(4-Week Mindfulness for Busy People Course)

“I found the course so useful & really enjoyed it. I found myself really looking forward to our class each week to learn a few more tips on teaching me to slow down, relax & take time for me.

There was nothing about the class that I didn't like. Maybe the only thing I might have changed was making it a little longer as it went very quickly.

I had no idea what Mindfulness was, but now think everyone needs to experience it & they should teach it in schools. .Just imagine if all young people could learn Mindfulness, how much happier they would be and what a better, more caring world we would live in.

I think I surprised myself at how little time I take for myself & how much around me I take for granted, & all the beautiful things I didn't notice.

I found Joy a great teacher, she was very easy to talk to & we all worked together sharing experiences which was great as I didn't realise how many people are just like me. There are so many people so busy with life they don't actually enjoy their journey through life.

I definitely feel I have changed since learning just a little about mindfulness. I now slow down & take things in around me a lot more. I have started to stop worrying if I don't get things done that will wait. The main thing is I am being a lot kinder to myself!!

I know lots of people that I think Mindfulness would help, although I'm not sure they would believe it can help as so many people have closed minds about these things. I have started talking to people about being Mindful & am trying to help friends who seem very negative, to try & enjoy life & be kind to themselves & others.

Thank you Joy so much for spending time with us, I really enjoyed it & would be very interested in learning more about Mindfulness.”

A Personal Perspective On Anxiety

Anxiety affects different people in different ways. The many common symptoms and signs vary, and most of them are unpleasant and can feel debilitating, or even life threatening, especially when they ‘sneak up on you unawares’.

There are endless resources available online regarding anxiety, its different forms, symptoms and remedies. The best way to understand it if you’re a sufferer, is to start noticing specifically how it  manifests in your own mind, body and life. Then you can learn how to calm down the symptoms one by one.

Specific symptoms that affect your breathing, digesion, heart rate and thoughts are often a sign that your ‘survival’ part of your brain is misinterpreting what’s actually happening around you, sending out false signals of panic and alarm.

In this fast-paced usually stressful world, most adults have experienced some symptoms of anxiety, so it’s more common than you might think. Furtunately, we now have some new, and better ways of dealing with it than were available even just a few years ago. Two of these are Mindfulness and Havening.

This article from Newstatesman highlights the author’s personal experience with anxiety, how he dealt with it and better controlled the situation.

Understanding anxiety – my inside view of a debilitating disorder and how to control it

As I stepped out of the office one evening after a routine day at work, I found myself glued to the floor. Legs bolted, knees quivering, heart racing – I was cemented into the ground by something paralysing. I had to work out what was happening, and fast.
