Mindwell U now available across Nova Scotia
NSHA Mental Health and Addictions Program is continuing to work on a series of online resources and tools to support individuals and families. Mindwell U is now available across Nova Scotia. Mindwell U is a free online program that takes just five minutes a day, and can be accessed anywhere and on any device. This self-guided program challenges you to take five minutes out of your day to learn the basics in mindfulness; the practice of paying attention to thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations in the present moment through a gentle and nurturing lens. Each day you will complete a “Take 5” session during which you learn new mindfulness skills to improve your mental health. This practice lowers stress and increases resilience. The challenge also teaches ‘mindfulness-in-action’ so you don’t have to stop what you are doing to become calmer, present and more focused.
