Give me 4 weeks, I'll give you changes for life!

In times like these, we really can't afford to lose our mind. Spend a month training your mind and step into greater calm.

Mindful in May is the world’s largest online mindfulness fundraising campaign. The idea behind it is simple: we provide education, tools and support so you can build a sustainable meditation practice to become mentally fit in one month. Research shows it only takes 10 minutes of meditation a day to see significant positive benefits to your life.

And as you strengthen your mind, you can also opt to better the world by raising funds to bring clean, safe drinking water to those who most need it.

WHAT PAST PARTICIPANTS SAY about Mindful in May...

quote-1
“Being guided through mindful in may to meditate for ten minutes is very doable in this busy life and you still get the benefits…”

I think Mindful in May is fabulous! Anything that promotes peace of mind and benefits people who are in need at the same time is a brilliant idea. I am prone to shocking anxiety and meditation has really helped with that. I just passed my 300 day mark since I started meditating regularly with Mindful in May. That really kick started it for me — consistency has always been my problem. Being guided through Mindful in May to meditate for ten minutes is very doable in this busy life and you still get the benefits

- Magda Szubanski

“The content is fantastic, I was worried I would get lost in it being a beginner but I’ve been so engaged and got a lot out of each one.”

I have found greater calm, an awareness of myself & those around me and a space to clear my mind when days are stressful. I’ve loved & appreciated your guidance, the guided meditations have been great and the interviews have been so informative & valuable. The content is fantastic, I was worried I would get lost in it being a beginner but I’ve been so engaged and got a lot out of each one. I like to know how things work, so the approach has been brilliant.

- Melanie Duve

“By bringing mindfulness into my daily routine, I have seen significant improvements in my overall wellbeing”

I confess I was a cynic about meditation and mindfulness. But after my husband died suddenly in 2014, and I was confronted with night after night of terrible insomnia, when a friend suggested I give mindful in may a go I thought “what have I got to lose in committing 10 minutes a day to something?” and the charitable element of the project meant that someone out there had something very big to gain! What I found was that far from losing anything, I gained back not just the capacity to sleep but also an awareness of the extraordinary power in mindfulness and meditation to promote both good physical and mental health. My sleep improved, symptoms of a chronic physical health condition improved and I felt more alert and capable to deal with the craziness of everyday life. Using the Mindful in May’s practical and accessible programming provided me with not just a daily mindfulness tool but also an awareness of the scientific research that provides the evidence for it. By bringing mindfulness into my daily routine, I have seen significant improvements in my overall wellbeing.

- Fiona Grimwald

I think the daily practices made a big difference to my wellbeing and enabled me to reduce my anxiety...”

I signed up for MIM 2015 without quite knowing what to expect exactIy. I had started meditating at work with some colleagues, but it was only a weekly practice. I think the daily practices made a big difference to my wellbeing and enabled me to reduce my anxiety (in particular work-related). I found that I was looking forward to that quiet time in my sometimes hectic days. The meditation tracks were great – my favourite is the breath and sound meditation. I use this technique by myself very often – in the train on my way home from work for example. And I really liked the interviews. Whilst I couldn’t quite keep up with them (there are a lot), I have since watched all but 2 I think. They are extremely informative and inspiring. Unfortunately life just tends to get in the way and I am really looking forward to MIM 2017 for a renewd daily dose of inspiration, quiet and energy.

This program is ideal if you...

  • Have a tendency to get stressed or have racing thoughts that can overwhelm you
  • Want to control your emotions and not get so easily triggered
  • Want to reduce the worry and reduce "mind chatter"
  • Have tried meditation but haven’t been able to make it a regular habit and feel the long-lasting benefits of a calm, clear mind
  • Need more support than a meditation app can give you and value being part of a community
  • Want to learn a tool that is sustainable, long-lasting and will strengthen your resilience and ability to cope in the most stressful situations
  • Lead a busy life & have no more than 10 minutes a day to meditate
