Mindfulness is the practice of ‘being fully present in the moment’. It’s a different sort of awareness to the ‘automatic pilot’ that we are so often immersed in – like when we’re driving or walking and don’t notice the details of the journey because we’re lost in thought. It can often be very difficult to be ‘in the moment’ as we can very easily become distracted by what is going on around us or by our own thoughts. People can ‘train’ to be more mindful in many ways such as through doing mindfulness courses, listening to cds, reading books or participating in mindfulness retreats, although probably the most helpful way to learn is with an experienced mindfulness teacher.
"Its only when I look I realise how things were getting me down and how much of myself I had lost because of the bullying. I am strong again and my anxiety is manageable."
Helen - Thank You! I feel incredibly grateful to have found you. You made such an instant impact on my life and even though you only got to help me for a short period, it was invaluable time to me. You have such an amazing aura and made me feel so at ease straight away. I know I will take the lessons that you have thought me with me for the rest of my life.
