An easy way to integrate mindfulness in your daily busy life is to do a little body check every time you walk.
You can do this by first bringing your attention to your breathing, just following the flow of your breath going in and out of your body.
Than bring your attention to your feet, your legs, and work your way up to the top of your head.
This will give your brain a nice break and it’s also good to be mindful of your body, so you notice it when something isn’t right!
 
So park a bit further away, take that doggy for a walk, and get up from your desk and walk over to your collegue instead of txting!!
 
Have a good week!!

Free Weekly Mindfulness Workout

Morena awesome people!
Do you want to do learn some mindfulness and be creative, than let me know as I might start another Tuesday evening class in May!!!
 
For this week I want you to be a bit more mindful of your selftalk. You know what I mean right?!
We tend to be too harsh and too negative on ourselves and although this is totally normal, we do have to correct ourselves to be nicer.
 
Imagine how you would speak to your best friend, your child or cousin, or your pet. You have to become your own best friend, able to pick yourself up, acknowledge what you’re feeling and kindly talk yourself through in a kind and accepting way.
 
Don’t forget you are not what you do, you are born as an amazing miracle and you still are, you have every right to make the best of your life and enjoy to the max!
 
If you struggle with this, don’t forget I train people in mindfulness on zoom, whatsapp and skype too!! Just pm me and I will try to fit you in asap!
 
Have a good week!

Have a look at what we have been doing at our All Good Colouring Class yesterday: https://www.facebook.com/easynowmindfulness/videos/1652257438199137/

Free Weekly Mindfulness Workout

That week went so fast! Hope you had a good one!
 
Tawa All Good Colourers are meeting up again this Sunday, 10-12 at the Tawa Community Centre, you’re welcome to come along too! Bring a friend and have a coffee and a chat and colour away!
 
One of the most important tools we all have to calm down is our breathing, it’s our anchor through the storms. Make it a habit to bring your attention to your breathing whenever you again, notice if you are breathing into your abdomen and if not, make sure you lower your inbreath, drop your anchor an breathe.
 
Even if all is going well, it’s a great way to build your resilience, so when the weather does change, you are ready for it!
 
Have a good week, hope to see you at colouring!!

Morena! Have you signed up for #gratefulinapril yet?
Go to their website and get great tips in your mailbox!!
 
One of the tips last week was about smiles. It’s been one of the workouts here before too, and it’s a great trick to improve your mood instantly!
 
So this week, try to put a smile on your face if you’re not feeling to well. Just moving your face and mouth into a smiling pose, will trick the brain that all is well and you will start to feel more positive. If you find this hard to do, just grab a pen and put it between your teeth horizontally!! Ann Grandchamp has a cool video about this!!
 
If you are smiling easily already, share your smile! Smiling is contagious, so try to smile at others, doesn’t matter if they are strangers, maybe that is exactly what they need! So go and smile!
 
Have a great week!

Learn to crochet for relaxation starts 6 June, 7-9 pm Tawa Wellington.

Kia ora!
Last week before the long Easter weekend!!
Hope this means that you get some time for you!
By now you will know that I’m a big fan of Creative Mindfulness.
Mindfulness is meditation too, but often this
can be really hard, especially for busy people!! 
Being creative can be a great alternative.
Making something, gives your busy mind something to focus on. That can break the cycle of busy thinking about lots of things that only make you feel more stressed.
So, this week, come up with things that you could be making when you take the t
ime. And go for it!
Even looking for inspiration, can be relaxing!

  ☀     You can make this beginner’s crochet Easter basket here: https://easynowmindfulness.com/hooked-on-crochet/

Have a good week!

>>>>>Workout starts here:
Did you know that one of the attitudes of mindfulness is curiosity????
So this week, get curious!
Try to notice things as if you are seeing them for the first time, try not to judge, be open and accepting, and go!
It can help to ask questions and it is a great way to get to know yourself better too.
 
Have a great week,

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,

Being back in the Netherlands I really noticed how the Dutch love to have opinions about everything! And they love to share that too 🙂
 
However, you do not always have to have an opinion about everything!! This is a natural habit of the brain, to be alert and figure it if there is a threat to us anywhere to be aware of!
 
So this week, try to be mindful about your daily doings, and try not to have an opinion. You are safe and free to just take it all in, notice, see, smell, feel, hear life just as it is.
 
Good luck! Let me know how this is goinf for you!!
I find it such a relief and freedom, to not have to have an opinion about everything, to feel free to just enjoy all the beautiful things around me and to just take it all in as it is.

Free Weekly Mindfulness Workout
Kia ora it is Monday again!!
Last week we finished the Creative Mindfulness course with mindful eating. That was fun and interesting!
It has totally put some people of crackers and some cookies lol!
Just a reminder that I have a few hours available for private mindfulness coaching. Just get in touch by pm or email and we can find a time that works for you!
WORKOUT starts here:
This week try to eat a bit more mindful for eating more of the good and less of the bad.
1. Before you start eating, rate our food on a scale from 1 to 10, how yummy do you think this is to eat?
2. Look at your food, smell and observe it.
3. Take a bite and wait a little before you start chewing, just noticing all you can taste in your mouth.
4. Slowly start chewing and only swallow when it is mostly gone anyway.
5. Rate that bite on a scale 1 till 10 again.
6. Repeat step 2 till 5 a few more times and decide when to stop eating.
Remembe you never have to finish your plate, your meal, you are allowed to discard of it anytime!
Have a great week,
aroha nui,
