Boost Your Hauora

Mindful moments

We can boost our wellbeing by paying more attention to the present moment; to your thoughts, feelings, and to the world around us.

We have some mindful moment videos to tautoko you and your team with tapping into the present moment.

A big mihi to our friends at Pause Breathe Smile for sharing a few of their practices with us - they've even launched an awesome new app for facilitating mindful moments. You can also share some of their mindfulness at home.

Have a quick recharge in less than 5 minutes and encourage a mindful moment at the start of hui. Be curious of what you notice before and after the practices:
