Leave the stress, worries come to a class

Stress? Anxious? Being Present Now to Bring Calm To You

You might question how being “present in the moment” is a positive thing – when you’re stuck, feeling sad, stressed, anxious or depressed. But stop, the emotions you are feeling are actually unlikely to be related to the present moment but to a past or future event. Mindfulness connects you to the current moment, a time you can influence now.

Think of the stress reaction – muscles tighten, stomach churns, become sweaty, breathing difficulties, fight or flight adrenaline/cortisol hormones kick in. Our thoughts go back to a similar experience and the negative beliefs that we created from that experience and the emotions this brings up, triggering stress. However, these hormones aren’t burnt up (from running away) and so remain in the body keeping us on “high alert” creating issues of anxiety, panic attacks, sleep problems, headaches and restlessness.

The alternative mindful response is to move out of the flight/flight response and into a “being”  response – to slowdown, notice breath, feel grounded, acknowledge the thoughts (don’t judge them). Preventing the release of more stress hormones, allowing the release of the calming hormone oxytocin instead.

What is mindfulness – it’s about “being in the present moment”, watching your thoughts without engaging and judging them. It’s about quietening the mind and when thoughts come up replying with a “ah that’s interesting” and then letting them go, not creating an inner dialogue/emotion about the thought.

The benefits of mindfulness are to allow you to relax. Mindfulness is shown to reduce stress, tension, anxiety and depression, reduce anger outbursts and generally be a positive tool in your daily life.

Who can Mindful Meditation classes benefit? Anyone who is looking to reduce their stress levels, support better sleep, feel calmer & more in control of their emotions, anyone who is looking to relieve their symptoms of anxiety or depression, or simply anyone who is looking for an hour to “be” themselves & relax and renew themselves.

Children arguments again? – time to SleepTalk(TM)!

I’m sure my story isn’t unusual if you have school aged children – or indeed  more than one child! The first week of the schools holiday goes fairly well, lots of playdates and things to do and then slowly the children spend more time together and the arguments start….

Linked in to the arguments is then the sibling rivalry, an issue any parent of multiple children will be only too aware!!! The issue of sibling rivalry was present in my family for a long time after the birth of my daughter, so much that I found a technique that really worked to support. It was hard trying to explain to a 3/4 year old that love was infinite and there was more than enough Mummy love to go around the whole family and as the family grew so did the love available. Infinite is a difficult concept for a 4 year old!

I was lucky to be recommended to a SleepTalk consultant who I worked with on the self-esteem program for children created by Joane Goulding. The difference it made to my family was immense and in 2014 I trained in it and am now an Accredited Sleeptalk Consultant 

Sleeptalk is a proven 30 year old program, with amazing results for children with a huge range of emotional, behavioural and anxiety issues.

It takes just two minutes a night and is carried out as your child sleeps, what a simple gift! The time it takes for the kettle to boil can improve your child’s emotional resilence and end tantrums, toilet, food, bedwetting, anger outbursts and sibling rivalry.

I don’t know why I stopped doing it but, I can guarantee I’m back on it now! The results often happen quickly and last a life time. The foundation statement is a lovely thing to say as your child sleeps (yes this isn’t a process to get your child to sleep!). It changes the whole family, all is calmer and well just nicer! Kids get on, so less shouting by anyone and a happier holiday full of making memories happens!
