This week I confirmed the mindfulness for busy parents classes at the Petone Comunity House as well as the Mindful doodle & colouring workshop. Very excited about new locations and working together with the local community centres!
Next schoolterm the 8-week training has been confirmed to start at the Norhtland Memorial centre for a second time. Lower Hutt and Linden still have to be confirmed but I’m optimistic about sorting this out the coming week.
I had a day a the Tawa Community Market and had some interest in flyers for all my classes which is great too.
Working at the moment on Mindfulness for seniors and extending even more in the corporate market, building my Easy Now Empire as my children call it 🙂
August is flying by just like that! And Monday again, so time for another Easy Now Mindfulness Weekly workout!
This week is about acceptance which is a cornerstone of miindfulness. A lot of things happen during the day on which we have no influence at all. And most of us are inclined to change it, to solve it, to hate it and to fight it.
How about this week you’re going to be on the look out for the things that happen that you cannot change. They have happened already and that is just the way it is.
Now instead of giving it lots of thoughts, all you do is tell yourself that is happened, and you might not like it, but can you accept it and live with it? Yes you can! If you have trouble winding down, it might help to give yourself some time to focus on your breathing until your body and mind have calmed down.
Let me know how your week goes!!
This week’s #easynowmindfulnessweeklyworkout is not going to be easy!
Mindfulness is about learning to sit back and to notice what’s going on in your mind. And this week’s challenge is to take a few minutes every day to do just that. Become that fly on the wall in your mind, having a good view of whatever thoughts are popping up. And that’s all!
No going into these thoughts and not pushing them away either.
Have a good week and love to know how the challenge is going for you this week!
There will be an Easy Now Mindful Doodle & Colouring Workshop at the Tawa Community Centre on Saturday September 19, 1-2.30. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
You can bring your kids along too! This will be a fun, mindful and creative session, suitable for everyone. No artistique skills needed at all!
This morning on the radio in my car doing the school drop off:
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Growing Up (Sloane’s Song) feat. Ed Sheeran
I love that song!
Remember Early Bird deal on the Mindful Parent class end Sunday!!
Hope you’re checking in for another weekly #easynowmindfulnessweeklyworkout today!
With all my classes up and running and also being busy promoting/marketing next to having the family with a bunch of teens, cats & dog I still find myself indoors too much!
So this week this is my challenge and I hope you’re joining in:
Take at least half an hour a day to go for a brisk walk. And as you’re walking outside make sure you really notice your feet on the ground, your legs moving you forward and your body changing balance with every step you take. Notice your surroundings with all your senses, feel the wind, smell the breeze and look up at the clouds. Zoom in on the greenery and listen to all the sounds around you.
Have a great week and let me know about your walks!
Not sure if you should join my next Easy Now Mindfulness classes?
Why not try this easy test?
If you answer more than 2 YES, why would you not sign up today and secure your spot in the October classes??
This week all my classes started again. An exciting and busy week which is also why I totally forgot to post the weekly Mindfulnes Workout. But here it is, it’s never too late too start!!
Doing something creative is good for your brain and mental health. It also helps your brain to stay healthy as we’re aging. Some very good reasons to focus on your creativity!
This week try to do something creative everyday. You might want to pick up an old hobby or start doodling in a meeting (which can often help to stay more focused).
It doesn’t matter whether it’s an hour or 5 minutes, you don’t have to produce a masterpiece either, just do it!
I would love to see what you get up to!!
