Strengthen your immunsystem with 20 minutes of daily meditation, Issue # 12

Happy Fall! I love the colors in the Fall but a downside this time of the year, is that many people tend to get sick. I learnt from the Swedish Mindfulness Center that doing at least 20 minutes of daily meditation, is being as effective against the flu or a cold as physical activity. Not only do you strengthen your immunsystem by daily mediation and mindfulness, you also sleep better, feel less stressed and have fewer depression liked symptoms. Also, if you can add physical activity into your daily routine, you are increasing these benefits even further.

If we all know the amazing benefits of mindfulness – why don’t we practice it on a regular basis? Maybe because we think it’s complicated and time consuming? Well, I don’t think it has to be! As a reader of my newsletter, you should have received my list of 10 easy ways of practicing mindfulness on a daily basis. In case you have forgotten or need a reminder, here is the latest version.

An additional way to deepen your experience of mindfulness and learn it for yourself as a coach, is to take part in any of the upcoming Body-Centered Coaching trainings, based on a method founded by Marlena Field. This method combines mindfulness with the body’s own wisdom for deeper and more effective coaching conversations.

In the training you will practice mindfulness and learn by your own experience how to trust your own body and intuition as a resource in the coaching conversation. By learning the nine processes in the method, you will be able to assist your clients to move beyond limits, make solid decisions and trust their inner resources for sustainable change.

Heads up to my Swedish readers – the early bird pricing for the training in Swedish ends in a week on October 24, 2018!

Talking about Sweden, I want to give a big shout out to ICF Stockholm for the warm welcoming when I presented there in the end of the summer. The room was filled with amazing coaches who were eager to learn about the Body-Centered Coaching method for 2,5 h. I am so grateful for these opportunities to share and bring the Body-Centered Coaching method further out in the world! If you would like to see and hear me presenting at your ICF Chapter (or somewhere else) please let me know!
