Very good 5 movies to watch on Mindfulness

Very good 5 movies to watch on Mindfulness

Most of us love watching movies. They transport us to a different time, place or a situation which we might not be able to experience. Movies help us to learn different things which we might  not be able to experience on a regular basis.  They teach us so much about the changing social culture which we cannot experience through regular situations, like empathy, politically situations. They help us to appreciate art, help to sometime tackle difficult situations and can help viewers to tackle different situations. Sometime the viewers see themselves in a particular character which can be very good for someone's mental health too.

Along with reading books , you can also start your journey on mindfulness by watching movies. Sometimes when we see something, it registers better on our mind. 

Here's a list of 5 very good movies which will help you along your way on your journey of Mindfulness :

1. My Year of Living Mindfully :

Overwhelmed with insomnia and an incurable autoimmune disease, Shannon Harvey needed to make a change. But while the award-winning health journalist found plenty of recommendations on diet, sleep and exercise, when she looked for the equivalent of a 30-minute workout for her mental well being, there was nothing. 

Worried for the future mental health of her kids who were growing up amidst epidemics of stress, anxiety, depression and addiction, Shannon enlisted a team of scientists to put meditation to the test. Could learning to quiet our busy minds be the simple solution the world so desperately needs?

Throughout her year of living mindfully Shannon is poked, prodded, scanned and screened as she travels the world to interview 18 of the world’s leading mindfulness scientists and pioneers. But after a 30,000 kilometre journey from the bright lights of Manhattan to the dusty refugee camps of the Middle East, what begins as a self-experiment, transforms into a life-changing experience.

My Year of Living Mindfully is filled with compelling stories, groundbreaking science, and unexpected insights that go to the heart of what it means to be human in the twenty-first century.

2. Room to Breathe :

By providing a raw and realistic look at the experience, it shows how integrating mindfulness, along with patience, skill, collaboration and more, can transform even the most difficult classrooms. This movie is also available on Amazon Prime Video.

3. The Mindful movement :

THE MINDFULNESS MOVEMENT, a feature documentary that profiles the growing number of people throughout society who believe mindfulness - a peaceful quality of attention anyone can develop by simply focusing on the present moment in a non-judgmental way – is the key to creating a healthier, happier world. For them, mindfulness is the way for anyone to make more moments matter in their lives and to help create a more compassionate, caring, and ethical society.

This documentary is even an interactive experience since you will have two chances to close your eyes and practice during brief guided meditations led by well-known mindfulness teachers.

4. Walk With Me :

Read all'Walk With Me' is a meditative film about a community of Zen Buddhist monks and nuns who have dedicated their lives to mastering the art of mindfulness with their world famous teacher , Thich Nhat Hanh.

5. Just Breathe :

Directed by Julie Bayer Salzman and Josh Salzman, this film made the rounds across the interwebs in immense ways when it was first released. For a while, there wasn’t a mindfulness/meditation site that wasn’t at least mentioning it, and it’s for a good reason.

“Just Breathe” focuses on young children and how mindfulness helps them navigate some of the more extreme emotions they feel. The creators found inspiration from their 5-year-old son, who was discussing with a friend how to calm down. They were taught, at their elementary school in California, to do so by taking deep breaths. Thus the film shows very candid kindergarten-age kids talking about what they’ve learned and how they cope with their feelings using mindfulness and meditation.
