The Saints’ #14 Moses Mbye has today’s tip – TAKE NOTICE – encouraging you to be perhaps be more aware of how you are feeling, and what might be causing you any feeling of stress or anxiety and promoting the idea of mindfulness.

We are also encouraging you to savour the moment too! If you are enjoying something that can boost your mood or makes you feel more positive about life then take the time to enjoy the moment and the environment around you. Moses gives a few tips on how you could maybe do that…
