Healthy Body……..Healthy Mind

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

About anitamartincouk

After training as a Nurse, Counsellor and a Trainer I discovered another passion – working with groups. Witnessing and being part of someone else’s personal journey is for me one of the most rewarding experiences I can have. Over the last 11 years I have been creating my own ‘brand’ of teaching and delivery and know from the feed-back I receive that the ingredients needed to enable another to grow are really so simple to give. I feel very privileged to have been given the insight from those who have travelled along very challenging paths to know what does and does not support them. Daring to truly listen, without judgement has enabled me to evolve as a trainer and I hope as a person as well. I have been and still am involved with working for an International Emergency Services Organisation, this has included working with the bereaved and also delivering training to airline staff and Police. As a result of this work I am more aware of how different cultures deal with a crisis in their life and appreciate how important it is to accept everyone needs to feel comfortable with how they express their thoughts and feelings. I arrived at a point in my life when I felt the nead to explore spirituality. Hence my love for ‘Intuition’ grew and I started to run ‘Developing Intuition’ courses followed quickly by many other Personal Development courses which I feel just as passionate about running now as I did when I began. I have reached thousands of people through my work as a trainer and counsellor and have run numerous personal development training courses and workshops, both privately and through various organisations, the subjects include Anxiety Management, Confidence Building & Self Esteem, Wellbeing for the Body and Mind and Approaching Change in a Positive Way plus many others. I have also organised and co-ordinated Exhibitions, Retreats and other Social Events. People come from all walks of life including mental health, hospital staff, recovering addicts, young mums, retired and the chronically ill and also individuals who want to experience their own personal journeys. I have recently released my first CD on relaxation and visualisations and also have produced a set of Intuition cards (based on the 28 lessons I learnt in New Zealand) taken from my very recently published book 'Awakening to the Power of Intuition' which includes my solo trip around New Zealand.
