Meditation and how it can help you

At this time and more than ever, people are searching for a deeper meaning to their life. At the same time, more and more people are becoming sick, anxious, struggling to cope with daily life which, directly affects the quality of their mental health. With that in mind, have you considered the last time you gave yourself permission to stop, step out of the rat race

There will always be times in our lives when we have a lot on our plate and for a few months we can cope, and channel that time into producing something worthwhile. However, continued lengths of time without addressing the balance can have catastrophic consequences to our state of health, especially, our capacity to think clearly and generate great work. That directly affects our relationships, working environment and family unit and our own ability to function.or a while, take a breath, assess or contemplate, on practically anything.

Our emotions are our inner guide, and when paid attention to and understood can bring a wealth of information to our lives so that we know how to take much better care of ourselves.

The Working Mind Meditation- “Lamrin” the tools from Tibeten Buddhist meditation training help us pay attention to the purpose of our feelings and how to take control of them. If we track the root cause to those feelings which frighten us and hold us back we can reduce our anxiety, reduce everyday stress, increase inner happiness and develop our intuition and improve our focus.

Exercise and Stroke

Many individuals who survive  stroke need to re habilitate and regain as much confidence as possible and reclaim as much of themselves as soon as possible. It’s a daunting experience but with stroke people find themselves really worrying how they are going to manage with everyday tasks.

It is also a very traumatic time for the family and wondering how you are all going to manage and cope can be a very worrying time, but help is at hand especially if you feel that you are out of resources. If that’s how you feel and don’t know where to turn, don’t panic you are in the right place. However, we need to gain as much of you back as possible and it takes some work on your part. So what happens in the sessions?

  • We make adjustments to your new physical exercise program enabling you to lose your fear of the consequences of exercising with someone right there by your side.
  • Develop your communication and memory.
  • Learn how to make adjustments to everyday life skills with tools which have worked for other clients. Progressively becoming more confident, self-sufficient and as independent as possible. But  more importantly remain present, not lose your voice and stay visible in the family unit and society.

Hot flushes getting you down?

This was shared with me by a client’s husband this week who was experience chronic sciatic pain which I have managed to get under control.

He said and I quote;

“My wife and I were out shopping, we arrived home pleased with our efforts and shortly after my wife asked if we could turn the heating down”. The heating was not on she was in a raging heat, felt drained, really down and soaked right through to the point she needed a shower and changed her cloths.”

That got me thinking what do I know that may help you get an anchor on your raging heat post festive period. Its so draining to your life force contributing to low mood. Well as a 51-year-old woman and a health practitioner for many years I have learned just how much my own body resonates with eastern philosophy and treatments such as acupuncture and ancient cupping etc. The one ingredient sure to rage your body heat is refined sugar found in sweets, cakes and biscuits and all the wonderful treats at this festive time including the booze.

Here are two tips I want to share with you which I found worked for me.

1. Change from drinking cold water to room temperature water or even mildly warm boiled water. Why, because heat dissipates heat.

2. Time out and sit for a while with your feet in a bowl of hot water- a foot spa ( without scolding your feet ). The water needs to be about 3 inches up from your ankle bone. After about 5 minutes massage the inside of your shins along the meridian lines with a little oil and relax. Listen to a beautiful piece of music to help you unwind and chill.

Try these for a few weeks and see how you feel. They work for me and just might help you.

Calling all menopausal women – How to keep your body heat under control this Christmas.

Menopause management

Reduce your body heat

How to keep your body heat under control this Christmas.

This was shared with me by a client’s husband this week who was experience chronic sciatic pain which I have managed to get under control.

He said and I quote,

“My wife and I were out shopping, we arrived home pleased with our efforts within a short timer my wife asked if we could turn the heating down”. The heating was not on she was in a raging heat, felt drained, emotionally low and soaked right through to the point she needed a shower and changed her cloths.”

He commented how awful it must be to contend with.

That got me Janie, thinking what do I know that may help you get an anchor of raging heat this festive period.

2. Time out and sit for a while with your feet in a bowl of hot water- a foot spa ( without scolding your feet ). The water needs to be about 3 inches up from your ankle bone. After about 5 minutes massage the inside of your shins along the meridian lines with a little oil and relax. Listen to a beautiful piece of music to help you unwind.

When you are ready dry your feet and resume your day.

Try these for a few weeks and see how you feel. They work for me and just might help you.

Mental Toughness

 

I used to love training when I was in international sport. I was fortunate to be able to train with some of the best trainers in the world. The physical training was never an issue for me, training after school and 8 hour days at weekends was great. But when my sport took on a whole new level I needed to up my game. A trainer in the USA took me under her wing and started to train me as they do in the US.

Six weeks I was there and man was I sore.  I was exposed to working with some of the finest artistic athletes, learning to do what they did and how they achieved so much. That’s when I was taught about Mental Preparation Techniques. It is a training area rarely visited and understood in terms of its benefits, not only to sporting performances but to anything you are trying to achieve really.

Mental Toughness

“Once an athlete has mastered all the physical and technical qualities required to be successful on the international circuit, then success becomes 10% physical and 90% mental”

From personal experience I was shown in the USA the value of this technique and once you know how to train your mind to use it correctly.  You will be amazed at what you can accomplish. It is a great tool to focus on when recovering from an injury too so that you don’t become over focused on the injury.

If you are not achieving the results you want from your current training regime, you may need to look at this because having the skills to accomplish a move and then drilled time and time over is one thing, but how can you be sure you will be able to pull that move out of the bag when it counts the most- in the performance arena, on the big day-

We understand from the amount of publicity on the news and in the news papers just how important exercise is for mental health or shall I say ” your mind health” because of the chemicals it gives off in the brain aids in feel good hormones being released through out your body.

Everyone can do something to help themselves feel better mentally, even if that’s as simple as walk by the sea.

“Prolonged stress can have an adverse effect on your health”

We all know that many chronic diseases can be prevented through some simple lifestyle changes and sitting behind a desk all day will not prolong your life.

Apart from the fact that after sitting down and then deciding to go for a run can bring about unwanted injuries caused from sitting for too long to movement without the appropriate attention to warm up and stretching.

Make the shift- move your body -improve your physical and psychological wellness and extend your life.

Personal Wellness training with a holistic and dimensional approach brings out the best in YOU because it is tailored for you!
