Weekly Mindfulness Workout

Good morning on this Wellington Anniversary Day, here is your Weekly Mindfulness Workout:

Your body and brain are connected, and you can use this information to improve your wellbeing in a very easy way. By moving your body into an upright and “proud” position, you will start to feel more confident and others will perceive you as a confident person too. Also if you focus your attention on your mouth, and slowly move your mouth into a smile, you will start to feel more cheerful. Focussing on your body, will also bring your attention into the here and now, away from any worries about the past or future!
So for this week, take a moment each day, to try this out and practice.

Don’t forget the 8-week course starts soon and is already filling up. Early bird ends Feb 1st too!

Have a good week!

Weekly Mindfulness Workout, what’s your number??

Good morning, this is the first workout this year! I hope you are joining in! Just take these small steps every week to improve your general wellbeing and become more resilient and less stressed. And if you forget a week, that’s ok, you can always start again!

This week I got inspired by Michael Chaskalson. It is so easy and takes only one minute! You only need a timer the first time you practice, this is to find your number.

Set your timer or watch ready to time exactly one minute. Take a few moments to focus your attention on your breathing, becoming aware of breathing in and breathing out. Start your timer while you start counting your breathing. Count one as your breathe in, two as you breathe out, three as you breathe in, four as you breathe out, and so on until the minute has passed. Write down your number. Mine was 25, easy to remember 😉

Now every day I want you take a moment to count your breathing up till your number. Remember that this will only take you ONE minute, and you always have one minute! This wil instantly calm you down and help you to destress and clear your mind. Practice at ordinary moments for the first week, practice when you notice you are stressed, agitated or wound up the next week.

Have a good week!

Happy 2016!

Wishing you all the very best for the New Year! How did you spend New Year’s Eve? We took a stroll along the Wellington Harbour and it was lovely to see the families out there, enjoying the entertainment. You can see it on the picture.

My goals for this year are the same as last year, and probably the same for next year 😉 And most of all, I will continue with my classes, making happiness easy for everyone!
