Mindfulness

Mindfulness is getting you to think about now and not what has or may happen.  Thinking about your thoughts at the moment it's happening and dealing with each feeling in turn.

Mindfulness helps us to create space around our worries so they do not consume you.  This way of dealing with our feelings means we can explore our stress in a safe way.  I am currently trying to do this and find out more about it, so please feel free to get in touch if you have information or opinions on this subject by clicking the button above.

I was surprised to find information on this subject on the NHS, below are some websites if you wish to look further into this:

Here are some apps to try out too:  Concious Breathing, Smiling Mind and Head Space.

Breathing techniques alone are meant to be really good for you too.  When I try any of these out for a while I will write up what I thought, feel free to get in touch and let me know what you thoughts too.

Mindfulness is a really great way to destress and keep a balance of your thoughts and feelings as they come along in your day.

This can take a bit of time to get it so that it is working for you to your desired level but any practice will be helpful to your mental health and wellbeing.

Mindfulness practice exercises include breathing, visualisation, muscle relaxation and meditation.  Do what suits you best and at your own pace.

Mindfulness for Children

Aimed at children between 6-10 years old

Mindfulness for children is becoming more and more widely used.  It is getting common place in schools in the infant years. 

Minfulness can really help children in a variety of ways.

It is best with young children to keep any sessions short, focused and fun. SSF.

This way they won't have a chance to get too distracted and if it is fun they will be inclined to wan to do it again.

The hope is it will become natural to them and carry it in to their adulthood.
