Mindfulness diary 22

Mindfulness diary 22   Although I love my work, sometimes there are challenges.  It could be a heavy day, a less than enthusiastic patient, or one of my least favourite treatments.  What I have found since practising Mindfulness is that the instances of my feeling reticent about such times have lessened.  When I feel acceptance [...]

Mindfulness diary 21

Mindfulness diary 21   I love waking up early and getting up to make use of every minute of the day.   I was up at 5 this morning.  I made a lovely hot drink.  That warm liquid wakes up my mouth so wonderfully in the morning.  Then I made my lunch for the next [...]

Mindfulness diary 20

Mindfulness diary 20   Well I am excited to say that there is definitely a nip in the air this week. Snuggly clothes, Snuggly food.  Snuggly evenings.  Autumn is beautiful.  When it was lovely and warm I would get clients saying 'oh it's too hot for me". These same people are now coming in and saying ' [...]

mindfulness diary 19

mindfulness diary 19   I can't believe I am nearly at the end of week three of my Mindfulness diary.  As with most things, it started off extremely well, aided by some gorgeous sunshine.  I meditated outside every day, ate only what I was supposed and went to bed when I promised to.   By [...]

Mindfulness diary 18

Mindfulness diary 18   It was sad to hear of Robin Williams death today.  We think we know these people, these celebrities.  We see their lives and some of us envy their fame and fortune.  We see their glamorous lives, their glamorous partners and think they have it all. But it just goes to show [...]

Mindfulness diary 17

Mindfulness diary 17   Well yesterday in a wet and windy London, the kids and I did our bike ride.  We got soaked to the skin and beyond but it wasn't a problem. We had a great time. You can't enjoy the sunshine without a little rain. And what a sense of achievement when we [...]

Mindfulness diary 16

Mindfulness diary 16   Just to add to yesterday's post about choices.  I know some of you may read it and say it's all very well when you only have your self to please but we don't have that luxury.  'I have to go to work or sort the kids out.' So it's about how you [...]

Mindfulness diary 15

Mindfulness diary 15   It struck me today just how many choices we could make each and every day.  This came about as it is supposedly my day off.  However I chose to accept bookings in the afternoon and evening.  As I wasn't starting work until 1.30 I could have a proper hot lunch.  I [...]

Mindfulness diary 14

Mindfulness diary 14   Mondays are my most manic day as you know.  So I devise little games and rules to make it easier.  And by doing so Mondays have become much more enjoyable.  I used to make Mondays the first day of a new pilates lesson but as I teach six classes on Mondays [...]

Mindfulness Diary 13   For fear of repeating myself - wow what a gorgeous day.  Tom and I were out on our bikes at 7.30 am as this time next week we will be doing our 100 mile charity ride in London.  At the beginning of the year I decided to get over my fear [...]
