Living in the moment 

I’ve spent a lot of time studying the way children play. They amaze me how they are able to live in the moment. I watch the way my children play, interact and not have a thought about anything else but that moment, now! 

I had a discussion the other day about how I would have done things differently when I was a child. How a bit of snow made the energy change, to pure excitement and happiness.  How the field being open to play football was the highlight. How we enjoyed that moment.

It made us think that as children we would have cherished the moments more, enjoyed life a bit differently, but then it crossed my mind, that if we thought like that then we wouldnt be living in the moment we would be thinking about what we could do differently and change.  

This for me is a huge lesson in the way that we acted that way as a child because we were living in the moment at that time, embracing life as it is. 

Tomorrow I’m going to be more embracing, enjoying the sunshine, not thinking about tomorrow.

Just be in the moment 

Just being ! 


Oak Tree Mindfulness 


Just a little back ground on my programme – Oak Tree Mindfulness 

This is a wonderful program aimed at helping people utilise skills they already have, and allowing them to change their outlook on an everyday situation.  

It’s also a great skill to have, to help with anxiety,stress and many other medical issues. 

The oak tree mindfulness is primarily aimed at children of all ages. Children experience a lot more stress now than ever before, whether that stress is due to starting nursery,  sat exams,  social peer pressure or everyday strains. 

They have so much to deal with and when I think back to when I was a child I don’t remember having all this to pressure.

I am a mom, an aunt, a school buddy. I have worked with children of all ages and have had to adapt to many situations, this is why,  more than ever I want to help. 

My programme helps children to apply mindfulness in each situation. It’s about finding a coping mechanism for them,  which will in turn help them change the way they think and utilise these skills to help in situations beyond their control. They won’t be able to change a situation,  more so cope with a situation.

We are slowly becoming are 24/7 world. Family life balance is becoming a lot harder to manage due to the restrictions parents have, children are aware earlier to the every stress. 

More to come on this later on…..
