An example of a workshop which was created and run successfully throughout many regional offices in the U.K.
Learn how to use the power of your mind to ease the symptoms of stress and prevent the build up of tension. Training your mind to focus within brings you mental and physical rejuvenation for optimal functioning. Releasing tension from your body allows the natural relaxation response to counteract stress and benefit your entire physical system including easing the symptoms of many stress related diseases. Learning to calm endless mind chatter allows you to exercise the power of your mind toward creating more peaceful thoughts and subsequently reactions to life’s challenges and demands.
Workshops cover positive psychology, mindfulness and breathing and mind calming exercises from yoga and bring together a variety of simple yet very effective techniques. There is a focus on the scientific perspective of how the body responds to stress, tension and anxiety and tools that can help to calm these states; we can’t always avoid stress, but we can counteract the effects of it.
Elements of the workshops include:
Mind Calm – Basic principles and techniques to calm a busy mind
Intro to fight/flight response and understanding stress
5 basic movements to open and calm the body
Diet, stress and eating for calm – the body/mind link to creating a healthier way of being
Structuring a time/place to build in these new habits
The power of our thoughts – Learn how to become aware of limiting thoughts and how to create a calmer mind that supports wellbeing
Relaxation – Techniques for body, mind and emotions. How to adopt simple techniques throughout the day and to create a daily practice of relaxation at home.
Time for discussion, feedback and help with techniques after each one is practiced, helps create a practice that is enjoyable and maintainable. All participants receive 2 relaxations tracks to listen to at home. This brings great help in starting a new life pattern.
“Nicola’s sessions were very well received by our employees, even those who were initially quite skeptical. Her professional, friendly and encouraging approach worked well for our organisation”
