Take Five Cue Cards
Crafty’s ‘Take Five’ cards were created by drawing on Aine’s experience and current recommended guidelines within the therapy field. These cards offer simple and effective ‘cues’ to help you take a moment and come back to a centred place. They are easy to follow techniques that Áine used as a powerful tool in her work with children who were suffering from overwhelm. These mindful tips are practical and grounding, so anyone can use them, even if they are new to breathing and mindful techniques. They are perfect for when you need to find a place of calm in moments of stress, or if you simply want to practice a mindful exercise to begin your day and claim a moment for yourself before moving out into the world.

Pop the cue card in your bag or wallet, into your bedside locker or work drawer, or slip it into your glovebox, as a way to always have it on hand if you feel the need to practice for a relaxing moment, or when you might be finding the day’s stresses piling up. If you have a friend who might be run off their feet, this may be a helpful tool to pass on, to show both practical support and also that you are thinking of them. If you have a child who is anxious, you can practice the exercises together at home, then tuck the card into their schoolbag as a way of reminding them of your supportive presence and your shared mindful game.

Having a physical item to hold is often a part of creating a hew habit or practice – to see and touch your cue card is a way of externalising and facilitating the intention. A little talisman tucked somewhere close by to help you create a lifelong habit of soothing, re-energising and bolstering yourself when you need a little confidence!

WASI:

Bantry native Claire O Sullivan took her lifelong love of the sea and created a unique range of seaweed products and treatments that honour the ancient Irish reverence for the sea and the nourishment it provides. Hand harvested, mixed and bottled alongside her husband, Eli, WASI offers an earth-friendly, lovingly crafted range of unique treats to bring your body the micronutrients of the sea, using ethically hand harvested wild Irish seaweed.

www.wasi.ie
@wasiseaweed

”To ensure the vitality of seaweed for generations to come, we carefully cut only a small portion of the plant. Before we return to this plant again, it will have completely regenerated itself….that is the magic of seaweed! We make small batches each week with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, then drive to the health food stores in West Cork to deliver our products”

Claire O’Sullivan was raised on a small family farm just outside Bantry town. Growing up, seaweed played a fundamental role in the health of the land and her family – for many generations in Ireland, gathering and spreading seaweed on the land was key for encouraging fertility and a successful harvest. In recent times, remembrance of this ancient gift from our seas has been slipping away–Claire strives to have seaweed reintegrated into our food culture.

Claire’s secret weapon is her amazing partner Eli. Together, they make all the WASI products: hand harvesting, mixing, bottling and blending.

Their passion for seaweed, its healing and nutritious qualities have led them to establish WASi. Creating delicious, user friendly products they are determined to see seaweed back on kitchen tables everywhere for all to enjoy. For them, there isn’t another form of vegetation on the planet possessing such a perfect balance of vitamins, minerals and trace elements.

Wild Atlantic Wicks:

From the heart of The Wild Atlantic Way, Galway duo, Anne Marie & Eimear, capture the essence of the Irish gra for wit and warmth in their beautiful handcrafted candles. Launched in 2020, research and passion brought to life their vision of creating unique scents with natural and gentle ingredients: offering hand-poured candles of natural wax, eco friendly wood wicks, complete with hand designed labels.

www.wildatlanticwicks.com
@wildatlanticwicks

“We are makers of handmade candles based in Galway on the west coast of Ireland, in the middle of the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way.

Wild Atlantic Wicks was set up after many discussions during the lockdown of our love for good quality scented candles.We realised that although there are thousands of independent candle makers, there were no candles available with ‘personality’ that are fun and quirky or reflect emotions and events. After completing an online candle course, months of research, trial runs and testing scents Wild Atlantic Wicks was born in June 2020. (All done in the middle of home schooling and working from home!) We have carefully selected unique scents and use 100% natural wax. Our candles are hand poured with wood wicks, which create a beautiful crackle as they burn. All our labels are designed and hand made by us.

We hope you enjoy your candles as much as we have enjoyed this journey. Go raibh maith agat! Anne-Marie & Eimear”
