📌Kids Workshop Mindfulness is next week Thursday!
Email monique@easynowmindfulness to register your children!
Hope you had a nice long weekend! We were home, spending some time together, no pressure, no stress.
One of the attitudes of mindfulness is to be non-judgmental.
We are judging all the time and this keeps us safe when we are crossing a road.
However we often judge out of habit, and this can affect how we feel. Judging ourselves negatively, or judging others in a negative way, gives us negative feelings and makes us feel disconnected from others.
So this week, try to be aware of your judging, and if you can, try to change your mind into judging a little less, so you feel a little happier.

Welcome Spring and September! After three years I’m still getting used to that combination! For most of my life, Spring was in March! (In The Netherlands)
Mindfulness teaches you to be more calm and self aware, which helps in responding better to all that happens daily in your life.
By having a more laidback approach to yourself and others you will feel more happy and your relationships with others around you will improve too!
One of the things to look out for, is how much you are sabotaging yourself, in living by rules and demands, the should and should nots, that we have come to live by.
So this week, be on the look out for all the selftalk that happens in your mind that start with “I should……” or “I should not…..” And than ask yourself, if you really have to? Do you really want to? Or is there a good reason why you should not?? Think about what is good for you, how is it helping you? You are allowed to make your own choices, even if they are different from day to day!
We had a lovely walk along Oriental Parade on Saturday. I’m glad we did, as Sunday it was raining all day!!

Did you know your brain is wired to focus on negative things and to quickly forget about positive things? Because that’s what helping for survival!
However that makes us easily forget all the good things we do.
If you want to feel more postive about yourself, you need to train your brain to focus on the things that are good about you. This might feel a bit uneasy at first, but you will get good at it, really quickly!
So this week, every day, take a moment to pause and think about what was good about you so far today. And when you think about it, also bring back all the sensations about it. The sounds, the smells, what did you see, how did it feel. That is important to really make the change.
Have a great week!
ps I hope the people that planned to plant persil all around the Wellington Station, feel really good about themselves. Because I love it! Did you know??
Hello everybody! It’s Monday all over again! This week I have something different for you for the Weekly Mindfulness Workout .
Mindfulness is also know as kindfulness. Learning to be kind to yourself and tame your critical selftalk. And to be kind towards others, all others. Being kind to others will give you a good feeling about yourself too. That’s probably why you sometimes can even feel a bit uncomfortable when people thank you for your kindness. As if there is no need to be thanked for being kind, as the other has already allowed you to feel good, by being kind to them! 😉
I was happy to help out at one of my favourite organisations on Saturday, and helped packing boxes for the babies. Little Sprouts always puts in a gift for the mums as well, which I love. I’ve taken it up on me to start gathering more gifts for the mums that receive these packs and that is why I ask you, if you have any suitable gifts for a new mum, to get in touch, and I happily collect it from you. This could be some body lotion, a cool scarf, anything you would have liked to get as a gift for yourself. Here’s the link to the Little Sprouts on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LittleSproutsNZ/photos/a.162570553931801.1073741825.162569747265215/224065787782277/?type=3&source=11
On the pictures you can see what a babybox looks like.
Thanks and have a good week!
Everything mum will need for the baby in the first year, nappies, smoke alarm, thermometer, toys, merino sleeping bag, clothes etc etc.
And a bodylotion for mum, with a tag & crochet heart. I made lots of these for the Easter Fundraiser Market.
