Three Minutes

Managing mental health illustration


Have you ever had a thought or a worry that wouldn’t go away no matter how hard you tried to ignore it?

Let’s try an experiment.

The purple elephant is an unhelpful thought or feeling, and the more you try not to think about it, the more space it’ll take up in your mind.

Three minutes of mindful breathing can be enough to put the necessary break in the chain and bring you back to the present moment.
