Tired of your Mind being Full. Feeling anxious, stressed and overwhelmed?
Join Sam as he goes through a series of simple exercises and mindset shifts to lead him towards a more peaceful and fulfilling life, with better quality sleep, relationships, and peace in his quest to reach his aspiration.
While mindfulness is a lifelong practice you can begin today with this course. There is a new video and exercise for the first 4 days of the week, with day 5 being for catch-up and reflection. Note this is not a course on meditation (we do recommend you start a practice), but rather a series of simple exercises that will increase your level of mindfulness.
While you may not enjoy or gain benefit from each exercise, with 12 different exercises we are confident that you will find significant benefit in taking the course.
Week 1 - Quietening the noise and negative framing - is about reducing the excessive stimulus to enable you to feel less overwhelmed and calmer.
Week 2 - Becoming more present - the exercises will enable you to train yourself to be more present in the moment.
Week 3 - Linking the conscious to the sub-conscious - allows you to be more focused and successful as you harness the connection.
These exercises are easy to repeat and we recommend either taking the whole course again from time to time, or perhaps "dipping" in to your favourites.

Consider the following:
Sanjay was working from home today, so had simply left Sam a note. It read:
“I appreciate how seriously and thoroughly you have done these exercises. I trust they have had an impact on you to help reframe your mind. Growth often sneaks up on us, so it goes unnoticed and unappreciated. Today I want you to reflect back on your previous week and think about what worked well and not so well. Think about what you could improve on and any “AHA” moments you had.”
So Sam grabbed his journal and begin to make some notes, he liked to work in tables, so he put the days in first column and then each day as a heading:

This is one of our favourite exercises. Stop at 3-5 times during the day and hear your inner voice asking “Where am I?” - Then take a moment to recognise where you are and go through your 5 senses. What do you see, smell, hear, taste, feel? - For feel check in with your emotions as well. Set yourself a reminder if need be.
Make a conscious effort to notice when you are getting frustrated and delight in it as an opportunity to practice:
Start your own Private University, consider what works (Books, podcasts, audiobooks) for you and what fits with your schedule, but most importantly prioritise the time.

Some books to kick you off. -

It can be an uncomfortable exercise to do, but will help motivate any changes you want to see you in your life.

Completed in a simple 2 min exercise:
After a period of self discovery & transformation in his early 30s exploring topics from Financial Planning to Meditation, Dave asked himself why he only discovered some of the key critical ideas that lead to a happier, more purposeful, less stressful life.
Why wasn’t this taught earlier? He had given away his time in his 20s cheaply.
So he became an evangelist for personal development and through Udemy has developed a simpler, less intimidating way to get key messages across.
