hope you are having a nice relaxed weekend. Did you go to Armagaddon? Or the NZ Art Show? Or maybe both?
Here’s another Mindfulness Monday Workout for you!
If you want to live a long, happy and healthy life, one of the things you have to be mindful of, is your stresslevels. You probably know that too much stress is bad for the body and mind, but did you know that not enough stress is also not recommended? You have to find yourself in the right stress frame, we actually need stress to perform best, but not too much! The ideal amount of stress is called eustress. We also need time to recuperate from stress.
So this week, see if you can discover a bit more about your stresslevels during the day. Are you mostly bored, and finding things too easy? Or are you constantly high wired, with not enough time to get back to healthy stresslevels? Or are you doing just fine, having a nice flow of stress for the best performances?
And if you think you have a busy life, see how you compare to our Queen, really interesting. Just enter your age and see what she was up to at when she was your age! Cool right??!! Here’s the link for it: http://www.keepingupwiththequeen.com
According to the keeping-up-with-the-queen website, this is the queen when she was my age. However, thanks to a very attentive reader of my blog, this is not the queen, but her daughter Anne!
Hope you had a lovely long weekend. I had a quiet weekend with my family and enjoyed the nice weather. Here’s the new weekly mindfulness workout for you.
One thing you can do to slow down and be mindful is to stop multitasking. This will help you to really focus on what you are doing and doing it with more awareness can improve the quality too. This can be as easy as having your breakfast without being on your phone, and just focussing on your drinking and eating. It can be walking and taking in the view without planning your day in your head. It can be stroking your pet without ruminating or it can be listening to your partner or child, without keeping your eyes on the television or newspaper. So this week try to remind yourself to do one thing at the time, and doing it with all hour attention.
Now this might sound easy, but it might take some practice. And if you only remember it once a day, that is still more than not doing it at all!
Have a good week!
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.
