Free Weekly Mindfulness Workout

colouringmentalhealth

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!

FREE workout starts here:
Mindfulness can help to sleep better. I use mindfulness when I give my mind something to focus on, so it doesn’t go wild with worries!!
For me focussing on sounds works best. I start to pay attention to all that I can hear, just listening, not thinking about the sounds and not looking for sounds. This makes me feel relaxed and I sleep in no time!
So this week practice being mindful of sounds. Just bring your full attention to all you can hear, nearby and far away. Let me know if you get sleepy too!!
It helps in giving your brain a break from thinking and analysing and can be energising too.
Have a great week!

Is it schoolholidays in your home? It is in mine!
 
We often stay at home, as the kids seem to be very happy just hanging around.
Even if you are not going to the sun, or the snow or anywhere els these two weeks, that doesn’t mean you can’t take some moments to yourself to chill! And when everybody is at home for 2 weeks, I really need to do this myself!!
 
So this week, make a list of things that you like to do, that are fun, relaxing, or a treat. Doesn’t have to be expensive!
Commit yourself to doing at least one item of the list every day. Even if it is just for 5 or 10 minutes, take that time for yourself.
 
My list so far:
-put my colouring calender back on the dining table, I don’t have to finish a whole colouring page, but I can sit down for 10 minutes and colour.
-sit on my balcony (it’s covered!), have my coffee or tea in peace.
-visit a museum/gallery.
-go for a walk at the beach.
– go for lunch with a friend.
-go for a coffee with a neighbour.
-discover more meditations on my mediation apps.
-browse crochet projects.
-make a zendoodle.
-do my yoga every day.
 
Have a great week!
Aroha nui,

Queen’s Birthday, and drama’s in London. So much happening in the world always. Makes you appreciate your normal day to day life even more.
 
This picture is my go to motivation for life. I found it once in the States and have carried it with my back to England, to the Netherlands and now it’s here in NZ.
It makes me smile, it motivates me to do stuff, and it makes me feel good.
With mindfulness you train your attention when you give it something to focus on. This can be your breathing, or your senses, or a mantra, a word, a sentence.
 
What is your best motivational quote? What has helped you? What words make you feel good? What always pulls you through??
 
Let me know what quotes have helped you, and I will post them out on the page this week!
 
I have a few things coming up, mindfulness for kids, creative mindfulness classes and the 8 week mindfulness based stress reduction starts after the holidays too. Don’t forget to register!!
 
Have a good week,

And another Monday

Good morning!! Here is another FREE Weekly Mindfulness workout!
 
Mindfulness is training yourself to be more aware and focussed in the here and now. This present moment is the only moment you actually really have! Too often we are not in the here and now. Our body is already here, but our mind is wandering.
So here’s an easy and fun way to get you focussed in the present. You can also do this with your children.
Practice this a few times a day. When you are waiting for example, or when you are bored or even annoyed. Or just set your timer on your phone to remind you.
You’re going to ask yourself to:
Spot 5 different colours,
Look for 4 thing that you like,
Notice 3 things that are moving,
Find 2 things you can hear,
Take 1 deep breath.
 
Have a great week!
