Free Weekly Mindfulness Workout

Free Weekly Mindfulness Workout
 
People often ask me how to start with mindfulness.
The easiest way to start mindfulness is to take something you are doing daily anyway, and decide to do that mindfully!
This is not going to take you any time. All you do is bring your attention to the here and now by using your body and senses.
What can you see here, what can you feel here, what can you hear, what can you smell here??
Remember your body is always in the here and now! It’s just our mind that is always wondering off!!
 
So this week, go back to basics and pick something from your day that you are doing anyway, and do it mindfully. Doesn’t have to take long. Just a few minutes to start is fine!
Maybe a moment when you have your morning shower, or the first sips of your morning tea.
Taking the stairs mindfully or why not park a bit further away and enjoy your walk mindfully!
 
Have a great week,

Hello and good morning!
Is it holidays in your home? It is in ours! When I start colouring, and I leave my colouring out on the table most of times, I usually find my kids start colouring too!
It’s relaxing and a great way to spend some time together.
 
For mental health awareness week there is a colouring competition and you can find it here:
#MHAW
 
So this week, get some colouring done, and you know it is not just for children, adults can colour too!
 
Have a great week, show me what you colour!
