Mindfulness or mediation has a raft of scientific evidence behind its therapeutic benefits. It has been shown to be effective in anxiety, depression, stress reduction, insomnia, fatigue, cognitive function and more.
With an increasingly busy and stressful lifestyle, it is even more important to pause and be mindful. The techniques are deceptively simple but powerful and have been used since ancient times. Dr Jackson does one on one mindfulness sessions as an Ovio instructor and is a trained Relax Kids coach.
Relax kids is an evidence-based intervention for kids to help them relax. It has been shown to improve emotional regulation, reduce anxiety and enhance good coping strategies for children.
