As humans it's natural for our minds to wander

A Harvard study found we spend nearly half our waking hours thinking about something other than what we are doing in the present moment.  Whether we’re dwelling on the past, contemplating our to-do list or worrying about the future, this constant mind wandering can directly impact our hauora and happiness. Being mindful is the antidote.  

The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand and The Kindness Institute have teamed up together to bring you the Mindfulness Month. Over 3,000 people are joining us for 31 days of mindfulness and raise money for the Mental Health Foundation in support of a better mental health system.
