When beginning anything new, even meditation, clarify what you want to achieve and take the first baby step forward. A 30 Day Progress Challenge is ALWAYS a GOOD WAY TO PROVIDE SUFFICIENT TIME TO EXPERIENCE RESULTS. Journal your Results – it will help to keep you motivated and on track. Create a reward for each week’s progress. Meditation is actually a High Performance Habit. Brendon Burchard, Best selling author describes Meditation as one of the methods that makes extraordinary people become that way. He uses the word ‘release’ over and over as a mental anchor. It is extremely important to make creating a new Performance Habit compelling and rewarding!
I teach Mindfulness skills, Meditation, Deep Relaxation Therapy and Self Hypnosis to UNLOCK THE MIND & BODY’S UNIQUE POTENTIAL. These are not simply stress and anxiety-relief skills, YOU CAN unlock areas of your brain that improve creativity, clear thinking, epiphany moments and even bliss. As the brain rewires itself to include this new activity, the benefits become more measurable. Health benefits include regulating hormones, lower blood pressure, improved digestion, less fatigue. Sympathetic nervous system activity positively alters over time the quality of your sleep, mood and cognitive capability.
Blocks to utilising these incredible skills can include lack of purpose, not valuing yourself enough, not clarifying a BIG enough reason, having a negative ‘excuse, blame or all/nothing mindset’, failed past attempts, believing there isn’t enough time, not feeling disciplined, motivated or simply don’t know HOW TO GET STARTED.
Have you heard of the 5 second rule? Don’t wait for the perfect conditions… Just get started! Soften your gaze and begin to focus on one thing such as your breath, a phrase, a word or a breathing exercise. I have created easy ways to fit in tiny meditations throughout my day. I personally prefer active mindfulness meditations and I can teach you how to slip these into a busy, balanced lifestyle with just a little practice.
At first it helps to limit yourself to no more than one or two 5-15 minutes each day. Set your phone timer or choose a guided meditation. By restricting the time you do it, it will make you want to do it for longer. You want to make it your special treat or reward for a small achievement perhaps (like getting out of bed within 5 seconds of waking) or doing your morning yoga, stretching or plank challenge – a blissful ‘you time’ of tranquility and inner peace.
Science has proven that even a few minutes practice each day re-trains your hormones out of the ‘exhausting’ stress response. The cumulative benefits of mindfulness and meditation are now being used for peak performance throughout the world.
Remember, your body is either in a state of ‘stress’ or ‘rest and digest’ – never both!
