Audacious Health Readings..

What gives you peace and joy?

You don't have to meditate to get the benefits of mediation.  Movement and mindful practices will similarly give you these benefits, ie activities / practices such as surfing, gardening, watching sunsets or knitting....

What is your thing?  If it gives you a sense of calm and peace it is a meditative practice that is good for you and done regularly will contribute to good health and mental wellbeing.

Below we've shared a couple activities we've found that are calming, stress reducers and spark joy in us:-

* LISTENING TO MUSIC.  Seems obvious but take time out to enjoy your favourite tunes.  Chill out or dance like nobody is watching.

* COLOURING.  I have at least three adult colour in therapy books full of wonderful madalas.  I find this a relaxing and uncomplicated activity where the mind switches off and like meditation you are in the moment.

* OBSERVING THE WORLD AROUND ME.  When out for a walk, whether simply around the neighbourhood or down at the beach or on a hike in a national park, I find observing the beauty of nature around me good for the soul.  I love checking out the flowers, noticing what the birds are doing, watching the surf roll in...

* BEING MINDFUL, CENTRED AND CALM.  I try to make efforts to be mindful.  I found that the exercise promoted by the 2017 Calm App very good to do at the start of each day (or at times when feeling overwhelmed) - stop and observe 5 things you can SEE, 4 things you can HEAR, 3 things you can FEEL, 2 things you can SMELL, and 1 thing you can TASTE.
