MENTAL WELLNESS IN THE CORPORATE WORLD -
We were on site with Arc yesterday, and enjoyed many engaging conversations around mental wellness and the importance of meditation
The biggest myth we hear? It’s that everyone thinks that you need to rid your mind of all thoughts and that seems to be impossible ~
We enjoy teaching and discussing this point, and that the aim of meditation is not to magically cause all thoughts to stop, but to refocus the brain and intentionally choose where to place your mental focus, which during some mediations is on the breath or on a visualization
Every time you bring your focus back to the present moment, you are strengthening your brain :

MINDFULNESS INTO THE DAY TO DAY
How will you inject moments of mindfulness into today? There are so many ways to begin and better connect to your own life .
Wake up and start with 5 deep breathes before checking your phone 🌱
Pay true attention to how your hands feel on the steering wheel while driving 🌱
Notice the feel of the group beneath your feet as you walk somewhere 🌱
Stop to notice something that you can hear, smell, and taste at any given moment 🌱
Slowly eat a meal, paying attention to the flavour, consistency, and texture of the meal 🌱
Use eye contact when talking with strangers or friends 🌱
Think about 3 things you are grateful for at the end of the day 🌱

GROUP MEDITATION is a great way to learn the basics of how to meditate. Last night we facilitated a session with a group of 20, which is an ideal size for a private session followed by a Q & A.
One of the most common questions or comments that we hear is “I’m just not good at sitting still or meditation “
We like to break down the process into ideas that are both easy to understand, and to implement daily to bring about the benefits of calm and reduced stress with regular practice. Creating group connection, conversation, and the experience of meditation, whether it be the first time ever, or part of a regular routine for some. .

REST IS IMPORTANT -
A common theme we hear is the importance of rest and how people feel it’s needed, but so few actually give themselves the time to rest while tangled in our culture of constant busyness
Rest can also be misconstrued as to what is effective to actually help your body and brain to recover -
For some, lying on the couch and binging on Netflix may be considered a form of rest, but this is not actually providing your brain with a chance to recoup from the constant stimulation of modern life
Silence and time for the brain and body to simply just be, ideally in nature, but inside is great too, and opportunity to breathe and focus on enhancing ones mindfulness of being in the moment
The brain recharges from silence and true rest, which meditation provides and allows the brain to strengthen and enhance focus after downtime.

MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLNESS -
Today @monkeyogi and @sarahliisawebb delivered a keynote speech on the importance of mindfulness and meditation in workplace stress reduction at Imperial Oil. -
Over the last few months we have noticed an upward trend in the interest and engagement of corporate Calgary to incorporate strategies in the workplace to build stronger, more resilient teams and reduce employee stress.
From keynote speeches, to weekly meditation sessions, to training events, there are many ways that @modernandmindfulyyc can work with your team. .

WELLNESS DAYS -
Today @holisticjason and myself were on site at Mid Sun Junior High for their wellness day, as we led two groups of students through a gratitude exercise, breath work techniques, and a guided meditation. -
The teachers were blown away at how quiet all of the kids were, as this was not the norm on a Friday, or ever! Seeing the youth actively engage themselves in learning new techniques and start to understand the many ways that mindfulness can fit into their lives is incredible rewarding.

DAILY GRATITUDE .
We came across this little reminder on a hike today, and it ties perfectly into our talks on the importance of gratitude with our clients. It is very difficult to be both grateful and angry or anxious at the exact same moment, and choosing to start each day with a moment to pause and reflect on something or someone for which you are grateful can play a role in building a positive mindset.

MEDITATION IN SCHOOLS .
We received a beautiful thank you card today after an engaging school session a few weeks ago. Watching kids suddenly understand what meditation is and connect the dots with how it can benefit them in day to day life is wonderful to be a part of, and one of our favourite parts is teaching kids different breathing techniques. .

We worked with the students at Ted Harrison today for mental health week, and we worked through several breathwork techniques followed by a lively discussions mindfulness and how it can alleviate stress and help one fall asleep easier at night. We finished with this gratitude practice and it was heartwarming to see all of the responses.

MEDITATION FOR STUDENTS
Today we were invited into Crescent Heights High School to teach a class of students about mindfulness and meditation. The students got the hang of mediation extremely well, settling into a guided 30 minute session with @monkeyogi after a discussion about what mindfulness is, and how to incorporate it into day to day life in small, easy to implement ways.

Happy First Day of Spring. Today, take 1, or 2, or 5 minutes to just pause outside, take 10 deep breathes, and centre yourself in the moment.
Think about 1, or 2 things for which you are grateful.
Notice how you feel before and after a brief mindful pause in your day.
