Mindfulness: Positive changes in our lives

Written and accurate as at: 10 December 2020

Mindfulness isn’t often a word associated with money but being mindful is both a skill and a practice that’s beneficial when managing your personal finances in a clearer, more intentional and purposeful way.

A mindful money practice requires you to pay full attention to your money on a moment-by-moment basis. In other words, it’s about being present and aware of what you are thinking, feeling and doing with your money.

Bringing your attention to the way you earn money and spend it in your day-to-day life, is one of the simplest ways to start creating a more conscious and healthy relationship around it.

In this TED Talk, Dr Shauna Shapiro draws on modern neuroscience and ancient wisdom to demonstrate how mindfulness can help us make positive changes in our lives—not just in relation to our personal finances.
