can prac­tice mind­ful­ness tech­niques at home to make life calmer and hap­pier. Com­ing in Jan­uary is an­other se­ries, Mind­ful­ness at School, about how kids can use mind­ful­ness to get more out of their school days. ABC’S ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer of pod­casts Jus­tine Kelly (a Gold Coast lo­cal and mum her­self) ex­plains Mindfully as “not about rub­bing crys­tals and sit­ting in the lo­tus po­si­tion med­i­tat­ing - it’s for peo­ple who want to know what they can do to get a calmer brain, and there­fore a calmer home and life”. Each se­ries in­cludes an ex­plainer episode, fol­lowed by four tar­geted (and short) med­i­ta­tions. Sign us up!
