Meet Jim

Read about how Mindfulness helped him get through the pandemic — and beyond

Welcome to Meet Our Community!

This is a place where we are sharing real-life experiences from Mindfulness.com community members — both as a way to help you feel connected to people all around the world who are on the mindfulness journey with you, and also so you can see how regular, simple mindfulness practices are helping people deal with challenges, increase happiness, and improve their everyday wellbeing.

We’d love to introduce you to Jim, who wrote to us from Nottingham, UK. Keep reading to get his full story.

At 70, I’d been through a tapestry of events. Then the pandemic hit.

When you’re my age, you’ve seen a lot: births, deaths, marriages, children growing up, sad times, happy times. The list is endless, isn’t it? But hey, I got here!

Then came the pandemic. With all of its stresses, it also kickstarted a period of time when my wife and I stepped up our well-being. We became more active, taking daily walks, contacting friends and family we had not seen or spoken to for some time, even doing jigsaw puzzles.

Anxiety, even in the new freedom

When the lockdown ended, freedom came back. But I found myself getting anxious about what the next steps would be and what the future would hold.

By chance, I came across the mindfulness.com app. It was a revelation. I now have the tools, techniques, and most importantly the support, advice, and guidance from a team of exceptional people, to help me put my mind at ease and focus on the here and now.

I am now in a much better place, both mind and body, with the skills and support I now use daily. My journey through life now continues with a new vigor.

A daily routine

I now begin the day with a guided meditation practice. It’s my “me time.” This work is a support that enhances my, and others’, well-being.

Advice I would give to someone starting out with mindfulness is:

Take the leap of faith! You will either grasp it with both head and heart, or not, you can take a self award for trying either way it goes.
