Building your ‘mindful muscle’
Let’s try something different – stop thinking about the future. Stop thinking about the past, just exist in this moment right now. Harder than it sounds – but that’s the premise behind mindfulness, a psychological craze that’s gaining traction around the world.
Mindfulness is now working its way into higher education. In fact, Melbourne’s Monash University is looking to incorporate it into their entire curriculum. Here in Sydney, UTS could be next in line.
Producer Sam King spoke with Dr. Richard Chambers, a clinical psychologist from Monash University who is leading the push for mindfulness in Universities.
