Take time to put ‘on’ your body

We take time to put on our clothes each morning. We should also take time to put on our body.

Try not to leave home in the morning without getting into your body first. Body Mindfulness work helps you to do this. Taking a few minutes minimum everyday to actually feel into your body can make a big difference to the quality of your day and mind.

You need to settle into your body like you are putting on your clothes. As you get in, you will feel what parts are comfortable to feel into and what parts are not. What parts need more attention, what parts are numb, what parts are stiff or flexible etc.

You are basically linking your awareness/spirit to your thinking mind and body.

When you don’t do this, you are more likely to have unfinished programs from the day before still running, clouding your mind and stressing your body. Especially the ones that run on automatic pilot because you haven’t paid them enough attention to realise they need switching off.

This is an over stressed way to live each day and it doesn’t have to be that way.

Remember to Remind Yourself

For inner peace, happiness and fulfillment, in work, rest and play – I always recommend meditating a little every day. Especially in the morning. The sooner you can remind yourself of who you really are, the less chance you have during the day of the habitual thinking mind, taking you over and running you. ForContinue Reading

As a child, what did you sacrifice within you, to keep the peace?

A question I’d like to ask you… Q. What tension did you bottle up as a child? As a child living in the environment of your parents and siblings, what did you sacrifice within you, to keep the peace? Whatever that is, if you haven’t done the inner work to clear it, chances are itContinue Reading

Are you living your life your way?

“If you keep your attention in the body as much as possible, you will be anchored in the Now. You wont lose yourself in the external world and you won’t lose yourself in your mind. Thoughts and emotions, fears and desires, may still be there to some extent, but they wont take you over.” (Continue Reading

Focusing on Long-Term quality and growth

It’s nice to be reminded (often) that you are more than just the thoughts in your head and that coming into your body, is one of the most beneficial skills to have in life for health, wellness and success.

Destressing for sustainable long-term success

Reading today in a local paper: “The problem with technology especially email – is that it allows you to feel productive without really achieving anything. Of the tens of thousands of emails I’ve read and sent, there are less than a hundred that were real game-changes.” Scott Page – Barefoot Investor, Herald Sun Newspaper. LearningContinue Reading

If you never truly rest, you can never truly go hard

Forget the Deadline – just for a short period

At the end of last year I was very busy relocating my practice after 16 years in the one spot. It’s been a big change but a better one. It was interesting watching how I handled deadlines with renovations of the new place and the tight closing down deadlines of the old place. Without mindfulnessContinue Reading

5 Minutes

How many times have you, in the past week – stopped and closed your eyes to re center yourself – even for five minutes? Even five minutes is beneficial. Occasionally when I am busy and I haven’t allowed enough time to centre myself during the day, I will close my eyes just for five minutes.Continue Reading
