Too busy to be mindful? Think again. Here are 3 practical ways of integrating mindfulness into any busy life schedule. You don't need to be a zen master to practice mindfulness!

Suicide - Let's start talking about it.
It is time to make suicide part of the conversation. Please share to others. You really never know who might watch it and ultimately save their life. 🗣Look around you...do you see 6 people? That is the same number of people who devastatingly commit suicide every day in Australia. Six people were at a point of no return that they believed ending their life was better than continuing it. And they are only the ones who succeeded. Another 30, each day, attempt to do the same. ‼️I know, for me, committing suicide wasn't about wanting to die, it was just about not wanting to live the life I had... battling with my own mind every single day. I never wanted to die, I just didn't want to be alive. Here, I tell my story. I explain the reality of wanting to commit suicide and the one trick I personally used to stop myself. 🙏➡️➡️ If you are thinking of anything along these lines, please call Lifeline Australia on 13 11 14. If you're outside of Australia, please call your emergency department.Posted by Recover Together Now on Sunday, February 18, 2018
Preparing for the R U OK conversation
Earlier this week, I posted a video on tips for when reaching out to someone to check in with them and see how they are going. But what if you’re the one on the other side? The one being asked R U OK? How do you respond? I use my personal stories to show I responded throughout my journey to help others to prepare.Posted by Recover Together Now on Saturday, November 25, 2017
Tell Yourself the Story of the Dream Come True
Start telling yourself the story of what you want to be, rather than the reasons for why you aren't. ✨Last week, we posted a video on the power of meditation and how effective it is in relaxing the mind and creating a greater sense of space. But, that isn't the best part. The best part is that we can use this power to rewire our brains. We are incredibly amazing creatures that have the ability to create and change the connections in our minds.Posted by Recover Together Now on Monday, June 11, 2018
