What our ambassadors are saying
I have seen the positive impact of regular reflection and mindfulness both in business and in sport and I am very supportive of the Smiling Mind program. If we can start instilling the importance of reflection from a young age I believe young people’s futures will be even brighter.
You can’t underestimate the power of reflection. To freeze-frame life, step back and reassess it. Reflection was the centrepiece of all the programs I ran with The Reach Foundation for over 100,000 young people, and in my own life it helps me keep my head above water. The key, of course, is delivering it to young people in a way that truly connects with them via a medium they’re exposed to everyday. This is why Smiling Mind works.
Mindfulness has been a central part of my everyday life since 2002, and meditation is now a practice my children engage in also. We celebrate so many of its benefits and I’m thrilled to know that Smiling Mind will be making it easier than ever for more young Australians to meditate.
