Mindful May

May is all about being mindful of yourself and others. Share #MindfulMay with your friends.

It can be easy to rush through life without stopping to notice much. Paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings and to the world around you – can improve your mental wellbeing.

Some people call this awareness ‘mindfulness’ and it can help us enjoy life more and understand ourselves better. We’ve shared some useful resources so you can see what steps you can take to develop it in your own life…
