Mindfulness Tip

How about having a mindful cup of tea or coffee this afternoon? 

Notice the steps you follow to make the drink. Let go of any thoughts whilst drinking it and give your mind a rest by simply noticing the taste, smell, temperature in your mouth and enjoy ☕️

Weekly Mindful Reminder – Quiet the Mind

This weeks mindful reminder is written by Roz x

No matter what we are experiencing in life; whether it be spending time with family and friends or working, as many of you are likely to be doing now, we can often find that our minds are very active and we can feel quite separate from our bodies and from the reality of what’s actually happening.

 We can find ourselves lost in thought and feeling quite tired as the thoughts race through our minds and we attach to them creating tension and agitation for ourselves.

 Spending a few minutes each day practising mindfulness can help to calm the chattering mind, help us to feel calm in our bodies and to gain a better perspective on life. We find that we have more choice throughout our day and we can manage challenges with clarity of thought and a sense of calmness.

 So, perhaps you would like to set an intention to practice each day formally and/or informally in whatever way suits you.

 Remember to use your senses as anchors to bring you into the present moment: taste, smell, touch, hearing, sight and of course see if you can just notice the thoughts, label them and return your attention to the present moment again.

 Warmest wishes,

 Roz

Weekly Mindful Reminder – Love ME Do

Kindness is an essential part of mindfulness. With Valentine’s Day approaching a lot of reminders about love can be seen around us. What, however I don’t think we see enough about is showing love and being kind to ourselves!

Mindfulness helps us to be softer and kinder towards ourselves – we don’t need to be our own worst enemy. You might like to try the Loving Kindness or Three Step Kindfulness practices on our app. Or maybe just simply saying to yourself “It’s OK” when you feel sad / stressed / anxious or uneasy.

Weekly Mindful Reminder – Stay Curious

I have recently been on a fascinating course learning all about Voice Dialogue. It’s about how we all have different selves or personalities, some more dominant and some more ignored or disowned. Voice Dialogue enables you to become aware of and know about these selves and creates more balance in your life.

What struck me from this course was about how important curiosity is. Understanding and awareness of our own selves is very connected with mindfulness.

Less judgment and simply having more curiosity and interest about things leads to a much more contented life in my opinion.
