Marine Mindfulness

Soothing with sea creatures

Soothing sea creatures

Created for Australians who might be struggling with the current lockdown or those simply seeking a mindful exercise, our Marine Mindfulness content aims to encourage relaxation and calm with peaceful and mesmerizing content.

According to multiple studies – including a 2019 study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health – observing live fish in an aquarium decreases anxiety, enhances relaxation and improves one’s mood.
