Mindful Moments of the Week #25
Here are this week's set of guided mindfulness practices. The focus this week is on stopping and creating calm within your life. I also include a couple of extras too:
Stilling the Mind: Here we look at the busy mind and how we can distract it from distraction by simply focusing our attention on what is happening at this moment in time. A simple exercise!
The Power of the Mind: The mind is a wonderful thing. It helps to build images, assess our environment & essential to dream. However, it also causes us to overthink, overanalyze, and nay become stressed when responding to certain situations. In this exercise, we explore the changing mind and how our thoughts are EXACTLY what we want them to be when we focus our attention accordingly
Our Moving World: Our World is constantly moving, but do we ever pay attention to even the smallest elements of movement? In this exercise, we take a break from the rigors of life and look at the various things around us whose subtle movements can help us to relax and de-stress
Simply Stopping: How often do you just pause what you are doing in the day? Pausing gives us the space to reflect. Reflecting helps us to take the appropriate action rather than simply reacting to whatever it is that we face. In this exercise, we explore what stopping is all about and how you can easily create space between a stimulus and your response
Accentuate the Positive: Esteemed Psychologist Rick Hanson talks a lot about the negativity bias our minds operate around. In this exercise, we explore shifting perspectives from one of negativity to positioning positive experiences in our mind
