Mindfulness and meditation have both been shown to have physical and mental health benefits

For both men and women!

Confused between the two practices?
Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, who created the concept of mindfulness says practising mindfulness is actually a form of meditation; meditation in action.

Mindfulness is simply awareness
It's not something you have to practice for 20 minutes at a time. You can be mindful anywhere;
At work during meetings and at your desk,
with friends showing them you care
and at home making your relationships more special
You can be mindful while having a conversation when your full attention and awareness is on the conversation and the other person.
The person you are talking to will enjoy your full attention and focus on their words and body language.
You may use simple, quick mindfulness exercises to bring you back to the moment  - and away from the problem/issue which is on your mind - bringing you clarity, resilience and a moment of peace.

Add to this practice an evocative blend of Aromatherapy essential oils to keep with you and use whenever you need to bring yourself back to this place of peace.

I am not only practising mindfulness in Malvern, Hereford and Worcester but also practice on Skype allowing you to connect with me wherever you are: with your Aromatherapy blend winging it's way to you in the post.

How do I cultivate Mindfulness?

It's not all about sitting in a lotus position it’s about living your life as if it really mattered, be aware of your surroundings moment by moment by moment. 

Here are a few key components of practising mindfulness;

Pay close attention to your breathing, especially when you’re feeling intense emotions.

Notice—really notice—what you’re sensing in a given moment, the sights, sounds, and smells that ordinarily slip by without reaching your conscious awareness.

Recognise that your thoughts and emotions are fleeting and do not define you, an insight that can free you from negative thought patterns.

Tune into your body’s physical sensations, from the water hitting your skin in the shower to the way your body rests in your office chair. 

 

Walking meditation, where you focus on the movement of your body as you take step after step, your feet touching and leaving the ground—an everyday activity we usually take for granted. This exercise is often practised walking back and forth along a path 10 paces long, though it can be practised along most any path

Loving-kindness meditation, involves extending feelings of compassion toward people, starting with yourself then branching out to someone close to you, then to an acquaintance, then to someone giving you a hard time, then finally to all beings everywhere.

Try the raspberry exercise, where you slowly use all of your senses, one after another, to observe a raisin in great detail, from the way it feels in your hand to the way its taste bursts on your tongue. This exercise is intended to help you focus on the present moment, and can be tried with different foods.
