We're all constantly battling the fight to get fitter, to be healthier, to be more successful or to look better, the list goes on and on. But where does it end, and when and how to do we get to a place where we feel comfortable with ourselves and satisfied?
Thats where Mindfulness comes into play, learning to be ok with yourself as you are, learning to identify your triggers for stress and anxiety, and most importantly arming yourself with the tools you need to manage your stress levels and live a happy, successful life free of anxiety.
So we asked the lovely Brenda Shankey, Mindfulness Expert Extraordinaire to share her tips on how we can be more Mindful this week
Since discovering the power of Mindfulness, Brenda has been helping other people to discover it for themselves.
We love Brenda's energy and her attitude!
Here are her top tips......
Top 3 Mindfulness Techniques to help alleviate stress and to appreciate your life for what is it.
Sit still, look and listen to your surroundings and what is happening around you. Learn to make yourself aware of the moment daily and no matter what... accept life as it is!
Smile as often as possible. Feel how amazing it makes you feel! It's up to you to make sure you are responsible for feeling as best you can. So smile!
Share with others the moments of love, lessons and laughter you experience daily. Sharing is caring!
Try it out... these three steps may sound simple but they are the launch-pad to living a less stressful life.
My favourite quote from Brenda............
'Live in the day, enjoy and accept the moment and no matter what is happening, accept that it’s all part of your journey!'
Its just like i always tell my friends, 'Ask, and the Universe will provide!' - that may be in jest, but somehow it always works out!
