Why mindfulness matters

  • Do you want to maximise your personal and professional potential?
  • Are you looking for a method that will help you to achieve your goals?
  • Do you want to reduce stress and anxiety, boosting health and happiness?
  • Do you want to reduce the risk of developing a mental illness?


All of these goals can be achieved by focusing on your mental component of health – the part of 3Ways triad model we call ‘Think Big’.

According to a 2009 National Survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 1 in 5 Australians will experience a mental illness every year.

The most common mental illness is anxiety, which affects 14% of Australians each year. This is a considerable portion of our population. It’s no wonder that mental illness is the third leading cause of disability burden in Australia. This means that those affected are unable to function day-to-day or work consistently.

At 3Ways, we recognise that we all have times in our lives where we feel stressed, anxious or depressed. It’s human nature to feel a range of different emotions, both positive and negative.

However, when our negative emotions spiral out of control, dictating our day-to-day lives, mental health issues can develop. Chronically stressed, anxious or depressed individuals often struggle to regulate their eating, sleeping and exercise habits, leading to other health problems.

Thinking Big is all about taking care of your mental health and giving yourself plenty of “mental breaks” and relaxation. Some common deep relaxation techniques include Yoga, Meditation and gentle exercise. Gentle exercise in a natural environment is especially nourishing for the soul—e.g. swimming at the beach, kayaking or bushwalking.

At 3Ways, we offer a range of services under the Think Big model, including Meditation, Psychology and Mindset/Mindfulness strategies. These can be offered separately or as part of a holistic health care plan.
