One thing that helps me flourish (and keeps me sane) as a modern, single, working mummy is meditation. It is one of the best tools, I have learnt and a core component of my life and business.
Psychology Today says;
"Meditation is the practice of turning your attention to a single point of reference. It can involve focusing on the breath, on bodily sensations, or on a word or phrase known as a mantra. In other words, meditation means turning your attention away from distracting thoughts and focusing on the present moment. Meditating is deceptively simple."
I like to meditate twice a day once, first thing in the morning to give me an energy boost to start the day and then just before my evening meal, to reset my energy as I go into the evening.
It's especially useful as a boost when I have been looking at my laptop screen too long too, and my eyes are tired and sore or I"m feeling frazzled.
I usually meditate for either 10/20 minutes at a time, which is very manageable, I have even been known to meditate in the car on my lunch break!
Sometimes I repeat a mantra, sometimes I listen to a guided meditation, or sometimes I will sit in total silence.
I also use mindfulness meditation with my EFT clients during treatments.
For those new to meditation, I highly recommend the FREE 21 Day meditation experiences with Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey, as it's the closest thing to Transcendental Meditation I have found.
This latest series is called Energize Your Life: Secrets for a Youthful Spirit. and it starts on Monday, 29th October, 2018.

Youth is not skin-deep; it is soul-deep. Find your way to the ever-present, boundless source of energy and lightness of being inside of you" Deepak Chopra
I recommend this to all my clients, and the challenge is beautifully produced, easy to follow and about ten mins long, so extremely easy to fit into a busy schedule.

I am seeing more and more ladies coming to me for energy healing who have on the outside a perfect life, amazing career, beautiful family, everything they could want but are beginning to feel burnt out, stressed, have high anxiety and beginning to struggle to manage their normal day to day routines.
As a Holistic Practitioner, I take into consideration the whole person, including physical, mental and spiritual aspects, when treating a health condition or promoting wellness.
I employ complementary methods and alternative approaches to health in my practices, such as Reiki, EFT, Mindfulness, meditation, movement and the use of therapeutic grade organic essential oils.
I strongly believe in the benefits of integrating Complementary and Alternative Medicine with a Conventional Healthcare Practice and I have a passion for energy medicine and science-based healing.
Energy healing is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind and it gives wonderful results.
