Stress management

In today’s fast-paced world, stress is an ongoing challenge that can significantly impact our daily lives. Whether it’s due to work pressures, relationship strains, or other demanding circumstances, stress can manifest in various forms, affecting our mental and physical health.

However, there are effective strategies to address and manage stress. One such approach is to cultivate practices that promote relaxation and inner peace. By investing in these techniques, individuals can empower themselves to combat the negative effects of stress and enhance their overall well-being.

Among these practices, meditation emerges as a powerful tool. Through meditation, individuals can quiet their minds, alleviate stress levels, and improve mental clarity. Additionally, decluttering one’s physical environment can contribute to a sense of order and calm amidst life’s chaos, further reducing stress and fostering a peaceful state of mind.

Embracing these practices is crucial for those seeking to alleviate stress and enhance their quality of life. By incorporating meditation and decluttering into their daily routines, individuals can take proactive steps toward achieving greater mental and emotional well-being.

Back pain

As someone who’s struggled with back pain after 3 car accidents 😮, I guess it’s maybe not surprising that I’ve ended up working in the fitness area.

‍‍‍‍

I see other adults struggling with their lower back pain, having visited doctors on numerous occasions and feeling like their back isn’t improving the way they wanted. They then start to worry about their long term health, what will they feel like when they get older, will they be able to manage? And they begin to think that this back pain is what they have to live with forever.

‍‍‍‍

Because relying on medication for managing pain can be so helpful but is it really something people want to rely on for the rest of their lives? And so this is why I chose to work with people with lower back pain.

‍‍‍‍

There’s nothing like working with someone and being told “I haven’t taken my pain killers for my back, my back is feeling so great and it’s all down to you.” 

Of course it’s not all down to me, it’s the individuals that make the change and follow the exercises that bring the results, it’s the job or both of us working together as a team. I feel truly blessed with my students, they are grateful for me and i’m grateful to them!

‍‍‍‍

I love what I do, I love working with people, I love seeing people achieve their goals

I’m now offering PEMF sessions to help with those aches and pains

Black Friday offer

Is back pain getting in the way of your favourite activities? A sport, perhaps? Or just being able to enjoy yourself as a young parent? 

Today, I want to share the good news with you. It is possible to live the life you deserved.  I was able to do it. And my client, Dave, is starting to live his life in his own terms too. Let me tell you his story.

Dave felt like an old man in his early 40s.

Dave is only forty years old but already feels like he’s in his 70’s. He has been enduring pain and discomfort on his lower back and at the back of his legs and knees for as long as he can remember.

In the last 3 years, the pain became more regular – putting Dave in constant episodes of pain. He barely plays golf anymore, a sport he loved doing every other day. He could not even carry around and enjoy playing with his four-year-old kid. 

The final straw? It’s that time when he can no longer function properly at work. Could Pilates be the solution?Countless therapies and massages after, he still struggled with his lower back pain. 

“I have tried countless therapies and sports massages. I even spent around a thousand dollars on Osteopath – but nothing worked!”

Dave finally got motivated to join a Pilates class but kept on postponing because he was scared and intimidated to be the only man in the class. So, he tried to do exercises at home but was not getting the results he wanted.

Dave wants to be free of pain in a year, play with his kid again and continue to play golf – like any man in his early 40s should be able to do with ease. He was on the verge of giving up when we met. And our sessions are starting to turn his life around. 

Just like Dave, I know you have been putting off opportunities, saying no to things you love, and probably been struggling with mundane tasks like bending over to tie your shoes because you’re afraid it will trigger your back pain to act up.

I know that kind of life is HARD. And struggling to find a solution is remarkably HARDER.

But today, I urge you to not give up. Just like Dave, give yourself one more chance to free yourself from back pain. 

I encourage you to to book a class today and I have a special offer for Black Friday. First class for only £5 week commencing 30th October – 5th November 2023.

Affirmation meditation

Affirmation meditation is a mindfulness practice that combines traditional meditation techniques with positive affirmations. Positive affirmations are short, positive statements that you repeat to yourself in order to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging or negative thoughts.

The goal of affirmation meditation is to cultivate a positive mindset and promote self-growth and well-being.

Here are some tips to try out your Affirmation Meditation:

  1. Find a Quiet Space: Choose a quiet and comfortable place where you can sit or lie down without distractions.
  2. Set an Intention: Begin by setting an intention for your meditation session. Decide on a specific aspect of your life that you want to focus on improving or a particular quality you wish to cultivate.
  3. Choose Affirmations: Select positive affirmations that are related to your intention. These affirmations should be in present tense and phrased positively. For example, if your intention is to boost your self-confidence, your affirmation might be, “I am confident and capable.”
  4. Relaxation: Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to relax your body and mind.
  5. Repeat Affirmations: Start repeating your chosen affirmations silently or out loud. Focus on the words and let them resonate with you. You can repeat each affirmation several times.
  6. Stay Present: If your mind starts to wander or negative thoughts arise, gently bring your focus back to the affirmations and your breath.
  7. Practice Regularly: Consistency is key. Aim to practice affirmation meditation daily or as often as you can to reinforce the positive mindset you’re cultivating.

Affirmation meditation can be a powerful tool for shifting your thought patterns, improving self-esteem, reducing stress, and fostering a more optimistic outlook on life. However, it’s important to note that while positive affirmations can be beneficial, they are most effective when supported by genuine effort, action, and self-awareness. Simply repeating affirmations without taking meaningful steps toward your goals may not yield significant results.

Finding Peace

In the hustle and bustle of our lives, it’s all too easy to put off taking care of ourselves. We often find ourselves saying, “I’ll do it later” or “I’ll start tomorrow,” especially when it comes to practices like meditation and prioritising our own well-being. But here’s the thing – tomorrow never truly arrives.

Days turn into weeks, and weeks into months, and before we know it, we realise that we’ve been neglecting ourselves for far too long. We’ve become experts at pushing aside the things that truly matter, like finding moments of peace and tranquility. So, let me ask you again: When was the last time you genuinely carved out time for yourself? When was the last time you allowed yourself to unwind, to let go of the stress and worries that weigh you down, and to focus solely on your mental health?

Imagine waking up in the morning with the intention to prioritise yourself and your well-being. Picture yourself setting aside just five minutes, at the start of your day, to indulge in a rejuvenating Heart Meditation – a brief yet powerful experience that can bring remarkable clarity and calmness to your mind. It’s time to break free from the cycle of procrastination and self-neglect. Embrace the fact that you are worthy of those moments of self-care and peace.

It’s not just about setting aside time; it’s about giving yourself permission to be the best version of yourself. So, let’s make a commitment together, right now, to prioritise YOU.

Let’s make it a habit to honour our mental health, to embrace the tranquility of meditation, and to cherish the moments we truly deserve. The journey to self-discovery and well-being begins with a single step, and we invite you to take that step today. Embrace the beauty of finding peace within yourself, and allow it to radiate into all aspects of your life. Don’t let another day slip away with empty promises to yourself. Take the first step towards a happier, more centered you with this 5-minute Finding Peace meditation
