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!

FREE Weekly Mindfulness Workout.
 
I had a fun week, teaching mindfulness at Tawa College to teenagers and at the community centre to a younger age group.
I explained to the teens about how thoughts, feelings and actions relate to each other in every day situations. When I asked them if that was already known information, I was so surprised that this basic understanding of our wellbeing, was missing!
 
So one more time:
Our daily life is a string of situations up on situations. In every situation there will be thoughts popping up in our minds, we feel things in our body, have emotions and we will do something. Or we will avoid doing something.
This determines whether we are on an upwards way, in our spiral of well-being, or on a downward way.
 
By becoming more mindful of ourselves, and how we react in daily situations, we will get more insight in why we feel the way we feel. And that gives us the opportunity to make changes to what we think, what we feel and what we do so we make sure we get on the way up in this spiral.
 
This week take some time, to have a good look at where you are on this spiral. At the bottom, half way up, or are you generally feeling all good, standing at the top of your spiral??
 
Can you think of changes you can make, to keep going upwards? Or to stop from going downwards?
 
Have a great week, remember to register for the 8 week mindfulness that starts next term, (the above is part of this course). This is a great course for teenagers too! And not just for women 🙂
