Hello readers,

For those who don’t me let me introduce myself, my name is Jackie Canale and I am a holistic therapist working in Gran Alacant promoting holistic wellbeing wherever I can.

Welcome to July’s issue. With summer season now in full swing no better time to talk to you about Mindfulness!

We live in a very fast-moving world; our days can be completely absorbed in our “to do” lists and it can be too easy to forget about the most important part of our day “ourselves”.
Many of my clients already know how passionate I am about teaching them how to live in the present. I for one find it completely necessary to my busy life, it teaches me how to balance myself and most importantly not get stressed.

Automatically some people will say “I don’t have time”. It is essential to “make” the time, even if it means getting up half an hour earlier to find it.

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is living in the present moment. You don’t need to be sitting in the lotus position with your eyes closed in full meditation, it is simple, it is clearing your mind and noticing the present. Stop thinking about what’s for tea at 5pm when it is 11.30am, or how busy you are going to be that day, exhausting your mind before the day has even begun, instead, while out walking, notice the beautiful surroundings around you. At the beach, really feeling the sand under your feet or the water in the sea. While exercising, really feeling that buzz. Take in the surroundings, the chair you sit on, the sky, the flowers. While prepping meals, really concentrate on the food you are about to eat (it mindfully makes it taste better.)

Concentrating on the present moment clears the stress from your mind and helps you to breath more deeply.

During my NLP & Life Coaching studies I done A LOT of mindful work on myself, read an insane number of books enjoying the journey along the way and the destination at the end.

Two of my most favourite books on mindfulness would have to be:

Ruby Wax- Mindfulness for the frazzled (her crazy wit brought tears of laughter to me)
& then my constant peer,
Mel Robbins – The 5 second Rule (this 1 makes your brain stop procrastinating and more in control of you)
Both very different women, yet very good at explaining and simplifying how to practice it in our everyday lives.
I also recently joined a Tai Chi class, what an amazing experience for people who struggle with stress in their lives.
With the season kicking off here the workers work really very hard, no better time to add a little bit of mindfulness to your daily routine. Make it your new thing to do if you don’t already. Get up early, walk the beach at 7am, breath in that beautiful experience. Enjoy putting some love into yourself and your life however fast paced and stressful it may be. Just be.
