New mobile meditation space bringing guided mindfulness sessions to you.
A newly launched business that offers mobile meditation space is delivering guided mindfulness sessions to workplaces, schools, universities and events across West Suffolk and the wider region.
Andrew Swiney is the founder of Mynd. His passion for mindfulness started in 2012 when he was struggling with anxiety. It became an incredible tool that helped him through a difficult time, and he has practised it ever since. “I wanted to give people the opportunity to practise mindfulness in a calm environment that was away from any unnecessary distraction. Moreover, giving people a short mental break from their busy day” said Andrew “
Andrew’s research shows that:
● The number one barrier for people interested in meditation is finding the time to practice
● 17.9 million working days lost due to work-related stress, depression, or anxiety in 2019/20*
● 828,000 workers alone suffering from work-related stress, depression, or anxiety (new or longstanding) in 2019/20*
The bespoke mobile space has been created to bring accessible mindfulness meditation sessions. The qualified mindfulness teachers at Mynd guide short sessions allowing individuals to fit a practice into their busy day. Away from any unnecessary distraction, this is an ideal environment to take a pause and help reset the mind.
On-the-go meditation is at the core of Mynd. It means being able to practise mindfulness wherever you are and whatever you are doing. Stress is increasing.
Andrew is a member at Bury St Edmunds new co-working space, @Inc.BuryStEdmunds and has a background in education as a schoolteacher, during lockdown he introduced short online meditation sessions for the pupils before the day started. This inspired him to come up with a mindfulness business concept and after a year of planning and research Mynd was created.
“I wanted to give people the opportunity to practise mindfulness in a calm environment that was away from any unnecessary distraction. Moreover, giving people a short mental break from their busy day” said Andrew “I thought, if we built a mobile meditation studio then this would be the ideal solution”
The Mynd mindfulness sessions aim to support individual wellbeing. The evidence illustrates that mindfulness can help decrease stress, improve focus and productivity as well as improve sleep.
Andrew and the mobile space, as part of his launch activities, are offering a free trial. Visit the website at www.mynd.uk for more information
