Ever felt like you’re always anticipating disaster, no matter how small the situation? This is known as catastrophic thinking, a mental loop where we assume the worst will inevitably happen. In this article, we’ll unravel why our mind takes us down this dark alley of ‘worst-case scenario’ assumption and offer six effective strategies to break free from its grip. Ready for a thought revolution?

The middle way
approach to meditation
We don't do dogma, and we don't do shallow self-help. At MindOwl, we recognise that the journey towards a complete mind means different things for different people. We pay tribute to Eastern spiritual traditions, but our practical guidance is also shaped by modern science's work on the human mind. This middle way approach allows anyone to learn about the amazing benefits of meditation and mindfulness.
Join a meditation community
Mindfulness is proven to help strengthen your relationships with others, and we take that goal seriously. Joining MindOwl means having access to an online community of like-minded individuals, via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and across our digital courses. Discussing your practice with others gives you access to insight, advice, and guidance on how to get the best out of meditation and mindfulness.
Find the right meditation
style for you
Meditation is deeply personal, so what works for others might not work for you - and what works for you can change each day! That's why we teach a range of techniques related to mindfulness, psychology and breathwork, and dedicate lots of attention to helping people find their meditation fit.
The problem with
It's impossible to achieve blissful happiness in 10 minutes, despite whatever quick fixes meditation apps seem to offer. While apps can be a good place to start meditating, we believe that in order to understand and adapt your own mind, you must learn why it behaves the way it does. This psychological framing guides much of our course content. After all, mindfulness shouldn't start and end when you pick up your phone - it's a versatile practice that can impact every aspect of your daily life.
Be the change you want to see in the world
Meditation allows you to personally embody the qualities and changes you want to see in the world. We can't solve all the world's problems using meditation, but by looking internally for solutions, we can realise that the mind is often the main source of greed, anger, and division. Change your outlook, and try to set an example for how to live a better life.
