Technology is developing exponentially, and at the click of a button we can access an infinite amount of information. With this privilege, comes the potential cost of information overload, increased distractibility and low-grade background anxiety as we try to keep on top of things.

If we wish to remain healthy, happy and effective we need to upgrade our “inner technology” to meet the demands of our increasingly complex world. Science is now revealing that wellbeing is a skill. Just like our bodies, our minds need training to function at their best.

Mindfulness meditation is training for the mind that supports us to be more focused, clear and effective in everyday life. It is being introduced into diverse settings including schools, corporations, hospitals and universities. It’s a powerful tool that can enhance our emotional intelligence and improve our relationships, communication skills, and ability to manage our emotions.

There is now compelling evidence through the work of neurobiology and psychology supporting the fact that mindfulness meditation when practiced regularly can lead to improvement in our physical and emotional wellbeing and improve our performance.
