Be more mindful

3 step action plan

Mindfulness will allow you to sharpen your perceptions, be calmer and enhance your creative powers.

Mindfulness is the ability to bring your awareness to the present moment- your thoughts, feelings, what’s going on in your body and the environment around you.

Stopping your mind from racing with thoughts about the past or the future helps to honour the present moment, and strengthens the connection with your body and mind. Reducing tension in the mind is also said to help release tension in the body.

Mindfulness, and focusing on the now, is a skill you can develop – sign-up to our 3 step action plan and get started today on your path to being more mindful.

How often are you mindlessly rushing through all your tasks in a day, without stopping to focus on what you are actually doing?

Mindful activity involves really paying attention and being completely engaged in what you are doing, when you're doing it.

Bring calm and presence into your daily life with more mindful activity.

I deleted my fb account nearly a year ago and have only email that I class as social media. Life is 110% better

I love my morning meditation, however, finding time for evening meditation is a greater challenge for me.
Gaining the motivation to consistently sit still and meditate instead of flopping next to my husband in front of the mindless television, is a habit yet to be developed in my life!! Having said this, I know that even writing about the struggle helps.!!
Tonight I will try again - 8.30pm TV off, meditation on!!

To bring calm at the end of my day, I listen to music with a water theme such as rain on a roof.
