I accessed the last set of pod casts regarding mindfulness and the breathing exercises and found it to be very beneficial. I practice meditation and mindfulness anyway and have found that this has a very positive impact on my mental health and ‘stress’ levels and in maintaining that balance between work and home. I know that mindfulness etc. is not yet mainstream enough for all staff / people to feel comfortable with but do feel that organisations can go some way to normalising this type of activity and supporting staff in taking part.
