In this week’s episode of The Whole Circle Podcast we talk to the Founder of Mindful in May, Dr Elise Bialylew.

Mindful in May is a transformative one month online mindfulness program which brings together the world’s best meditation teachers, wellbeing experts and neuroscientists to teach you the tools to transform your mind towards greater well-being and happiness – all whilst giving you the chance to transform the lives of others living in poverty.

The statistical data from Mindful in May that they now have shows that the people who have participated in the program, committing to 10 minutes a day of mindful meditation, benefited with:

• reduced stress levels • greater positive emotions • reduced negative emotions • greater self-compassion • greater ability to focus.

It’s important to note that doing this meditation isn’t about finding a blissful state of being for 10 minutes a day and then the remainder of your day is chaotic and overwhelming. It’s actually about training your brain and the benefits of that training are going to have a ripple effect onto your everyday life. It’s a much higher return on investment than simply feeling good for 10 minutes.
