Need more mindful activities?

here are five ways to help mind and body live in the moment.

Stress reduction

Want to incorporate a bit of mindfulness into your life but not sure how to begin? There are several locations around that offer stress reducing activities for everyday life.

Eating

Do you see chopping your vegetables as an opportunity for a bit of reflection? How about waiting for the kettle to boil? If the answer’s no but you want to change this, there are now classes in how to enjoy and savour these mini moments of calm. There are people who can advice on mindful eating habits.

Relationships

Anger, irritation and those niggling feelings that your partner is not really “present” some of the time are all common issues in relationships that can drive a couple apart. That’s where mindfulness training can help. Instead of snapping or saying the thing you’ll later regret, those in mindful relationships make an effort to live with their feelings, accept them and examine them without acting on them, which sounds easier said than done!

Adventures

Whether you fancy a guided walk, mindful camping or a sea kayaking experience. Wilderness adventures like kayaking and white water rafting aim to help us recognise peacefulness in everyday activity. Just a day break can do wonders.

Spas

Spend a day at the Spa silently walking and revelling in the wonders of nature on this one- that promises to reinvigorate body and soul and reconnect us with the wonders of nature found upon our doortsteps. The day ends with a session about learning to appreciate and recognise the wilderness in our everyday lives.
