So, meditation is the regular process of training your mind to focus and redirect your thoughts.
Meditation is a way to bring focus to our breath.
When we meditate it’s a way for us to get away from our everyday lives without going anywhere.
Time for us. Whether it’s 5 minutes or an hour. It’s a time for us to focus on ourselves.
As we meditate it’s an opportunity for us to focus within. To focus internally and check in with ourselves.
An opportunity for some time and some space for you.
Meditation is something we can all do. It may take time and practice but we can build up slowly. There is no set rule about how long we should meditate for.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED FOR MEDITATION?
You don’t need any special equipment to start your meditation practice. Some people prefer to sit on the floor, some prefer to sit on the sofa/on a chair. Some like to lie down. I always suggest doing what works best for you. If you are comfortable in your practice you are more likely to continue with it. And you may wish to have a blanket close by so you don’t become cold.
WILL MEDITATION HELP ME?
Taking some time out for you is so important so you can enjoy some time and some space for YOU.
HOW CAN I HELP YOU?
So, I run a term time Meditation on a Monday – it’s 35 or so minutes each Monday I go live in a private Facebook group with a meditation session. Once the session is there it’s available for the duration of the block so you can revist at any point. So if you can’t make 8pm on Monday you can catch up at a time that works for you. You can find out more here. My sessions are suitable for beginners as well as those who have a regular practice.
I have also produced a meditation/relaxation gift box which is perfect for you or perfect as a gift for friends/family. The box is filled with goodies to support your meditation journey and you will also have 10 MP3 meditations to download which you can listen to at any time and also some meditation prompt cards.
