Meditation and mindfulness

I started using meditation and mindfulness about three years ago and I share what I have learned with others – in my day job and outside work.

Mindfulness is described as”a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.”

There are many different ways to meditate and it compliments the benefits of mindfulness. I tend to meditate on the train on my way into work. My other half meditates whilst doing housework. Standing or sitting still isn’t the only way to meditate.

Read more about meditation and mindfulness on the NHS website. The New York Times has published some handy guides on How to Meditate.

It can be done either  in silence or listening to music (or listening to a guided meditation). Alone or in company.

There is no one way to do it and we can find ways of creating a space in our frequently hectic lives.

I do corporate work and one-to-one sessions. Please get in touch with me for more details.
