Mindful May

Staying mentally healthy or recovering from a mental health condition can be greatly increased by practicing mindfulness and meditation.
The Code 9 Foundation is running, “Mindful May” with the aim for not only first responders, but the entire community to commit to practising these activities to improve your mental health and wellbeing.
We will be posting twice daily, one in the morning and one at night, with various activities to complete, most you will be able to do in a short amount of time. This is all designed to get you into a rhythm of practising these fine arts.
We are also introducing for the first time this year, “Mindful May, built by teens, for teens”. We will be posting once every two to three days with meditation and mindfulness tips and exercises that have been created by teenagers, for teenagers.
Follow us on our socials to access all of this awesome free content.

Here is a headstart to get you in the Mindful May Mood!

Mindfulness is all about being in the moment and maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment.  Getting in the habit of taking notice of what you see, feel, hear, taste and smell is an easy way to help you stay grounded.
