I'm a stress reduction expert - ask me anything

Postby darrensurrey » 03 Sep 2018, 20:18

(As per OldGuy's suggestion...)

With a background of over 30 years in meditation and tai chi, as well as training in reiki and Emotional Freedom Techniques and being a sports and fitness coach, I have a broad understanding of holistic health.

I have also worked in the corporate world (banking, publishing and higher education sectors).

I give talks on stress reduction using mindfulness at events and businesses in London, UK. I have also read a lot of books on buddhism and taoism which I discuss where appropriate.

You're welcome to ask me anything about any aspect of stress reduction.

(Note: I reserve the right to simply advise you to see a doctor if I suspect things require face to face and/or professional medical help; I am not a doctor or psychologist.)

Thanks for the question. In mindfulness meditation, it's about being in the present moment on purpose and without judgement. So you practice just focusing on the present moment and accepting what is going on in your life. Practice is the keyword here.

Thanks for the question (again! :) ).

When you practice mindfulness, it is about being in the present moment, just focusing on the breath and not thinking about what may or may not be about to happen. In the present moment, you might be sitting on your sofa with your tablet checking this forum. You are safe and well right now. Take a moment to appreciate this.

With mindfulness, you can also practice acceptance (of situations, life etc) and non-judgementalism (not considering things to be good or bad but to just be what they are).
