Guest Speaker on the topic of Mindfulness in Health.
Women In Mind, Women In Kind- the presentation be can be specifically tailored for Women's Health.
Learn THE ART OF SIMPLY BEING by cultivating a practice of mindfulness.
Embark upon the mindfulness journey with Women’s health Physiotherapist, Mandy Hogan.
As your teacher in mindfulness, relaxation techniques and meditative breathing Mandy can facilitate your shift for a calmer and clearer perspective in your life.
The theme of Mandy’s courses and presentations is ‘sharing, caring and believing’ using the topic of mindfulness.
“As women, we tend to take on so much and play many roles to many people. We can sometimes be so busy that we operate “on autopilot”, and rush our way through life. Often our vision is narrowed by the blinkers we wear as we power through our days, missing the “extra-ordinary” moments in our everyday lives. Mandy talks about managing stress by stepping back and regularly taking time out for yourself, to restore balance in the nervous systems. ”It takes a shift in perspective to learn to willingly deliver self-compassion and self-care, and not feeling guilty about it. However, when you yourself are nourished, you become free to share your gifts with others.”
Is it time to shift from a Human Doing to a Human Being?
It has become badge of honour to be busy, stressed and unavailable. With misinformed pride we’ve become addicted to productivity. It’s now evident that this is taking a toll on our health, with western societies suffering greatly from the stress epidemic of depression and anxiety.
The purpose of learning mindfulness is to live a longer, healthier and happier life, by minimising the risk that long term stress can have on our physical health and mental well-being.
Mindfulness is about knowing the difference between “the doing mode and the being mode”, and taking time to become aware of your internal and external environments. Mindfulness is also about observation without criticism; being compassionate with yourself. Mandy teaches some simple relaxation and meditation techniques to manage stress and prompts a more mindful attitude in reframing your interpretation of negative thoughts and situations. ”The art of mindfulness is training the mind for “simply being” in the moment. Give yourself permission to nurture your soul, to do the things that replenish your health. Give yourself the regular gift of a week, a day or an hour, with the intent to nourish your well-being. It’s not selfish. It’s wise.”
It’s important for your health as a woman to know there are tools and resources available to help improve your physical and mental wellbeing.
