The quieter you become the more you can hear

In our busy lives rushing between all the ‘jobs’ we need to get done every day, we get caught up in needing to be somewhere or do something and forget to actually live our lives!

For me, this is something I struggle with each and every day as I am a woman of many hats – I am a mother to four active children, I am a Kinesiologist, I am a wife and (just recently) I am the Tuckshop Lady at my children’s school. Which means that my life is a busy one with lots going on.

This makes it very easy for me to get stuck into the never ending cycle of what needs to be done and in constant thought about the next job to do! And for a long time I would be this person, struggling everyday to get everything done and feeling absolutely exhausted at the end of each day. Unfortunately my children and husband would often bare the brunt of my tiredness and frustrations.

I decided that I did not want to be that mother and wife who is cranky with no time to connect with her children.

I have found the one thing that has made a huge difference for me is meditation and mindfulness of the present moment. It is through this awareness of what is going on and allowing myself time out to re-focus on what is important which has enabled me to be calmer and ‘in the moment’ with my family.

My one most important tip to you today is to take some time out today (it only needs to be a few minutes) to breathe and just allow yourself to sit in the moment. Focus on your breathe and allow your mind to quieten down. Do this a few times each day. I will do this while I am waiting for my kids to come out of school, before I get out of bed in the morning, whilst I am eating my lunch, short breaks at the computer and most importantly before I go to sleep at night. Give it a try in your life today, it is something so simple which can have a profound effect on your day and mood.

I am very passionate about this as I know (through my own experience) that you can also get control of your busy life through using the same techniques I use daily. Hence I have created a workshop called ‘Meditation Made Easy’. Please click here for more information.

Until my next blog, enjoy your children.

Meditation Made Easy

I am always surprised when my clients tell me that they have never meditated as they simply don’t know how. I am surprised because I use meditation every day to calm, centre and energise me.

Hence I have created a 1.5 hour workshop called ‘Meditation Made Easy’, to show you just how easy meditation is for yourself and your children.

Meditation will empower you to move from feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed into a space of peace and calm in your daily ‘busy’ life.

This 1.5 hour intimate workshop will teach you the essentials of meditation, to quieten and calm your mind, body and life.

On the night you will receive…
– Guided meditation.
– Gratitude diary.
– Tips and tools to use meditation in your daily busy life.

I would love to show you how easy meditation is, so please join me by booking your ticket today.

To your happiness,

The Art of Mindfulness

Becoming mindful is the key to living a happy, calmer and more fulfilled life. Yet in our busy day to day lives we forget to be mindful of the present moment as we get caught up in the next thing we need to get done!

I will be running a workshop called ‘The Art of Mindfulness’ on Thursday and at this workshop I will be teaching you the powerful tips and tools I use on a daily basis to keep myself grounded within the present moment. It is in this present moment that I create the future I desire, live the life I love, move away from any past negativity and teach my children to do the same!

Love Your Brain!

With 4 school aged children in both primary and high school, I am very passionate about how to support children’s brains in learning. hence I have developed a program called ‘Love Your Brain’.

Our brains are just like any other muscle in our body, it needs to be exercised and looked after to function at its optimum level.

What can I do to help support my children’s brain in learning???

  • Water and lots of it! Check out my previous blog on the importance of water.
  • Make sure they are eating food high in protein (at every meal), check out my previous blog here on protein.
  • Encourage them to do brain exercises, check out my previous blog on some simple brain exercises.
  • Allow for relaxation time, time for the brain to unwind and relax. I love talking my kids through a gentle meditation before they go off to sleep.
  • Ensure they are getting enough sleep. Sleep is when the brain repairs itself, develops and allows it to relax a be ready for another day at school.
  • Have fun with my kids. As much as learning and discipline is important it is just as important that our brains have fun, to allow for our feel good endorphins to be released within our bodies.
  • Keep out additives, colourings, flavourings and preservatives from their diets. These are artificial products and can cause the brain to go either hyper, confused or anxious.
  • Lots of love and guidance. Some of the basic needs of our children are to feel safe and loved, if they do not feel this then their brains will not function as calmly and effectively as possible.

It does seem like a lot of things to do for our children’s brain, yet it really is not and I am sure you are already doing a few of these points.

It is about seeing your child’s brain as a focus and nurturing it through these different points.

Based on these points I will be running a webinar called ‘Love Your Brain’. It is a 1 hour webinar containing lots of information about how you can help improve the function of your child’s brain. These webinars are very informative and a must for all parents and teachers. To register for this ‘must see’ webinar please click here.

Until my next blog, enjoy your children and don’t forget to Love their Brains!

Align with your 2015 Dreams

Have you created your vision board for 2015?

 

Often when we create a vision board, it also stirs many underlying emotions of doubt, fear and anxieties to achieving what we desire. These feelings are expected as we are setting a vision of something that we want to achieve to extend ourselves in ways we did not think were possible.

 

For me a big one on my vision board is to do big event speaking engagements. This is something I have always dreamed of doing, yet the thought of doing it absouluetly scares me! It brings up all those feelings of not been good enough! Yet in order to achieve this vision, I need to do more than just place a picture of it on my vision board, I need to work through my doubts and fears to allow me to grow and reach my vision.This is something I have found with my clients, that it is often a fear or doubt that holds them back from succeeding at a goal. By understanding what these fears are, we are then able to chip away at them to eliminate them once and for all in our lives.

My popular workshop called ‘Align with your 2015 Dreams’ is back again this year, to register please click here.

It includes:

Access to Kinesiology muscle testing to pinpoint your exact area of focus for 2015 aligned with your body, mind and spirit. We will also be able to determine any stresses that may prevent you from reaching your 2015 vision.

You will also receive…
– Personalised changeable vision board

– Gratitude diary

– Guided meditation on the night

– Establish any fears, doubts or behaviours that will prevent you from reaching your vision.

– Tips and tools to implement at home to put your 2015 vision into action.

Places are limited so please click here to book your seat today.

 

To your happiness,
