As we enter into our fourth week of quarantine or cocooning, I’d like to ask you how are you breathing?
Are you filling up your lungs with air regularly each day?
Can you fill your lungs up with air or are you stuck in fear and anxiety?
Can you move out of that fear and breath not only into your lungs but into your tummy and torso?

Connection and Immunity are key to helping us move forward through the Covid-19 pandemic.
Conversations with Calm Therapy is a project where I interview a series of holistic therapists and business owners during the Covid-19 pandemic. This is to create connection amongst business owners during isolation. It also offers the viewer of these interviews tips on how to cope with sudden change, how to manage your fear that rises with uncertainty and perhaps learn how to release that fear from your body. I’ll also be asking each guest for any useful rituals or activities we can add to our daily routines during lockdown.
My first interview is with Sarah Weller, a qualified Parenting Consultant and Family Relationship Coach.

Non essential contact and now “Lockdown” means I have put my treatments side of my business on hold for now.
So I have started up Conversations with Calm Therapy.
I am interviewing holistic therapists and business people for a max of 10 mins each.
I ask the same 3 questions to each guest.
I will ask are how to manage peoples reaction to change, release fear and create useful rituals and activities during lock down.
WHY AM I DOING THIS? Give’s me focus Keeps me social It keeps the holistic community connected It keeps my interviewees present on social media.
MY AUDIENCE WILL GAIN New techniques how to cope with change, stress, fear in these challenging times. Creates a new positive outlook for you. Creates connection whilst we are in isolation. Ideas for rituals and activities during lockdown. Improves your health. You will gain focus and clarity.
The main thing is to create connection, communication, raise the vibration.

Christmas is a time of fun and festive cheer! There’s decorations to put up, gifts to wrap and Christmas day to prepare for. Do you glide your through this Christmas season effortlessly, or do you come out the other end feeling more frazzled than the turkey on a bad day…?!
Here are some tips to help you keep your cool.
Enjoy the preparation.
There’s plenty you can do to enjoy the preparations towards Christmas. If you shop on the high street, make sure you take some time for a coffee or some lunch during that day. Make putting up the tree a family occasion, or if you live alone, invite a friend over and have a sherry whilst hanging up your tinsel and baubles! Spend an evening looking through your cook books, which recipes are your favourite and easy to make for Christmas dinner?
2. Ask for help!
If you have too much to do, then ask for help! Ask a friend or family member to help take on some tasks to prepare for Christmas festivities. Perhaps they would like to join in and feel part of the preparation.
3. Do something for someone else.
Do you have a neighbour who lives alone? Or perhaps you have a friend who has had a difficult year? Doing something for another person can often give you that “feel good factor” . It may mean joining them for a cuppa for an hour. Taking your friend out for a change of scenery could do you both the world of good. You could visit a local Christmas market or book to see your local choir sing Christmas carols.
4. Schedule in some ME time!
You’ve done it! You’ve got through Christmas! Now what about you? Have you scheduled any time out for you? Some Calm Therapy could be the perfect way to treat yourself after the Christmas rush.
