Here at SupplyWell, we believe in the power of mindfulness. Whether that’s a few moments of calm before stepping into your workplace in the morning, or embracing mindfulness as a way of life - every calm moment is beneficial to you.
It’s so important to SupplyWell that Teachers, TAs and Cover Supervisors are teaching happy in schools. So along with our 8 Mindful reminders, we would like to remind you of our fantastic partnership with Everymind.

This is why members of the SupplyWell community have exclusive access to a wellbeing app. We have partnered with Everymind at Work, giving you FREE access to the Everymind app.
8 Mindful reminders
- Make time for yourself – even if some days that seems impossible. For example use your commute to practise some calming breathing techniques to prepare for the day ahead or unwind from a busy work day.
- Incorporate mindfulness into your daily routines – from how you wake up in the morning to your approach to your daily routines, mindfulness can be used in all stages of our day to bring a greater sense of calm to your life.
- Journaling – Writing and journaling has become a very popular form of mindfulness activity. From bullet journals to scrapbooking; there’s a way of journaling to suit everyone.
- Research – take some time to see what you can do to help yourself on the path to mindfulness, from the suggestions here to a wealth of information across the internet.
- Go for a swim – Swimming is a great way to combine exercise and mindfulness as it can create a great environment for meditative thought whilst moving your body as gently or vigorously as you choose!
- Make use of technology – All our SupplyWell members have access to the EveryMind app. There are also fantastic apps such as Calm and Headspace which offer guided meditations and much more.
- Mindful hobbies – there are an abundance of enjoyable hobbies that promote mindfulness such as knitting, crochet and embroidery that not only promote calmness and relaxation but also creativity!
- Get outdoors – mindfulness exercises can be done anywhere, but research indicates that engaging your senses outdoors is especially beneficial.
