DAILY MINDFUL GUIDE
Our professional holistic healing team have put together a mindful guided daily routine to help you in this time.
It is important we make sure we still keep to a routine throughout our day. Even if you are single, in a relationship, children or have no children.
SET AN ALARM
We should set our alarms and get up as we would normally do on our normal work day.
It is important to hydrate so we must try to have a glass of water before we start off our morning routine.
Having a mindful shower will really benefit our days going forward.
If we can try to have a shower in peace it is great we use this 10 minutes to really set our mind frame for the day ahead. Going into the day fresh, clear vision, focused, stress free and cleansed.
In the shower we can also benefit from putting some uplifting music on our phone or even relaxation music.
I would recommend sticking to high vibrational music without any violence lyrics or swear words.
As you take your morning shower, allow the water to rinse away your worries, imagine the water just washing it all down the drain.
Shake off any excess worries troubles or negative emotions you may be feeling that morning.
Then have a little sing to up lift your mood.
WHAT TO WEAR?
It is important we get dressed, and try to refrain from staying in our pjs all day. It is very tempting but the more we can stick to a normal routine the healthier, mentally and physically this will be for ourselves and others around us too.
WHAT TO EAT IN THE MORNING?
It is essentiel we make sure we are having a healthy normal sized breakfast and sticking to the usual time frame we would be getting up and having this in.
WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR A MINDFUL SHOWER?
If you can’t get a peaceful shower in your morning routine then i recommend finding a settled place to take 10 minutes of mindfulness. You can do this alone or with the family as a group.
You can even pop out into your car for ten minutes if this is where you need to go for you ten minute mindfulness time.
I have attached a great 5 minute guided meditation link at the bottom of the page that you can listen to on youtube. If you have never done this before now is a great time to start.
WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF THE DAY?
We need to get a time schedule put together. We must make sure we give ourselevs time to do jobs around the house, reading time, working with the children time and also time for set meals.
Being at home can get boring and can also tempt us to eat more food, watch more TV , play more video games etc, but if we can create a daily structure then this will be easier to manage for ourselves and the people we live with.
WHAT ABOUT WORKING OUT?
I do suggest to get some kind of work out in our daily routine even if we never used to do this before. I recommend 15-20 minutes a day minimum.
If you have space to get out in the garden, go for a run, go for a family walk outdoors this will increase your serotonin levels and also will enable you to get some vitamin D and of course fresh air!
If you have children exercise is very important as they have set play time at school and it is very helpful to keep them in a healthy routine mentally and physically.
WHAT ABOUT ACTIVITIES FOR THE CHILDREN?
I also recommend having a set time for family activity time at some point in the day, maybe after dinner time before it is time for bed. This could be reading, playing a game, drawing. I invite you to try to refrain from more tv or video games at this time. It is important you interact with each other in a time like this to keep stimulation going and positive energy going.
WHAT ABOUT IF I LIVE ALONE?
If you are alone use this time to FaceTime a friend or family member, draw, read, write, sing cook,dance, try something new or do whatever it is you like to do in your spare time.
Once we settle into our evening we can continue with our normal evening routine as before. We may feel extra tired when we start a new routine but we must try try to stick to the usual set bed time.
HOW WILL A DAILY STRUCTURE BENEFIT ME AND THE PEOPLE I LIVE WITH?
Having a daily structure will benefit us very much, it will also keep us productive and our immune systems much higher and much healthier than if we were to not have any type of daily routine.
