Feeling less stress, having more focus and generally being in a better mood are the key benefits of the new Take 5 to Focus program.
Available on the MHealthy Portal, the program encourages participants to take short breaks for a mindfulness or meditation video each day.
“You can benefit from taking a few minutes every day to make space for rest and calm,” said Kelcey Stratton, resiliency and well-being services program manager at Michigan Medicine. “This program offers a simple yet structured way to help you pause, refresh and refocus.”
Take 5 to Focus offers an easy and sustainable way for individuals to practice mindfulness and meditation. To take part, individuals are asked to view a short video, about five minutes, each day for four weeks.
Registration for Take 5 to Focus is open now. Participants will be encouraged to watch videos from Nov. 14 through Dec. 11. Progress is tracked by the MHealthy portal automatically, so a participant’s effort is simply focused on the practice of mindfulness and meditation.
