Free Weekly Mindfulness Workout

 
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,
M

Hope you had a nice long weekend! We were home, spending some time together, no pressure, no stress.
One of the attitudes of mindfulness is to be non-judgmental.
We are judging all the time and this keeps us safe when we are crossing a road.
However we often judge out of habit, and this can affect how we feel. Judging ourselves negatively, or judging others in a negative way, gives us negative feelings and makes us feel disconnected from others.
So this week, try to be aware of your judging, and if you can, try to change your mind into judging a little less, so you feel a little happier.
Have a great week!

ps: Grateful in April is a global campaign to get people focused on feeling good about what they’ve already got in their lives. It’s amazing what can occur when you find ways to be grateful for what you have. It was started by Melina Schamroth. You can find all about it on the Grateful in April website and Facebook page!

Looking after you!

Hi, I hope you have had an enjoyable weekend! Here is your Weekly Mindfulness Workout:
 
Self compassion, looking after yourself, being kind to yourself in words and actions is so important and yet we often forget. If you don’t care for yourself, who is going do it? How will you be able to keep up all you’re doing, all your jobs and caring for others and racing around etc etc?? You are worth caring for in the best way! And self compassion is also an important part of mindfulness.
 
So this week, pretend you are a little Easter chick, sitting on your shoulder, seeing all you see and do, and hearing all the things you say out loud and in your head, to yourself. Are you being kind to yourself? Are you looking after yourself well? Are you taking breaks when you need to? Are you complimenting yourself when you look in the mirror? Are you speaking nicely to yourself, being your own best friend? Are you guiding yourself through difficult situations or beating yourself up?
 
Have a great week, remember the next 8 week mindfulness starts in May, Mindfulness for Parents starts in June and you can book your children into the Zendoodle workshops in the April holidays.
 
Be happy,
Monique
