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!!

Kia ora! School holidays have started, term 1 went by so fast!
 
Yesterday I went to Te Papa for the new Toi Arts exhibition. There is an amazing art installation called Indra’s bow, made by Tiffany Singh, i’s made of lots of spices, gemstones, and other natural materials, and it smells amazing!
Have you seen it???
 
Practicing mindfulness is easy, you just give your mind something to focus on, that is present in the here and now. You can use your senses for this.
 
So this week, focus on what you can smell. You will quickly notice that your mind will start to figure out what you are smelling, and it will also judge the smells. This is your brain, trying to protect you from any danger!
Try to ignore this, just go outside for a walk and focus on the things you can smell around you.
 
Have a great week!

Hope you are enjoying a long weekend!!
 
This year we’re joining #GRATEFULINAPRIL again!!
So you can guess what this week’s practice will be about 🙂
 
What if your goal wasn’t living the life you love, but it was about loving the life you live?
If you can forget about striving, aiming, reaching etc etc for a few moments, and focus on the good that is here already?
 
Imagine how that can make you feel, and how that feeling can expand into loving the life you have, into feeling more joy and happiness every day?
 
So this week, plan a good moment every day to bring your attention to all that you are grateful for. And even if all you can think is “cats”, that is ok too!!
 
Have a great week and you can read more about #gratefulinapril here: http://www.gratefulinapril.com

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,
nga mihi,

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,
M

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.

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:

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!
