For Bridgeen Rea-Kaya mindfulness is a lifestyle choice; a way of “living and being in the world”, and while she admits it’s not always easy to be mindful all the time, she believes the rewards are worth any effort. The 47-year-old Belfast woman teaches mindfulness, self-compassion and happiness practices to the general public and companies, charities and other organisations who are interested in improving wellbeing.

There are innumerable benefits to practising mindfulness. In the past 30 years the research on it has grown exponentially, there are new studies on its effects all the time,” Bridgeen says.
