How to Find Inner Calm

How to Find Inner Calm


Mummy says… With the Festive season almost upon us, as we all fling ourselves into the craziness of it all, I am launching  a series of posts talking about how to find inner calm. You may or may not know that I am a Holistic Therapist, and taught meditation and relaxation classes for many years. I worked with children and adults using a variety of tools and techniques. I also trained as a counsellor, gaining a HNC in Counselling prior to having Pickle.

How to Find Inner Calm

Lots of people dismiss this sort of stuff as a bit airy-fairy, but it really can help us in our busy lives. It takes very little time, costs nothing and many techniques can be practised anywhere.

One of my first posts will be about Meditation.

Meditation is amazing! It is proven to lower blood pressure, ease anxiety, improve general mood and well being, and increase your ability to cope.

There are different types of meditation – and they do not need you to have an ‘empty’ mind, or take hours of your time, or costly training – you can even meditate in ten minutes in your car (obviously not whilst driving!) Mindfulness can be used by anyone – including children, to help with anxiety, stress, worry and more. I will be sharing some useful tool to use with your children which you can practise together.

Another passion of mine is crystals – I am a qualified, experienced crystal therapist and love them! I find children are drawn to them too and crystals can help them in lots of ways.

I will also be sharing exercises for writing, breathing, affirmations, positive thinking and more.

If you are curious, please keep an eye out for my series, I am sure you will find something to help you.

Have you tried any of these to find Inner Calm?


  1. Meditation truly is amazing. Just three difference can really make all the difference to how you feel.

  2. I find myself getting quite stressed and worked up a lot of the time. I could do with something like this.

  3. I could really do with finding my inner calm right now. We’ve been through all kinds of DIY hell in the last two and a half months, and time is running out and we still have more to do (please insert image here of slightly mad looking woman running about in the fashion of Chicken Licken). I used to do meditation along with yoga years ago, and it felt so good. I think maybe I need to make more time for that side of things again, and reclaim some of that calmness back. For my own sake, as well as my poor family.

  4. Can’t wait for this series of posts! I love meditation and it has really helped me a lot in the past. xx

  5. Great post. I am a spiritual person and I like to practice meditation. Can’t wait to see your next posts. Xx

  6. I have used Bach Flower Remedies before and swear by the power of meditation and ‘mindfullness’. I also find adult colouring books a good way to relax – puts me in a semi meditative state!

  8. I meditate every day and I do sleep meditations at night to help me sleep. Since I started meditating I have found that I am much calmer and happier! I haven’t heard of the crystals though. I would like to learn more about that:)

  9. This is something all of us could do with. Looking forward to reading!

  10. I love the sound of this series hun. I have always loved crystals and enjoy reading about how they can help us. I also firmly believe in meditation although never seem to fit it in. It’s not airy fairy to me at all. I also enjoy Reiki!

  11. Positive affirmations always help as does practicing mindfulness
    Will be interesting reading

  12. I could use some inner calm. I’ve never tried crystals before.

  13. Counselling is really useful, being able to speak to a stranger who is non-judgemental can really help
