Interview: Natasha Mason, mindful Founder
Natasha Mason is the Founder and Director of Nourish Melbourne, and she’s using her background in Health Sciences and Marketing & Communication for the better – to let Melbourne know where to find all things nourishing and to help those businesses spread their nourishing message far and wide. Natasha consults with health and wellness businesses in Melbourne so that they can improve or develop their own marketing and communications efforts. She also seeks to feature all things ‘nourishing’ from in and around Melbourne – people, places and programs with the background of either food (buying food and eating out), body and mind (fitness and health services), beauty or home.

Why are you going to be Mindful in May?
What led you to meditation?
There was a point when life seemed to have become more ‘stressful’. Stressful in the sense of change happening via factors mainly outside of my control. Those factors which I couldn’t change made my mood snappy and I found myself thinking too far ahead and too far back rather than just being the best I could in the present moment. I first started by changing my diet (moved to eating whole foods, mainly organic and very little, if no sugar) as being more careful about food choices as a whole. This led to a clearer mind and no more ‘brain fog’ where I could see that there must be a better way to respond to situations I couldn’t control. I started yoga and there I was first introduced to the world of meditation and I’ve never looked back (or forward!).
