Benefits of Calmness: mindfulness and other calming practices for You

Mindfulness, breathing techniques and other practices help us calm our minds. Everything begins when we stop. The aim is to get in in touch with the present moment, with our thoughts and our body, but also with what is around us. It is very complex, on the other hand, very easy. This page offers you information and mindfulness and other practices to use whenever you need.

You can start, for instance, by listening to the Mindfulness podcast episode of The Best thing Today podcast series, to get a grip on what Mindfulness is. Or listen to Emma Seppälä's lecture to get a wider view on resilience and what benefits calmness has.
