Today I was planning a session I am delivering at Rainbows Children’s Hospice tomorrow morning.
The session is for 80 people and is the start of their day of training. Those attending will do all sorts of different jobs within the organisation, from nurses caring for the children, to receptionists and those in more office based roles.
Although having so many people from different roles coming to the session I knew that I could make it relevant to everyone…
Within all of our lives there are many common activities that we do every day – and if we can begin by introducing Mindfulness to the mundane then applying mindfulness in more challenging situations becomes easier.
So learning to Meditate will be at the heart of my session. By developing a Meditation practise we can teach our brain to focus and concentrate so we can apply our attention as we choose. This can be SO useful when we work in a busy environment, and especially one where emotions run high.
Alongside learning to Meditate some real life examples of being Mindful when going about our daily business will be an important part of the session too. Driving to work Mindfully, enjoying a Mindful break with a cup of tea, eating our lunch Mindfully – they are all changes that could make a huge difference to our state of mind and our levels of calm.
So whatever job you do introducing some Meditation and Mindfulness to your day could make a huge difference. Why not give it a try?
