    Reducing your stress - for you and the world

    Thich Nhat Hanh said that nothing is more important than your peace - but is it true? What about all the things we can do to make the world a better place?

    The antidote to envy and jealousy

    The antidote to envy and jealousy

    Thich Nhat Hanh taught us that we don’t need external conditions to be happy - we can simply enjoy the experience of breathing in and breathing out. But how can we be happy when there’s people who are richer than us? Are better looking than us? That seem happier than we are?

    The importance of rest

    Modern living is characterised by business and rushing. As a result we’re more anxious and find it hard to simply stop and breathe. We actually feel guilty for resting! But taking some time to be still is essential for our wellbeing.

Mindfulness For Beginners

This is the first time I have seen this. I loved the accent, I loved the information being said. I decided to follow this one and will now listen to the rest of the episodes! This was really great especially for the those who have a hard time with meditation. A really great place to start! ❤️
