Just back from another energising and relaxing session of Healthy Body…..Healthy Mind. It was a combination of warming up, limbering up (well maybe a bit more……the lively music encouraged us all to go a bit wild!!)……followed by a group discussion about ways that we could quieten our busy minds especially from stressful thoughts.
Tips for this week:
Write your worries down – decide when you can deal with them and write it in your diary. This gives you permission to let go of them as you have now planned when you will deal with them. It does work – try it!
Practise mindfulness – focus on an object for a few minutes without any other distractions. It’s a great way for training the mind to quieten down.
Become aware of your breathing – spend some time focusing on it. If you feel anxious try placing your hands on your chest or stomach to feel the breath coming in and going out.
Eat slower – enjoy your meals make them last longer.
Drink plenty of water – we all know that is good for us.
Get plenty of fresh air – not only will it make you feel good physically, it will also make you feel brighter mentally.
Have a great week. Anita :)X
