A sceptic at first Terrence wasn’t sure meditation was for him, he didn’t even know how to go about it. However, a chance meeting with a practitioner sparked his curiosity, all it took was one mindful breath and Terrence was hooked. This lead to years of practice, integration, learning, teaching, and research which as a result has not only has brought him down a new career path but has had a transformative impact on both his physical and mental health too. In this episode Terrence talks about the science behind how meditation affects our thought patterns, how it can become habitual and how to find pockets of mindfulness in our day. Terrence translates this evidence into actionable ways in which we can start to bring more breath, more meditation and more mindfulness into our daily lives.

He supports us in integrating mindfulness into our normal routines in way that results in a whole host of benefits including; reducing stress, anxiety, emotional eating, strengthening our immune system to ultimately enhancing the joy we get from our day to day experiences.
