The Mindful Minute is a zine series that explores personal development through mindfulness and meditation. It delves into the benefits of introspection and awareness, and examines topics involving techniques, methods, science, and origin.

Mindful practice involves changing patterns of thinking by learning how to view thoughts and feelings non-judgmentally and with a clear mind. It is very much about changing the relationship with pain and suffering. Understanding and handling pain through mindfulness can help us cultivate compassion for ourselves and for those in our lives.

Honing in on the present moment can help us realize the full capacity of joy in every moment as it occurs rather than the worries of the future or the regrets of the past. Studies show that mindful practice can also decrease stress, improve focus, and enhance both mental and physical health.

Benefits include:

  • General wellbeing
  • Less stress and anxiety
  • Improved relationships
  • Heightened creativity
  • Greater emotional stability
  • Improved focus and concentration
  • Management of distress

Practicing mindfulness is like feeding the brain and should be considered as important as food or sleep. This zine series is created by Lillian Liu, designer and illustrator as she explores the value of intention and the quality of that intention.
