Mindful Gail Newsletter May 2024










Welcome everyone to this May Newsletter and I guess we are all hoping for the warmth of late Spring to begin to seep into our days and bones. Summer is beckoning, mainly from the side lines, but perhaps it was ever thus, everything always in flow, as the planet adjusts and adapts to the circumstances it finds itself in.


As we hope to exchange wellies for sandals soon, my excitement grows about the various events I will be part of in the coming summer months. Have a look at the posters that are in this newsletter and make sure you book your space now!


 

S.T.O.P


When learning and using mindful skills to navigate our busy life as well as is possible, you can try the mindful intervention of S.T.O.P.




  • Step back when anxious/stressed/similar

  • Take a slow breath in and out

  • Observe your thoughts, feelings and sensations  and soften into them, let them go

  • Proceed into the next moments with this mindful awareness

Mindful Skill For You


I heard something the other day which felt a powerful tool when becoming aware of the loud and scary thoughts of ‘you can’t do that, what if it all goes wrong or fails’. I know how easy it is to become overwhelmed, an inertia that holds us kind of frozen. So ,we can say to ourselves when we hear ‘the what if’ narrative, hear it and then change it to ‘Even if xyz happens, I will be ok, I will have learnt something new/different/more valuable’. See if this is helpful for you.



 

And here are some short mindful meditations from Sona and Vidyamala of Breathworks that you may find helpful.

What I Offer...


 

Get in touch


Mindfulness crept into my life about 12 years ago after I completed a Mindfulness Based Reduction for Stress Course [MBSR], offered by my workplace, a Hospice. The teachings touched a need in me to want to experience life in a calmer and more enjoyable way; to find ways to be present helpfully to the way my life was unfolding rather than engage in battling with the automatic behaviours with repeating conflicting thoughts and emotions, with all the attendant emotional and physical fallouts.
