Want to know how to get a happy melon? Turns out it’s not as hard as you think, and May is the month to start.
Just 8 days out from the start of May, the team at the newly opened Happy Melon Studios on High Street, Armadale are advocating ‘Mindful in May’, a global meditation campaign supporting not-for-profit organisation, Charity Water, which brings clean water to those most in need.
The ‘Mindful in May‘ campaign is a one month online mindfulness meditation challenge, promoting a clear mind for you and clean water for others.
The idea is to challenge yourself to take 10 minutes out of your day for meditation; just for you.
Upon registration, from May 1st you’ll receive your one month meditation program delivered daily to your inbox including audio guided meditations and video interviews with global experts. The money you raise from your sponsors will go straight to Charity Water and help fund future clean water projects in developing countries.
‘Mindful in May’ began in 2012 with Dr. Elise Bialylew at the helm. After studying medicine and practising as a doctor and psychiatrist, Bialylew has combined her passions and directed her career towards mindfulness.
Right on the cusp of ‘Mindful in May’ 2015, the campaign has raised over $75,000 to date, and has inspired thousands worldwide to meditate and be conscious of their mental wellbeing.
“Meditation is not just a trending buzzword, the science is rigorous. By meditating you’re actually changing your genetic expression in a positive way,” Bialylew says.
