What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a skill of observing your thoughts without judgement as opposed to becoming embroiled in them. The ability to tune in to the present moment and feel grounded. Human beings have approximately 60,000 thoughts per day, so it’s easy to see how you might become overwhelmed. Meditating, whilst listening to peaceful music is effective, however mindfulness can be integrated into your lifestyle. At work, tune into your body, feeling your feet on the ground, your fingertips typing on the keyboard, the sound of your breathing, relax your shoulders and jaw. Awareness is key.

I can’t switch off. Help!

This message signals stress. Your mind wants to escape and experience a change of scenery. Get your body moving, stretch, or shake it out to relieve pressure. Watch a comedy, socialise – laughter is the best medicine! Alternatively, your imagination is a powerful asset to changing your mood. Lie down and imagine you are on a beautiful beach. What can you see, hear, feel, smell? Take some time out. If you feel overwhelmed, talk to a trusted friend. I often work with clients who are suffering from stress. Even after one session they feel so much better.

What is the money mindset programme?

The money mindset is a programme offered by Diamond Wellbeing, which improves your relationship with money. Everyone has their own set of values, beliefs and experiences related to money, some of which may cause subconscious blockages. For instance, if you believe that money is the root of all evil, it is likely that you are rejecting money in ways you may not realise. By releasing negative emotions and memories related to money, this unique journey transforms hindering beliefs, instilling confidence and clarity. Having a positive, relaxed attitude will help money to flow.
