A Positive Daily Routine

I watched  an Andy Puddicombe video today. I was trawling the internet looking for relevant snippets for my Facebook Page when I came across it. The video 'All it takes is 10 mindful minutes' is really informative and entertaining.

It is part of the TED Talks series. I don't know whether you've heard about TED but if not check them out. They disseminate some interesting stuff.  The message of this particular talk is that you all you need to do is take ten minutes out of your day to clear your mind and the end result will be increased well being and good mental health.

I have in the past tried meditation. I attended a Buddhist Centre for several weeks some years ago but I didn't find it easy to do. It was winter and I gave up when the weather worsened. I had started to feel a little bit threatened by it if I'm honest. It sounds silly I know, and now I'm writing it down it sounds even sillier. However, I became fearful of letting go and or being brainwashed. So I gave up. I did continue to flirt with it and I have bought various books and meditation CDs. In fact I used to make my own CDs to give to clients. The irony being I could help clients to relax but have always found it difficult myself. 

Over the years I've done a lot of alternative therapy training including EFT, Hypnotherapy, NLP and Reiki but the easiest thing for me personally is Self Reiki.

However, after watching Puddicombe's video I intend to try the ten minute formula. Let's face it there's nothing to lose and much to gain. Ironically I've been so preoccupied today I haven't had the opportunity but as Scarlett O'Hara said, 'tomorrow is another day'
