FEAR is INTELLIGENT!

Would you prefer to watch the video tips rather than reading them? CLICK HERE

Today’s #MindfulnessMonday Tip: No one likes to feel afraid, so when you do listen to your subconscious and act accordingly. Don’t judge… don’t doubt… don’t brush it off. Your fear is your subconscious telling you something and you should listen.   

Mindfulness of fear, what is it?

Emotional Mindfulness is staying in touch with your emotions. Therefore, Mindfulness of Fear is staying in touch with your fear and what triggers your fear. Staying present in the moment-to-moment embodied experience of feeling afraid. It means experiencing the sensation of fear, without judging it or trying to push it away. At the same time, mindfulness of these emotions means you don’t have to justify the feelings. Just feel them and act accordingly.

Today’s Mindfulness Exercise:

Emotional Mindfulness

For the next 24 hours, I want you to be open and accepting of all your emotions. Don’t stifle them, don’t ignore them, and don’t judge! Accept your emotions for what they are, your subconscious talking to you and sending you messages about how you feel about certain situations. Allow yourself to feel… everything… This act of emotional mindfulness will help you better understand yourself and keep you grounded in in who you are.

Mindfulness Journaling:

Throughout the day, as your moving through the emotional mindfulness exercise, I want you to take time to jot down what emotions you’re experiencing. Don’t judge them as right or wrong, don’t try to justify them. Simply write down the emotion and a quick note as to what you believe triggered the emotion. You’ll be able to go back to this journal time and time again to see if there is a pattern to your emotional reactions to situations either at work, at home, or among friends and family.

This exercise and journaling are designed to help you accept your emotions and better understand what events and who might trigger certain emotional spikes.

Mindfulness journaling can be very private. However, I would love to invite you to comment below and share your experiences with the ‘Clean a Room Mindfully’ exercise.

Unplug and Recharge! #MindfulnessMonday

#MindfulnessMonday Tip: Anne Lamott said it best when she said, “Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.”  

Why should we unplug?

Our lives have never been more automated than they are right now. We have instant access to information, which fifteen or twenty years ago would have been unheard of. Yet, with all these advances which are designed to make our lives easier and more efficient, we still spend less time resting then we ever did before. Hence the need to unplug and recharge!

Unplugging doesn’t necessarily mean sleep… it means rest. Rest from the constant overload of technology. It means to take a break, both physically and mentally. Step away from the screens, from 24/7 connection, and allow yourself to find calm, peace, and stillness.

The loss of truly recharging sleep, that so many of us experience, is a huge and sadly common factor in daily unhappiness and increased stress.

Our brains and bodies are resilient, but the more we add to our to do list, the more screen time we allow ourselves, the more stress we add to our daily lives the less rest we get when we actually lay down at night. A lack of restful sleep can lead to not only increased stress, depression, and a feeling over overall fatigue throughout the day – it can lead to severe medical conditions.

I encourage you to see your doctor for advice if you feel that your lack of restful sleep is getting worse or has been chronically poor over a long period of time.

Today’s Mindfulness Exercise:

24 Hour Unplug and Recharge Exercise

This one might be hard for some of you, but the benefits are worth it… I want you to pick a day, 24 hours minimum, where you are going to completely unplug. I recommend a non-work day. Turn off your phone, unplug your computer, television, gaming system, and any other electronic devise that might tempt you.
Spend time outside, reading, playing cards or board games with your friends and family, cooking, whatever activities that make you happy as long as there is no technology involved.

Mindfulness Journaling:

After you’ve completed your 24 Hour Unplug and Recharge Exercise, spend five to ten minutes journaling how the exercise made you feel. Its completely normal to have experiences a little anxiety about not being socially connected. Its even normal to experience the fear of missing out. Record everything you felt, good and bad, that way when you complete the exercise the next time you can see if and how these emotions have changed. The more often you complete the exercise, the easy you will find it gets.

Mindfulness journaling can be very private. However, I would love to invite you to comment below and share your experiences with the ‘Clean a Room Mindfully’ exercise.

Stalking Jack The Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco ~ Book Review

Would you prefer to watch the video, instead of reading the review? CLICK HERE

  • Title: Stalking Jack the Ripper
  • Author: Kerri Maniscalco

RATING OVERVIEW: 4.25 STARS
Writing: ★★★★
Story: ★★★★
Characters: ★★★★
Appearance: ★★★★★

AMAZON DESCRIPTION:

Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord’s daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.

Against her stern father’s wishes and society’s expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle’s laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.

The story’s shocking twists and turns, augmented with real, sinister period photos, will make this #1 New York Times bestselling debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.

MY 2 CENTS / THE CRITICAL POINTS:

I’ve always been fascinated with the minds of serial killers. Not in a creepy way, but in a ‘how could anyone possible do that’ sort of way. My mind tries to understand that which cannot be understood… With that said, I’ve read a number of books about Jack the Ripper and I’ve even played his final victim in the play, The Belles of Whitechapel by Wayne Miller. So, when someone asked me to read and review this book, I jumped at the opportunity.

WRITING (★★★★): Maniscalco’s writing style is detailed and fluid. I love how easily I was swept away to the late 1800’s while Jack the Ripper was roaming the streets. Although, at times, the story seemed to drag, bogged down by unnecessary scenes, it didn’t distract me from the over all story. I loved Maniscalco’s style and am eager to read more.

STORY (★★★★): Audrey Rose, our heroine, is a member of high society expected to attend tea, brunch with the ladies, and accept her place in society as an uneducated woman. However, Audrey Rose doesn’t accept that. She has a passion for knowledge and a curiosity for forensic science. Sneaking behind her father’s back, she studies under the tutelage of her uncle, spending many days elbow deep in the viscera of the latest cadaver.

The author leads us down a few paths, making the reader question who the killer, Jack the Ripper, really is. I’ll admit, I made a couple wrong guesses, but I got it right on my third try about half way through the book. If you pay attention, the clues are there.

CHARACTERS (★★★★): The book has a small cast of primary characters, the two main characters being Audrey Rose and Thomas Cresswell. We’re also introduced to Audrey’s Uncle Jonathan, her brother Nathaniel, her father Lord Edmund Wadsworth, her Aunt Amelia, and her cousin Liza with a few other thrown in throughout the story.

Audrey Rose isn’t your typical 1800’s lady, but I found her to be fun, feisty, and all around relatable. Like many teenagers, she often acts without thinking, she jumps to conclusions, and she puts herself in dangerous positions. She is strong willed and brave. It’s that bravery and courage that I enjoyed the most about her character. The way she didn’t care about blending in… fitting in… she was who she was and she didn’t care what other people thought about her.

Thomas Cresswell, who fancies Audrey Rose from just about the moment he spots her is the devilishly handsome, smooth talking, bad boy. Or at least that’s what he wants you to believe. I loved the way that he and Audrey play off each other. There is chemistry between them from the start, but back in the 1800’s it wasn’t proper to act on emotions so there is also a lot of restraint. That push and pull of emotions is fun to read.

APPEARANCE (★★★★★): The cover is beautiful. We have a clear image of what Audrey Rose looks like, although, I’ll admit she isn’t the girl I was picturing as I read the book. We also get a visual of her world, the dark streets of Victorian-era London. I think the cover artist did a beautiful job.

FAVORITE QUOTES:

“Roses have both petals and thorns, my dark flower. You needn’t believe something weak because it appears delicate. Show the world your bravery.”

“Fear is a hungry beast. The more you feed it, the more it grows.”

“In my spare time I flay open bodies of the deceased. Two of whom were victims of leather Apron. The scent that hung in the room would drop a man to his knees, and I aided my uncle during the postmortems while standing in gelled blood. Whatever you have to show us won’t be too much for my stomach to handle, I assure you.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Kerri Maniscalco grew up in a semi-haunted house outside NYC where her fascination with gothic settings began. In her spare time she reads everything she can get her hands on, cooks all kinds of food with her family and friends, and drinks entirely too much tea while discussing life’s finer points with her cats.

The Power of Napping #MindfulnessMonday 8/26/19

Would you prefer to watch the video tips rather than reading them? CLICK HERE

Today’s #MindfulnessMonday Tip: Feeling exhausted or just not yourself? Take a nap!

The Power of Napping:

  1. Napping can boost your immune system.
  2. Napping can improve both your daytime and your nighttime alertness.
  3. Napping plus a little caffeine boost are a one-two punch against sleepiness.
  4. Napping can help you learn new skills and improve your memory.
  5. Napping can improve your physical stamina.
  6. Napping for as little as 90-minutes is as good as a full night’s sleep for perceptual learning.

Today’s Mindfulness Exercise: ENERGY BOOSTING NAP!

Studies show that taking a 10 to 20-minute nap in the middle of the day can help boost your energy and get you right back in the swing of thigs immediately after you wake up. Need a little memory jogger or are you focusing on a big project with quickly approaching deadlines? A 60-minute nap is a great way to increase focus and an excellent memory booster.

With that in mind, what type of nap do you need today?

I want you to allow yourself a little time, even if its just 10-20 minutes in your car on your lunch break, to close your eyes and take a nap. Napping gives your brain a reboot. When you wake up, you’re refreshed and ready to get back at it. *Note: Make sure you set an alarm on your phone or other devise to ensure you wake up on time.

Mindfulness Journaling:

Today’s mindfulness journal is a two-part journaling exercise.

PART 1 – Prior to your energy boosting nap, write down how you’re feeling. What is your energy level on a scale of 1 to 10? Do you feel like you got enough sleep last night? How many cups of coffee have you had today and do you think you’ll have another?

PART 2 – After your energy boosting nap, write down how you’re feeling. Did you fall asleep quickly? Was it easy to wake up? Do you feel more or less productive after your nap?

Mindfulness journaling can be very private. However, I would love to invite you to comment below and share your experiences with the ‘Clean a Room Mindfully’ exercise.

Today’s Mindfulness Exercise:

If you’re cleaning, CLEAN! Clean a Room Mindfully!

What does it mean to clean a room mindfully? It means to go slow, to appreciate each and every item in the room. As you clean, ask yourself how you feel about each item and what each item means to you. What emotions do you associate with each item as you pick it up, dust it, polish it, etc. Explore feelings of self-appreciation. Appreciate your physical ability to clean: the ability to bend, stretch, lift, and carry. How does the room feel when you’re finished cleaning? How do you feel?

Mindfulness Journaling:

After completing the ‘Clean a Room Mindfully’ activity, describe how both you and the room have changed. How do you feel now that the chore has been completed? How does the newly cleaned room make you feel?

Mindfulness journaling can be very private. However, I would love to invite you to comment below and share your experiences with the ‘Clean a Room Mindfully’ exercise.

Today’s #MindfulnessMonday Tip: We can’t all meditate at work, and that’s ok, but you can still take advantage of the benefits mindfulness has to offer, like stress reduction and increased focus.

5 tips for bringing mindfulness into your WORK life:

  1. Be Consciously Present – being consciously present means that you are aware not only of what is going on around you, but also what’s going on within you. Mindfulness can help you be consciously present in what you’re doing, while you’re doing it, as well as managing your mental and emotional state.
  2. Use Short Mindful Exercises at Work – Finding time for a 30-minute mindfulness exercise such as mediation can be hard a work, if not impossible. Does that mean you can’t be mindful at work? Not at all. Mindfulness exercises can be as short as just one minute, you don’t even need to close your eyes or be sitting down. Be creative about finding time throughout your day to connect with your senses. This process helps to tone down the fight-or-flight response we can feel when stressed, engages your brain, and helps us focus on individual tasks to increase productivity and reduce stress.
  3. Be a Single-Tasker – Multi-tasking is known to increase stress and reduce productivity leaving us feeling more overwhelmed than necessary. Try focusing on just one task at a time and keep a ‘to do’ list, adding items throughout the day instead of moving from one task to another, so that you stay on track.
  4. Use Reminders to Stay Mindful – Until mindfulness becomes a habit in your daily life, it might be helpful to set an alarm on your phone – even a vibrating alarm that doesn’t disturb others while working – to remind you to take time to practice mindfulness. One mindful reminder I really enjoy is the Breathe app on my smart watch. It reminds me once every hour to take a minute and just breathe.
  5. Accept What You Can’t Change – This one isn’t always easy at first. However, acceptance lies at the heart of mindfulness. To be mindful means to accept this present moment as it is. Once you are able to accept your current moment… your current situation… you will be able to move past it and try and deal with the situation. If there has been a mistake at work, accept that it happened… it can’t be changed… Once you can accept the situation you can learn from the mistake and move on. Acceptance leads to change where a lack of acceptance can lead to avoidance and even aggression.

Today’s Mindfulness Exercise:

30 Minute Single-Tasking Exercise

For the next thirty (30) minutes I want you to pick one task – ONLY ONE TASK – and focus solely on that one task. When you find your mind wandering to other things, jot down a quick note so you don’t forget then move back to the original task.

Practicing single-tasking can help increase productivity, improve focus, and reduce stress. You just might find this becomes your new preferred working style.


Mindfulness Journaling:

How did you feel completing your 30 minutes of single-tasking? Did you complete the task? How many times did you find yourself becoming distracted with other tasks?

I’d love for you to complete both the 30-minute single-tasking exercise and the mindfulness journaling reflection once a day for two weeks. Studies show that with consistent practice, your results will improve increasing your productivity and improving your mental focus.

7 Tips for Bringing Mindfulness into Your Life!

Would you prefer to watch the video tips rather than reading them?

Today’s #MindfulnessMonday Tip: Becoming more mindful of how you proceed through your day to day activities is the antidote to feeling like you’re just running in circles. Think of it this way, it is so easy to just go through life on auto-pilot. We procrastinate… fail to get things done on time… don’t get enough sleep or exercise. So, when you become more mindful, it’s about being more present and aware of your behavior in the moment. Mindfulness helps you change the habits, like procrastination, that are no longer serving you.  


7 tips for bringing mindfulness into your life:

  1. Meditation – Taking just 5 minutes a day to sit quietly and focus on your breathing can help you feel more conscious and connected for the rest of the day.
  2. Focus on one thing at a time – Studies show that tasks take 50% longer with 50 % more errors when multi-tasking, so consider focusing on one task at a time, with breaks in between tasks whenever possible.
  3. Slow down – Enjoy the process, no matter what you’re doing. Deliberate and thoughtful attention to daily actions like writing a report at work, drinking your morning coffee, or washing the dinner dishes, can promote healthy focus and keep you from feeling overwhelmed.
  4. Eat mindfully – Eating without the distraction of a television, computer, or smart phone in front of you allows you to truly taste and enjoy what you’re eating. Eating mindfully is good, not only for your body, but for your mind and soul as well.
  5. Keep phone and computer time in check – It is so easy in today’s world to get overwhelmed by all of the technology we have at our fingertips. Information overload is a real thing. You need to set boundaries for screen time, not only for your children but for yourself as well.
  6. Move – It’s important to move throughout the day. Your body needs it! So, whether it’s walking, stretching, or just getting away from your desk for a few minutes to grab a glass of water, be aware of your body’s sensations and move whenever needed.
  7. Spend time in nature – Take a walk through the park, the woods, mountain trails, or my personal favorite – on the beach. Just get outside wherever you can. Getting outdoors is good for your body, mind and spirit and it keeps you in the present moment.

Today’s Mindfulness Exercise:

Mindfulness Nature Walk

If you don’t have the ability to be outside, in nature, that’s ok. You can do this exercise anywhere, but there are added benefits when you walk in nature.

Step 1 – It doesn’t matter where you are, just start walking.

Step 2 – As you walk, pay attention to your breathing. How does the air feel as you pull it into your lungs? How does it feel as it leaves your body? Pay attention to what parts of your body move as you breathe in and out. Spend a few minutes just focusing on the full experience of breathing.

Step 3 – Next, focus on the rest of your body. How do your feet feel with each step? What are your arms doing? Do they hang at your sides or swing back and forth? Notice all of the physical sensations associated with walking.

Step 4 – What do you hear? Next I want you to listen, outside of yourself. What do you hear around you as you walk? It might be the sound of your shoes on the sidewalk, crunching leaves under your feet, the wind in the trees, birds, or even a barking dog. Practice simply being open to all the sounds around you. Don’t search for them, but listen to them when they come.

Step 5 – What do you see? Notice all of the images around you – above, below, in front of, and to the sides of you. Notice the colors and the textures. Don’t search for anything but be aware as new things come into view.

Step 6 – As you complete your walk, I want you to shift your attention from one sensation to the next, taking in every experience in your internal and external environment. But most importantly, breathe… nice slow deep breathes as you allow your body to relax into the natural movement of walking.


Mindfulness Journaling:

After you’ve completed your mindfulness nature walk, I want you to take 5 minutes, in a quiet place, to reflect on how the walk made you feel. With pen and paper – not a computer, tablet, or smart phone – I want you to write down all the sensations you can recall from the walk and how you felt both during the nature walk and how you feel now after its over.

Mindfulness journaling can be very private. However, I would love to invite you to comment below and share your experiences with this short 60-Second Breathing Mediation.
