Mindfulness has become a popular tool to help people manage anxiety and stress and to increase focus and productivity in the busy modern world. Smiling Mind provides personal insight from the perspective of two successful business people and founders of Smiling Mind, Australia's largest mindfulness non-profit program - with a community of over 1,000,000 users across it's platforms. The authors have both used mindfulness to help navigate the peaks and troughs of everyday life.
Based on their personal experiences and the mounting evidence showing the benefits of mindfulness practice, the authors demonstrate how to bring mindfulness to all areas of our lives including work, relationships, families and parenting. They explain what "switching on" or "being mindful" is and crucially, how it works. They explain how to use the principles of mindfulness to build a happier, healthier and more connected life.
Smiling Mind is full of ideas, advice, practical tools and inspiration to lead a life that is fulfilling, passionate and emotionally healthy and to pass those lessons on to our families and the wider community.
Jane Martino and James Tutton are cofounders of Smiling Mind, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing free preemptive mental health and well-being programs via their apps and website. Both Jane and James are highly committed individuals whose personal experience of using mindfulness meditation in effectively balancing their own personal and professional lives led them in their ambition to spread the word and make a difference to the wider community s emotional and mental health."
