“I really enjoyed this morning. So nice to just stop and breathe.” L.D. (Ireland, email)

“I thoroughly enjoyed your event this morning and was copiously note taking when I wasn’t doing the mindfulness exercises.” P.R. (UK, email)
We begin with a simple mindfulness exercises that you can do very easily at home, at work and elsewhere because they are easy to learn and apply.
I explain what mindfulness is and why adding mindfulness into your day can make such a difference to your well-being.
Later we will do a mindfulness of breathing practice and also a mindfulness practice which people find very very relaxing and which many find helps them to sleep when they wake up at night.
You will hear how mindfulness lowers stress and improves well-being; how mindfulness can help you to step back from resentments, regrets and other negative thoughts; and how mindfulness techniques can be a valuable tool as you experience the challenges and pleasures of life.
I have practised mindfulness since the late 1980s, since I first encountered it and found it immediately helpful in my own life. I have taught mindfulness throughout Ireland and in the UK, have demonstrated mindfulness on ITV, RTE and TV3 and have had books on mindfulness published in several countries and several languages. My most recent book is Daily Calm – 100 daily reminders to help you build the mindfulness habit. My aim is to make mindfulness easily accessible to people in their everyday lives rather than mystifying what is a simple and natural approach.
What you learn will be enough to enable you to practise mindfulness at home, at work and elsewhere, starting straight away. As an additional aid you will have access to a video of the event (this video won’t identify participants).
