- Dial up your breath for wellbeing power.
We take 20,000 breaths a day – Imagine the powerful wellbeing benefits if we could supercharge 3 mins of them each day?
Practicing deep focused and purposeful breathing for even a few mins a day supercharges your mind & body with oxygen on a cellular level. The breath is our best friend for an immediate anti panic focus and soothes your nervous system. It also helps your THINK with more clarity and perhaps more rationally
Start being a master of your breath. Check out 7/11 breathing, it’s an oldie but goody and even athletes train their breath to help calm them and energise or amplify their performance.
UNPLUG – It’s so important to think about safeguarding your Mental Wealth to catch signs early and really NOTICE how you are feeling. One of the ways you can do this is to research the overwhelming compelling evidence for Mindfulness. Be curious and look up your preferred mindful moment.
- Choose fearless. See it and believe it.
Remember that your mind is everything â€˜Change your thoughts, change your world’. Make it a routine to check in with yourself. It could be every Sunday night or every night even.
What would you do â€“ if you knew you couldn’t fail? Write it down; acknowledge it and feel empowered to one-day reach your goal? The only thing that’s holding you back is YOU. Don’t forget the power of visualisation. Picture yourself overcoming your FEAR? What do you look like, how do you stand? Is your body language different, what would you be feeling, pride and power? Visualise yourself 100% more confident. 100% Fearless. This really works. Get Inspired and get involved in YOUR journey, what better gift to yourself to be curious about the ways you can take control of your mind, be your own coach, your way.
I will be sharing more here with Karen in the coming weeks, with the next focus being on sleep.
