Week One: Being Present
Being present and that “power of now” in an essential tool to calm your energy, feel focused and actually be in your life, not just race through it.
Below are tasks to start working in this week. Click on Downloads to access the videos and resources to help you.
Here are your tasks:
For next 4 weeks practice deep breathing in the morning, lunchtime and bedtime.
The biggest issue we have is not exchanging our O2 and C02 when we breathe. We’re usually in a rush and breathe shallow and the exchanges are also shallow leaving toxins in the body.
For the next 4 weeks develop a daily gratitude practice. Pick a time of day morning or evening to write down what you are grateful for that day.
Start with a minimum of 5 and build this up to 10 gratitudes per day.
Check into the ELC FB group for prompts to see how you are getting on.
Grounding is an energy technique to bring our mind, body and spirit into the same physical moment. It’s very useful when you feel a bit disconnected, rushed, or you have been working with lots of people (online or in person.) You can use these grounding techniques whenever you need to feel more present. Especially if you experience anxiety, because anxiety is about the future or the past, and can’t exist in the present.
Wherever you are in your life pausing for a moment to review offers you a snap shot of where you might need more support or learning for your journey. It offers a sense of awareness that in itself is empowering.
