The launch of the programme for the third Galway Food Festival was held on Monday in one of my favourite Galway hang out spots, the lovely House Hotel. The late lamented Gerry Gavin had launched the first festival programme and the delightful Máirín Uí Chomáin the second. This year Ronan Byrne (aka The Friendly Farmer) did the honours beautifully. In a break with convention, they had not sought out a food celebrity, but in keeping with the theme of the festival, 'Food Traditions', a man of the land was called for. JP McMahon, festival chairperson, and Heather Flaherty also spoke at the launch.

Mindfulness — what is it, and what are the effects?

Perhaps to begin with a definition is best. Mindfulness is knowing what is happening while it is happening, with a non-judgmental attitude, indeed an open curious attitude. So what does this mean for you? With so many demands of modern living, we often follow habitual patterns. We repeat again and again the same old reactions to life events, particularly when our buttons are pushed. This usually leads to the same old unsatisfactory outcomes. As Tony Robbins once said, “Do what you always do, and you will get what you always get.” To enhance our own wellbeing, and respond to life’s challenges in a new way, it is helpful to train our own minds to become more aware of, and to weaken, our habitual patterns.
