Getting Back to Positive Day 2

Thanks so much everyone for your suggestions, offers of help and for all the love that’s come and coming my way. I’m touched and thought these messages from others only came with a eulogy.

Some of the things I’ve learnt are:

πŸ’•Spending more time with friends and family

πŸ’•Spending time to think about what I’m doing and do I enjoy it?

πŸ’•Remembering It’s ok not to be perfect

πŸ’•Enjoying a good meal and a drink

Helpful Things for Day 2

1. Food and Drink

A Japanese healthy lunch and green tea

2. Reading

Reading how rejection for authors can lead to a better piece of writing

3. Conversation

Future goals and how to achieve these discussed and clarified for the next 6 months

4. Exercise and Activity

The beauty of incidental exercise Walked from Redfern to Erskineville instead of catching two trains

5. Supplementation

Continued taking Usana Healthpak and Biomega

6. Thoughts

Visualisation with self hypnotherapy

Getting Back to Positive Day 1

There are times in our lives where everything is going along smoothly and then smack in the stomach we feel that the peace and happiness is taken from us.

The people who know me, know for sure that I am a positive, enthusiastic person who is usually the one who is cheering up others. But on that odd occasion that feels like the carpet is taken from underneath us how do I cope? Where do I come up with any positive feelings?

The past two weeks have been the hardest I’ve faced and what did I do? Please don’t ask me why and I’m sure when this feels like a feint dream I’ll be able to tell you more.

The aim of this is to see after 2 weeks of doom and gloom what am I doing, eating, reading, thinking and listening to , to take away some pain and get back to “normal”. I hope this can help others and by documenting what I’m doing this could help others find peace and come back to wellness.

10 things I did at the start of feeling sad:

1. Cried a lot

2. Listened to the Heart Sutra and Om Mani Padme Hum

3. Started taking a bigger dose ( 4 per day ) Omega 3 Usana Biomega

4. Taught others how to do yoga

5. Passionfruit

6. Earl Grey tea

7. More candles around the house

8. Reading a funny book “Living Danishly” and yoga magazines

9. Moisturised and massaged my skin

10. Went for a very short swim in the pool and spa/ sauna afterwards

On Day 1 I have achieved the following that I know are getting me closer to wellness

1. Emotions – Don’t cry when asked “how are you”

2. Supplements – Taken 4 Biomega plus Healthpack 2 Times per day

3. Exercise – Swim 250m and walk 40 minutes (2 times to train)

4. Spirituality – bed time meditation and chanting

5. Food – more water and fruits chocolate

6. Mood – candles in bedroom and classical music

7. Focus on Family – talking and listening

I’ll be back again tomorrow with Day 2. If you have any experiences or thoughts you’d like to share to help please reach out! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Stormy Sunday Surf

Today I was so rugged up going for a walk along the beach. Apart from 3 lonely fisherman, the surf rescue and a windsurfer I had the whole beach to myself. The surf can help to crash any problems and bring the mind back to peace.

10 Minute Magic

Making relaxation a part of your day is the secret to meditating regularly. There is no need to “go out of your way” to meditate. Just follow these 5 easy steps to get started

1. Find a place and sit where you are alone (preferably not public transport) because even if you have headphones just remember there are people around you with their own energies coming at you. Choose a place in nature or somewhere you can sit alone and not be interrupted.

2. Close your eyes and breathe slowly

Upon closing your eyes make it your purpose to relax and as you breathe out feel the fresh breath on your face. Breathe in the clean clear air and breathe out what doesn’t serve you. Do this for a few minutes even to calm yourself any time day or night.

3. Listen to Stimulating Sounds

When I’m at the beach I’ll listen to the waves crashing or by the river I’ll hear the water on the pebbles. If you’re in a forest listen to the leaves moving in the wind or birds chirping-and if you have noise around you listen to wind chimes. Find calming music that you enjoy and breathe in time with the surrounding sounds

4. Using scents to stimulate your relaxation and choose whatever perfumes, candles or fruits and flowers in your space to enhance your meditation. If you’re in your garden and have a particular flower or fruit in bloom then relax with the scents around you.

5. Lie down or sit down and think about the parts of your body then as you think of them, tense and relax them simultaneously. Enjoy the relaxation that comes from using all your senses to visualise, feel, smell and hear your meditation.

Today I walked past the ocean and thought let me take a minute here to enjoy this scenery. All it took was one minute to shift into a happy place and enjoy this morning’s magic. Press play and enjoy the sounds for a minute that will take you away on your journey….
