Positive Pause – 25th April, 2016 – the Positive Habit

the positive habitThe Positive Habit

Last summer I decided that I wanted to write a book. I felt passionate about reaching as many people as I could to help them make positive changes in their lives. I wanted to share all the incredible insights and experiences that I have learnt from the work I do with my clients. I knew that if I could share the techniques I had created and the approach that works so well with my clients on a one-to-one basis I could help more people.

The book had the working title, “Six pathways to Positivity” and was based on the concept of reading a chapter each week; each chapter represents a positive pathway in your brain.

Nine months later the seeds of that idea have blossomed into what is now “The Positive Habit” Six Pathways to Positivity.  The idea is esssentially the same but the “book” has now become a powerful, self-help, digital programme. It is a six-week, self-help course for people to follow. It is interactive and engaging and designed to empower people to reach their full positive potential.  It is ideal for anyone who wants to improve their lives in any way whether that is to lose weight, to get fit, to perform better at work or to sleep more soundly at night.  It is also very useful for people with anxiety and mild depression.

The programme is based on positive psychology and cutting-edge neuroscience; when you develop the habit of being positive everything else in your life will follow suit.

This week please take some time to have a look at the website: the-positive-habit

If the course is right for you or you believe it would help a friend of family member then please do join the many people who are availing of the early bird offer to pre-register before May 30th. The programme is available from May 30th and has an abundance of material that will help you to reach your full potential.

Positive Pause – 18th April 2016 – The Orchestra of Your Mind

Orchestra of Your MindRecently I spent a lovely evening with my mother and her friend at the National Concert Hall. Orchestra of your Mind

The music was  by Rachmaninoff and featured his piano Concerto No 3 which is notorious for being one of the most difficult pieces of music to play in the world.

I was absolutely enthralled and absorbed not only by the music that I heard but also by the room, the musicians and in particular, the composer. He was a young man who conducted his orchestra with incredible passion, precision and love.

Think of your subconscious mind with its numerous emotions, feelings and thoughts as  an orchestra and then consider for a moment that the conductor represents consciousness.  By bringing conscious awareness to yourself you are, in a sense, conducting your own mind and choosing which parts of you are the best to focus on, which parts create beauty and which parts allow you to reach your optimum health and well-being.

This week make time to listen to Rachmaninoff’s Concerto No.3 and allow yourself to escape into the magic and drama of his music.

Fiona Brennan on A Lust for Life – Epigenetics

Epigenetics - A Lust for Life logoIn addition to the wonders that neuroscience has contributed to illustrate human kind’s ability to choose how we wish to think, feel and behave, there is also a growing body of scientific research into the area of epigenetics.  Epigenetics is the study of genes and the word “epi” comes from Greek, meaning  “above”, so in this case, a force that is above our genes.

This science shows that our genes are NOT pre-determined but are, in fact, formed by external or environmental factors such as diet, stress and our connection to others. Bruce Lipton, a leading celluar biologist and author of ‘The Biology of Belief’, has uncovered incredible evidence to show that our beliefs literally create our reality at a celluar level.  Lipton says that: ”Belief controls biology”.  He also states that simply being told to ‘think positive’ does not work as most of our brain power is actually subconscious.  Read more…

Positive Pause – 11th April, 2016 – What is “Me-Time”?

me-timeThe phrase “me-time” is banded about a lot along in self-care programmes.  I am a big believer in both.

The concept of me-time is very subjective: we all have different ideas of what qualifies as me-time. Essentially though, me-time is time spent doing what you want to do and something that benefits you directly.

Me time for me is simply being on my own, it really doesn’t matter what I am doing.  I could be cleaning my car (although that is highly unlikely), I could be sitting having a coffee and watching the world go by or I could be doing some visualisation/self hypnosis at home. What I really love about me-time is the feeling of being complete and in harmony with myself. This is akin to spending time with someone I love and enjoy being  with. There is no pressure and I can behave in anyway I want and they will understand what I mean.

It is a pleasure to spend time with me and the best thing about it is that my schedule never clashes with myself and I can always make time for me.

The core idea behind me time is that when you make time for yourself you are taking care of yourself and ultimately this makes you a nicer person.  As a result everyone wins!

This week, please take some me-time for yourself.
