The festive season can be fun, but can also be incredibly busy and stressful. Family get-togethers can be fraught with tension and sometimes it all gets a bit much. Mindfulness is an ancient Buddhist practice which is very relevant for life today, especially at this time of year. It is a very simple concept. Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally. This increases awareness, clarity and acceptance of our present-moment reality.
If you would like to collaborate with a guest blog, please get in touch by email. I'm interested in articles about fertility, pregnancy, parenthood, complementary therapies, book or product reviews, local practitioners or classes, and general health and well-being. My horizons are pretty broad, so if you have something you'd like to write about, please do!
