The COVID 19 crisis will pass, but how we think, live and interact with others has changed forever. The Buddybugzz embody this global change. This series is more relevant now, than it ever could have been before.

It is NOW time to integrate this mental-health practice into the lives of the next generation! 

WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
Mindfulness Meditation

A body scan is the most common type of mindfulness mediation. This is when we hold our full attention on our body and breath, with kindness and without judgement for the duration of our meditation. It is just one of the many mindfulness exercises we do to achieve a temporary mindful state.

Mindfulness Practice

This is when we complete mindful exercises regularly with a view to achieving Trait Mindfulness. Common exercises include meditation, breath control, and mindful seeing, listening and eating. We can apply mindfulness to any action if we bring our full focus and attention to what we are doing and complete the activity without judgement and with kindness . 

Trait Mindfulness

Trait or dispositional mindfulness is the goal of mindfulness practice. This when we can switch on a mindful state whenever we want! It is the art of living mindfully. We achieve this by regularly incorporating mindfulness practice (awareness, purpose and intention) into our day.

The Buddybugzz show our viewers how to do just that!

The Buddybugzz are all about Trait Mindfulness. This is the most beneficial and long-lasting form of mindfulness, and it can be high-energy and fun!                                                                                         Further information
