Mind­ful­ness Pho­tog­ra­phy Competition

Mind­ful­ness: the art of being ful­ly present.’

We called all remote health prac­ti­tion­ers, includ­ing Abo­rig­i­nal and Allied Health Work­ers – whether you are still work­ing out bush or have already returned home to enter the CRANAplus Mind­ful­ness Pho­tog­ra­phy Competition!

Mind­ful pho­tog­ra­phy is about cap­tur­ing ordi­nary moments in every­day life that encour­age you the view­er to be in the moment’. No spe­cial equip­ment is required. Mobile phone cam­eras are great because you car­ry them around and are there­fore able to be employed when your eye is caught by the extra-ordi­nary’. This com­pe­ti­tion is about fos­ter­ing calm­ness and self aware­ness – notic­ing the light, dif­fer­ent nuances of colour and it can also be about see­ing the world differently. 

We received so many fan­tas­tic entries, and have fea­tured the win­ning pho­to below by Anne Tour­nay. The two run­ners up fol­low in the slideshow, by Kara Tem­ple­ton and Andrea Porteous.

Well­be­ing Competition

Tak­ing A New Perspective

The pur­suit of hap­pi­ness keeps many of us engaged with work and life in gen­er­al in order to strive for this elu­sive concept.

Recent research has found that tak­ing a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive on our expe­ri­ences can great­ly enhance our sat­is­fac­tion and imbibe more mean­ing in our lives. In fact the ben­e­fits of pos­i­tive expres­sion have been shown to increase well­be­ing and even longevity.

Sing For Your Life

The link between emo­tion­al well-being and choir singing is well-established.
