We have all heard of mindfulness. The dictionary defines it as “a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.”
Or you may have read some of my blogs on achieving mindfulness
I would now like to introduce to you ‘winefulness’.
Our mental toughness partner, Kirsten McKenna of Cortex Consulting is a performance and mindfulness consultant passionate about supporting individuals and organisations through positive change. Utilising the constructs in positive psychology, mindfulness and neuroscience, Kirsten takes a practical approach to helping individuals harness their innate strengths and cultivate wellbeing in order to develop their potential and lead more fulfilling lives.
Kirsten has developed the unique and engaging Winefulness program which applies everyday mindfulness to wine tasting and is a match made in heaven. Through this program you and your team can learn the foundations of mindfulness followed by a practical application of mindful wine tasting.
A unique activity that not only contributes to skill-set, but offers a salvation from the day-to-day stressors that can lead to significant losses in productivity and performance. Yes you read it here, mindful wine tasting can be a component of your well-being program.
Bespoke programs are available and can be enjoyed in the comfort of your office, event location or a beautiful cellar door, the choice is yours.
Or you might like to support Winefulness for World Mental Health Day on October 10 with all proceeds going to Black Dog Institute or Kirsten’s upcoming Winefulness @ Handpicked on 7 November.
