    What is Meditative Wellness?

    These sessions are designed to help individuals understand what their signs of stress are, so that they can manage them throughout the day. Managing these states is important, so we aren't increasing our stress and getting to that place of overwhelm. For example: My first sign of stress is clenching my jaw and shallow breathing. By understanding this and checking in with my body throughout the day I am able to stop going to my second stage, which is hunched and tight shoulders. If I don't manage this state, I can get to my third state which is where I start getting short with people and holding onto tasks because the thought of letting them go fills me with overwhelm. This leads to chronic stress. And a team member that is ineffective.

     

    We will also discuss and practice different first aids tools to manage these states, using meditation as a base for a number of these tools. I will also introduce individuals to meditation and the benefits of 10 minutes of meditation most days. For those who don't feel comfortable with meditation, we will discuss what they can do to build balance and resilience in their life.

     

     

     

    I run two types of sessions for businesses:

    1. Meditation and first aid: the group will take part in a 10 minute meditation and we will discuss tools to manage stress throughout the day. The group will also practice some first aid tools.I will also leave some tools for your teams on identifying your signs of stress. We will not cover identifying signs of stress and overwhelm in this in this session. This is aimed more at wellbeing.

    30 minutes (ideal group size <20)

    2. Meditative Wellness: this is a more comprehensive session where the group will start with a meditation. We will then tune into the body and the group will start to understand their stressful states. What signs their body is giving them to let them know when they are stressed or anxious. The final part of the session will be to learn and practice tools to help the group manage stress and overwhelm throughout the day.

     

    By the end of the session the group will see the direct benefits of meditation. They will start to learn their own stress states to be able to check in throughout the day. They will have tools to manage these states and will also start to understand why balance is important for building resilience and what they can do to start building this. I will leave you with tools that you can laminate and put at desks and throughout the office about managing stress states.

    Why work with me?

    In my previous working life I have been a Medical scientist and Head of Learning and Development for a Global company. I have over 17 years experience of training and coaching. I am a coach and run meditation workshops, but I am passionate about the mind-body connection and managing states of stress, overwhelm and anxiety. Having been in those states myself and finally learning to manage them and understand the impact this can have on the bottom line. I run the meditative wellness as a training session, so it has structure and impact. I believe meditation and mindfulness are wonderful tools for managing overwhelm and building resilience, however these are not the only tools. In the session will explore more that just meditation.

     

    I created meditative wellness as it was starting 10 minutes meditation a day that helped me have a clear mind to realise I wasn't living a life I enjoyed. Meditation was wonderful for building balance in my life, but it wasn't helping me manage my stress and I was still exhausted as I had stress hormones running through my body and I felt anxious most days. I realised if I had understood and had tools to manage my stress in the moment, instead of getting to overwhelm, then I may have been less exhausted. This is exactly what happened.

     

    I believe building resilience is the combination of managing stress as it happens, so it doesn't become chronic stress because your body is in fight or flight mode and finding something that you love, that you can do most days so you can breath and focus. For me, that is meditation, for others it may be yoga or gardening or walking in nature. By understanding what is causing the overwhelm, then individuals can explore with their managers a conversation that ensures they are able to manage stress
