Catherine Sherlock, yoga and meditation teacher at Yoga from the Inside in Richmond NSWMy name is Catherine Sherlock. Teaching mindfulness in groups over several years has demonstrated to me how incredible the relief and benefits can be for people experiencing a range of mild to medium mental health issues.

Especially during this exceptional time, I want people experiencing stress to have access to simple and effective tools to support their mental health. That’s why I created Press Pause Mindful Moments™, an audio package designed to integrate seamlessly into your day, at the office, at home or any environment.

Press Pause Mindful Moments consists of five 12-minute guided mindfulness sessions and an illustrated workbook to provide guidance in establishing a practice and to understand what is happening in your nervous system. While mindfulness is not a replacement for health professional intervention, it is a proactive way to help manage stress, anxiety and/or depression. Comments from users of Press Pause Mindful Moments:

“Press Pause Mindful Moments has provided me with the tools to manage my day with calmness and clarity. Taking the time to breathe, focus and re-set has made a huge difference to my perception of and reaction to any challenging situation I might be subjected to.”

“It took a while for me to come to terms with the working from home arrangement and then I discovered Press Pause Mindful Moments. These audio files helped me to relax, take the anxiousness out of WFH and focus on what was in front of me.”

“I used the body scan everyday just before lunch. It was a great way to switch off from the work in front of me and tell myself that now is the time to nourish my body with good food and calm the mind.”

“’Choose your Anchor’ was another one that I tried to listen to 10 minutes before the end of the day … when working from home it is easy to keep working past the end time, however these audios assisted with making sure I found the balance.”

Research and evidence support mindfulness

During challenging times our nervous system moves into its survival response, changing blood chemistry and affecting mood, satisfaction and performance. It is so important during times of stress to allow the body to come back to balance.

Mindfulness is now proven as an effective intervention for stress, offering a direct pathway to trigger the relaxation response, decreasing stress hormones like cortisol and increasing “feel good” hormones such as oxytocin and serotonin. As little as ten minutes a day has been scientifically shown to have a significant benefit.

Mindfulness has the potential to enhance positive emotions and promote resilience. Press Pause Mindful Moments offers this stress management technique as an accessible resource that can be easily incorporated into your day. Stress is also a significant factor in the onset of many  diseases; integrating mindfulness into daily life supports not only mental health but physical health as well.
