One mum's journey to find her inner calm using mindfulness

Since becoming a mum, life has been extra-busy with never a dull moment! Taking a couple of minutes to focus on my breathing can work wonders and give a sense of being back in control.

This blog is a personal account of how I found mindfulness and how it's helped me to enjoy being a mum more. You'll find entertaining stories of life with two little ones, along with lots of brilliant mindful tips, techniques and resources that have added a hint of calm to the ups and downs of being a mummy. I hope you find the tips useful and they help you to find your inner calm too 🙂

Below are 4 of my most popular posts which give actionable mindfulness tips for parents and children, followed by my latest blog posts.
