When our minds are distracted our most precious moments can pass unnoticed and we can end up being on autopilot, too much of the time. Keeping ourselves centred and remembering how to be resilient to stress can be hard, particularly when we are caught up in our fast-paced world. It can be the little things that make the difference and help us to manage. Practising mindfulness can help us become more aware of being in multi-tasking mode and how to learn to slow down to fully appreciate life’s little pleasures. It’s not the only way,  but it can be difficult to remember how to take care of ourselves when we are caught up in our thoughts, therefore we have pulled together some “little things” to bring you into the present moment and help you to do this:

Motivational Thought Cards

Our “motivational thought cards”, are 28 postcards which take you through a mindful journey for the month. They can be used like a little book as they give you some short key points about mindfulness and how to de-stress. You could use them for an inspirational thought for the day,  to help you to adopt a mindful lifestyle, form new habits or guide and centre you each day. It’s like sending a daily post card to yourself, a wee reminder of how to slow down our minds and manage our thoughts.  You could have them by your bedside and use them as you wake or take them with you as you go about your day, or have them at your computer as a prompt to help with our fast paced modern-day life. If you’ve taken a mindfulness course, they allow you to sustain your practice when it’s finished, although, you don’t need to have taken a course to use them. They enable you to pause and take a few minutes each day to ground yourself in the present moment. Research claims that this is very beneficial to both our physical and mental wellbeing, thus being able to get some breathing space each day, even for a short time changes our wellbeing. They come in hessian bag and handy to take anywhere.

(Normally £14.99). Introductory Cost £10.99. including postage.

It comes with a breathing space card. Anyone can use it and you don’t need know anything about mindfulness or have taken a course to gain benefit from it.

Breathing Space Bags

We sell our original “calm in a balm” and face sprits separately to help you maintain ways to get some breathing space. We all know stress has a negative effect on our minds and body, including the skin. Thus, the aromatic combination of lavender, neroli and may chang have relaxing, quietening and uplifting properties. The oils aid in alleviating insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue, tension and have a restoring, replenishing effect on the skin. The aroma helps with nervous exhaustion, restlessness and stress, by calming the mind and having a positive impact on our autonomic nervous system. Overall, its designed to encourage you to slow down and take a little time out to recharge. Take it with you as you go about your day-to-day activities and use it on your lips, hands or neck whenever you need a bit of time out. Apply it at the end of the day by rubbing a large amount into the palms then bring your hands to your face, close your eyes and breathing in the aroma, apply to your face and neck and be in the moment. Comes in a hessian bag with a breathing space card and information for use .
