The story behind the toolkit
I created this toolkit after my recovery from my own experience of burnout and depression. Life had certainly been squiggly for me, and as a healthcare professional I was seeking science backed tools, to help me not only get through the difficult things happening, but also to flourish and find a sense of meaning again. Having seen the benefits of mindfulness and self-compassion practices first-hand, I set about designing a toolkit that would make mindfulness easily accessible, and help users learn how to infuse mindfulness and positive psychology practices with ease.
We are more likely to succeed building sustainable habits if we enjoy the process, and that’s why the design features of this toolkit really matters to me. I designed it with the view that making mindfulness fun, and as engaging as it could be, would be my north star. That’s why the toolkit is an interactive resource, stimulating your senses: from beautiful, friendly illustrations, to listening to the audio of calming guided meditations, amplified further by the background of nature sounds. The fun continues with creative digital worksheets, that support in helping users meld together the science of well-being to their own lives. The idea is to nudge users to take small steps that add up - whether at work, or at home.
