We hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather and the holidays (for some who are already enjoying them!)
Since many of you have free time to relax, pause, and enjoy more "me-time", I thought it would be great to encourage you to start a practice that will boost your wellbeing! We are talking about Mindfulness!
Due to our hectic world, we don't pause to feel the daily sensations: like, for example, the taste of every single sip of our hot cup of coffee in the morning, the scent of a fresh sea breeze, the sound of the birds.
Mindfulness is being aware of what's going on in our experience, in our present. It is about savouring every single moment in your present and not spending more time than you should, thinking about the past or the future. There is no better moment than now to put our phones and laptops aside and start being conscious of those little things that make life beautiful and savour them:
- The laugh of your child
- The feel of the seawater on your skin
- The sun
- The sea breeze
Get started with Mindfulness this Summer by savouring every little moment and experience!

Differences between Mindfulness and Meditation
Mindfulness and Meditation go hand in hand Mindfulness is the awareness of “some-thing,” while meditation is the awareness of “no-thing.” Sounds easy, but it can be quite challenging!! It's all about practice.
Meditation is one way through which someone can learn to live mindfully. Meditation has proven to be highly effective in helping people be more mindful in their daily experiences.
Get started with Meditation
Once you start putting mindfulness meditation into practice and savouring every little moment, we encourage you to practice Mindfulness meditation, which will help you deal with stress in your day-to-day. Meditating is allowing yourself to focus on the senses instead of the thoughts in your Mind. Sounds easy but it can be quite challenging!! It's all about practice.
Here are some basic steps to get started!
- Find a quiet space where you can focus for 5 to 10 minutes each day.
- Find a comfortable position on a cushion
- Close your eyes and draw your attention inwards
- Clear your mind by focusing on the breath
If you can start by meditating for 5 minutes a day, you'll be off to a great start. You can incorporate this routine into your morning! It is a great way to start the day with clarity of mind. Some people would greatly benefit from Mindfulness in the evenings , as it helps to relieve the stresses of the day.
It is also an excellent routine for your breaks at work: it will help you to focus, combat stress and give you clarity. You will be back from your break in your best form!
Here we share a video where Natalie, a trained Yoga and Meditation teacher at Body Coach TV helps you get started with Meditation, explaining the correct position to take and some tips to clear your Mind. I hope you find it helpful!:
