Learn to say NO to a lot of things

“…focusing on everything means focusing on nothing. It’s almost impossible to accomplish anything significant when you’re racing through an endless litany of tasks and emergencies. And yet this is how many of us spend our days, weeks, months, years – sometimes, our entire lives.”
(Michael Hyatt, Free to Focus, 2019)

I’ve talked about this information overload many times over the years. It’s a sign of the times. It is so important to be able to narrow down what you want to accomplish and then spend time just working on those specific tasks related to what you really want.

To do that, you have to constantly say NO to a lot of things that bombard you along the way. Your smart phone tends to be the biggest distraction. If your head is too much in control of your day, saying no will be very hard. But if you have a regular mindfulness practice, it makes it much easier to train yourself to switch off the distracting thoughts and the corresponding external information overload.

Having a deep connection to your internal world and internal space is very precious. The more body mindfulness work you do to inhabit/embody yourself, the more you will guard it, the more you will say No to things. The more focused you become on tasks and information that really matter to your goals.

Looking back, I found that the more connected I became to my body and inner self, the better choices I made.

I noticed I began to choose and do what worked rather than what was popular.

This is a very important point to make here. Your mindfulness meditation practice helps you access the real you. It helps you clear the way to accessing your true home, which is throughout your physical body. Then your guidance system becomes your own heart and not the ‘convincing’ information your head is brain-washed to need.

You are unique, a magnificent human being. Very precious. And the more you can embody this, the more unique choices you make, more often. Following the herd mentality, is not fulfilling, so that begins to lessen. You live a life that is much more rich and alive. One that actually contributes something special to the world that makes a real difference.

You have that in you.

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 canContinue Reading

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

The ‘Magic’

I’m continually impressed and satisfied (even after over twenty years) with the results that this work creates for people and the one-on-one clients that I see during the week. That old habit of analysing things and trying to work it out in the head, once that is put to bed, the real healing begins toContinue Reading

What’s one of the Best Books ever Written?

‘BE’ and still get everything done!

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
