Mindfulness at FriendlyCare

Mindfulness Signage 06

What is mindfulness? For people who are not familiar with it, the word mindfulness sounds very vague and obscure; perhaps not something we would usually associate with health care. Why? Because when we hear the word “health”, we often think about bodily symptoms and physical illnesses and often disregard the mind.

“Serve the Filipino people.” – it’s a line I’ve heard countless times when I was still at my alma mater, too many times perhaps that it has at one point begun to sound rather irksome and I may have subconsciously attempted to avoid thinking about it. As a fresh graduate, the temptation to start thinking about myself instead was just too strong, yet fate perhaps had other ideas. I went and got an internship at an NGO called FriendlyCare and the line came haunting me again.

Moving Onwards and Upwards

We’ve moved!
