Finding moments of peace and mindfulness is becoming increasingly crucial in the day-to-day hustle and bustle of our lives. Following our February focus on building habits that stick, we bring you March, a month to focus on mindfulness.

To hit the ground running with this, we bring you the 7-Day March Live Well Challenge – designed to make you THINK well, MOVE well, EAT well, FUNCTION well, and ultimately, LIVE well.

In a society dominated by hectic schedules and constant distractions, taking a step back to prioritise our mental, physical, and emotional health is often overlooked. This challenge aims to break that pattern, guiding you through a week of purposeful activities that will nurture your body and foster a deep sense of mindfulness.

The ‘THINK, MOVE, EAT & FUNCTION well’ categories encourage you to engage in activities that promote clarity of thought, physical vitality, nourishing nutrition, and efficient bodily function. The belief is that focusing on these aspects will unlock the key to living well.

Each day will present you with an opportunity to partake in the challenge; whether you focus on one, two or even all categories, we have provided a list of resources to get started.

THINK Well – Positive thinking and mindfulness

Some suggestions include:
–  Mindfulness practices – breathwork, meditation, journaling, grounding
–  Take a break from screens – especially right before bed; set do not disturb on your phone after 7 pm
–  Listen to a feel-good podcast, some music or read a few chapters in your book

Here are some helpful links to get you started:
