mindfulCITY.com is on a mission to improve the quality of lives amongst local residents. Launched in August 2011, mindfulCITY is the one and only wellness web portal of its kind in South Florida to offer its readers a directory of businesses merging traditional and non-traditional health and fitness platforms; as well as an events calendar, commerce council and e-bulletin designed to introduce and connect individuals to life enhancing services and resources. While plenty of local websites and newsletters promote social, art, and cultural happenings; mindfulCITY has secured an untapped niche specializing in alternative, holistic, and spiritual realms.
Katie Jane, the founder of mindfulCITY developed this community link to act as the “soul’s search engine,” where followers can attain enlightenment. In this day and age, there is a stigma associated with Americans who tend to realize there is more to life than work. A majority of individuals fail to understand the valued importance of improving their quality of life whether it’s through yoga, fitness classes, acupuncture, meditation or nutritional counseling. Many don’t grasp the numerous opportunities to help them attain new levels of health and happiness after a long trying workday. This is where mindfulCITY takes the reigns. Their goal is to encourage men and women to make it a primary mission to put their livelihoods first and attain experiences of happiness, personal growth and increased awareness.
*According to a study in 2009 by Barbara Fredrickson, Ph.D., Kenan Distinguished Professor of Psychology in UNC’s College of Arts and Sciences and the principal investigator of the Positive Emotions and Psychophysiology Laboratory, it stated that people who cultivate their life with frequent moments of positive emotions increase their resilience against challenges. After enduring months of endless research, Jane truly realized how difficult it was for others to find a harmonious balance in their personal and professional life. “I want to help people appreciate the finer moments in life before they are caught saying ‘I wish” or ‘what if.’ I want to point individuals in the direction of a positive outlet that will ignite their inner spirit and free up some of their daily stress,” says Jane.
