Anxiety can have a debilitating effect on your life; from the out and out cold fear you feel every day that something terrible is going to happen, to the physical symptoms of chest pain, shoulder and neck tension, headaches, nausea, palpitations and clamminess.
If you suffer from severe anxiety you’ll know that finding anything that can help even reduce symptoms a tiny bit would be a godsend.
I wrote a post a while ago about using vibro acoustic technology in mindfulness after I was offered a taster session. The taster session was exploring how using this sensory experience could help develop a mindful practice, or even help improve mental health.
I’ve had a lot of emails recently from people asking how they become mindfulness teachers or tutors so I thought it might be useful to give you a bit of an overview.

When we are going through a difficult time it can be really hard to remember to breathe, to find the time to meditate and to remember all the teaching about letting go of thoughts non judgementally.
Kindness. It’s something we often hear in relation to other people isn’t it? Be kind to others. Have compassion for those in greater need than yourself. Offer kindness to those around you.
But when we start thinking about the kindness and compassion we offer ourselves, we often discover we’re pretty low down on our own list of priorities
Why do we put ourselves last?
Note: This post should have been posted the week I started eating mindfully – or trying to, but things have got in the way of me posting. So I’ve moved on a bit since then but new updates will be coming soon.
Well after a year of fretting over turning 40, my 41st year is going to be much more positive.
