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.

What do you call yourself?
What other names do you answer to?
How do you introduce yourself?
When are you “you” and not a role?
I’ve been thinking about this more and how I introduce myself. Most often I’m “Hello I’m Rom, Mum to x”, when I’m working “I’m Romella, I’m all about sharing quick simple tools to bring you into balance and calm”. It’s only occasionally that I’m “just” me. But there’s no just about it.
The person I am is part of all the roles I have in life; as mother, wife, daughter, teacher, friend, therapist, leader… It’s my mindset, my actions, my beliefs, my objectives, my aims, my experiences which all become part of who I am – the real me.
How often are you your true self – not fulfilling the role of Mum, Daughter, Carer, cleaner, cook, laundry manager?
I’m finding I need to switch off from my roles and make sure I spend some time being me. This might mean that the ironing isn’t done very frequently, that I have my head in a book just for fun, that I need some lone time to meditate (maybe with a nap afterwards).
I really need time alone to “just be”, in order to be the best person I can to fulfill the roles I love to do. If I don’t get a good nights sleep, or the children fight bedtimes & I don’t get to switch off in the evening, or if I don’t meditate or miss my doTERRA supplements – then I won’t be the best person I can be. I get angry. upset, emotional.
I react differently to how my calm, normal self would have done in the same circumstances. I might blame them (the child, husband, other driver), but in reality it was me – my not prioritising myself, by not doing things that nurture and sort “me”, things that bring me into balance and calm. Often those around us share lessons with us that can go misunderstood or unrecognised.
Its important that we look after ourselves – as the slogan says – “You’re worth it”. If you aren’t looking after yourself, how can you look after others?

Come and join me on this chocolate experience. You have a voucher to buy whatever egg or chocolate you want from your favourite shop. I visited the small sweet shop from my childhood! The some mindful senses-ful meditation.
Just 10 ish minutes to meditate and relax
Earlier this week it was a glorious day and I was walking along the River Severn, near the Centre where I work. It was beautiful day, grass glimmering in sunlight, sound of the river, bird singing. A beautiful mindful moment for me. It replenished me completely.
So I recorded a few one minute videos to share this awesome, special place with you.
Today is International Women’s Day – so I’ve recorded this short meditation to allow us to connect, send love and healing to all women who need it. It only takes about 7 minutes Continue reading “International Women’s Day – Meditation”
