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 and 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.

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

“George, how do you remain so calm and balanced all the time?”

An executive client (while I was on location at a corporate client site) recently asked me ‘George, how do you remain so calm and balanced all the time?’ He had observed me over a six month period while I was working there with a variety of issues and employee behaviors and stresses that I hadContinue Reading

Consolidation Meditations

In this post I’d like to focus a little on Consolidation Meditations. What is that? Once you learn to release within you, it can get addictive to keep releasing continually. Doing this to much can fragment or destabalise you. So it is good to stop occasionally and do a few meditations for consolidation. That is,Continue Reading

When to Practice Mindfulness Meditation

SPACE

I highly recommend doing some mindfulness meditation everyday. Because I have been doing this process for so long I sometimes forget just how beneficial it is. Earlier this year I went for a short period, without any daily mindfulness meditation. It that period I was very busy and was getting lots done but I beganContinue Reading

Spending quality time for self centering and whole body contact with yourself is crucial in this day and age. Especially with all the distractions, demands on our time and our highly over worked society. There is so much ‘doing’ that the ‘being’ part of us, our more real nature, is squashed or put on holdContinue Reading
