It seems to me these days that many of us think unless we squeeze just one more thing into our day then we frankly aren’t trying hard enough!
An article the other day suggested a 1/2 hour work out for your lunch hour.  It involved a walk to the gym (just to squeeze in a little extra fat burning) a complex number of exercises and then a walk back to work.  At no point did they tell me when to eat lunch even though it was my 'lunch hour'.  How dare I think about stopping to eat and resting for one whole hour! There just isn’t the time, is there?

As we squeeze more in and time is so precious our heads are buzzing with ‘noise’ – things to do, places to be, TV/radio noise, chatter, email, social media – when does it stop?  For most of my clients it seems it doesn’t and the result is them finding very little time to stop and do absolutely nothing, be totally quiet and give your mind and body a rest.

The opportunity to be still and mindful is proven to help keep stress at bay and improve our feeling of wellbeing. So as I’m all for that I started meditating regularly recently and whilst I’m not some calm, chilled version of my former self, I’m definitely able to unwind & have stopped clock watching quite so much.
