Mindfulness for small business.

Take control of your mental health.

Owning and running a small business can be stressful and achieving work-life balance can be hard. Smiling Mind aims to help Australian small business owners and their teams improve their mental health, wellbeing, and resilience.


Mental health is everyone’s business…

Smiling Mind’s Official Small Business Partner MYOB’s latest SME Mental Health Report, revealed a third (31%) of small and medium sized enterprise (SME) owners and operators consider mental health to be an immediate concern, but almost one in three (30%) find it difficult to talk about. 

 The survey of 1,000 SME owners and operators across the country found:

of SME owners said running their business over the last 12 months has caused them stress*

cited personal feelings of anxiety and 1 in 5 said they have experienced depression over the past year*

of SME owners feel responsible for the mental health and wellbeing of their staff*

Our Small Business Program can help­­.

With the support of our Official Small Business Partner MYOB, we have developed a free mindfulness program for small business owners and operators. The program supports small business owners and their teams to build their mental fitness, using practical mental wellbeing strategies—including meditations, exercises, and discovery activities.  

We’ve added new and targeted content focused on key areas such as:

  • Stress Management

  • Mindfulness Foundations

  • Relationships

  • Resilience
