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,

Healthy Mind, Happy Heart

New Courses for Term 4 2016

For the next school term I will give two new courses that I’m very excited about!

18 October, Tuesday evening starts the Mindfulness Crochet for Calmness course.

Crochet is a great activity that settles your mind and is relaxing too. Crochet and the repetitive movements help the brain make more serotonin, which helps to decrease feelings of depression.

We will learn how to crochet and how to practice mindfulness, we will work on making a crochet mandala.

This is a special project for me, as we will make the mandala that is designed by Dutch crocheter Marinke who passed away because of her depression. I made the mandala (in the profile picture) last year for a project in the USA to raise awareness for depression.

This is a 4 week course and I hope to repeat it every term to enable you to work on more crochet projects.

On Tuesday evening at the Tawa Community Centre, $95, starts 18 October and includes materials and take home crochethook.

 

And after that fun, relaxing and creative course I will run the Mindful Eating course!

Starting 15 November on the Tuesday evenings. Learn to change your relationship with food into a happy one!

Use Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Training (MBEAT) to regain the joy in eating, while empowering yourself to eat more of the good, and less of the bad!

This is a 4 week course, $95, looking forward to see you here!
