A few other things I’ve learnt to steer clear of on my journey down to my toes…..
The last 20 months of my life haven't ended up how I had envisaged them a good 5 years back. Let alone 2 years back……
A corporate flyer… I knew the wrung on the ladder I wanted to reach, the amount of money I needed to afford our nice home and the endless search for the company that I could live out my working years with to feel secure and stable ….
Normally when one hears or smells lavender the mind may automatically jump to "oh that reminds me of a Nana!" And in some ways I don’t have a problem with that! It takes me back to my time with my Nan and it certainly brings a smile to my face.

Over the past month I have been reacquainted with my 6 year old self. A moment in time that I struggle to remember.
As you may know, I have been exploring different methods of meditation, or ways that I can be mindful, still and calm in body and mind, and in ways that don’t necessarily require me to perch on a cushion in silence.
With much excitement, I would like to introduce you to Michelle. Michelle is the first of our Intimate Conversations with Wellbeing Explorers, and as soon as I heard of her story; I knew it was one that needed to be shared.
Please meet Michelle, today she shares her intimate and enlightening moments as she treks across the French Pyrenees from the small town St Jean Pied de Port, across Spain, to finish in Santiago de Compostela…. 790 kms walked.
When beginning a meditation practice, learning to sit and be calm AND still for 2 minutes can easily feel like 10!

Have you tried to take time away from your phone for 15 - 30 minutes, leaving the sound switched on?
