Addiction Problems!

Hi Folks!

Are you currently struggling with addiction to cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, coffee, gambling etc? Have you thought about why can’t you get rid of these habits? The big question remains is whether we are substituting our empty lives with these addictions. Past trauma can play an important role in causing addictions.

As a Life Coach at SMB HEALTH, I have worked closely with people having addiction problems and so far my realization was that most of these people had gone through some form of abuse & trauma in the past.

As he rightly points out, humans don’t need external material things to be happy. We all need deep-rooted self-love and community support to stay healthy and happy. Practicing some form of spirituality will help us heal our past trauma and wounds relatively quickly. Have a great Thursday!

It’s All In The Mind!

Are you watching your thoughts? Is your mind at peace? A positive mindset brings positive life. We go through so many so called “good” and “bad” experiences, but ultimately we can learn something out of it. Smart people keep creating opportunities even at adverse situations. One best way to learn the art of regulating the thoughts and mind is by spiritual practices such as yoga, meditation, mindfulness etc. Happy Sunday!

Self Care

Hello Everyone!

I know it’s been a while since I wrote something for the blog but I have been busy taking care of my business and personal life. Thanks for the patience!

Last week I had an opportunity to run 3-day seminar on the topic “Self Care when dealing with difficult customers” for Islamic Women’s Association of Queensland (IWAQ). About 60 employees of IWAQ attended the sessions and topics related to Self Care and Stress Management at Workplace were covered. Self Care means taking care of your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual life and striking a good balance. I have received plenty of positive reviews and I am quite excited to do more!

If you are part of an organization that is looking for someone to run seminars & sessions on various aspects of Mindfulness & Self Care please don’t hesitate to touch-base. A big thanks goes to World Wellness Group and IWAQ for providing me this fantastic opportunity!

Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day from SMB Health. One of the essential part of our existence is Love. We all are looking for Love in different ways, things and forms. The “real” love is something that sets you on fire. In Sanskrit language it’s called as “Prema” or Pure Love. It makes you become self-absorbed, hurts you, runs your emotions high, you miss and feel it and you literally go crazy!

Wishing you all to experience that highest, purest form of Love in this life and beyond!

Meditation – Beginners Guide

beginners-meditation-guide

Just leave all your work aside and meditate for 5 minutes every day, you will see the differences happened to your mind and your body.

1. Find a quiet, peaceful space. Establish an area where you can be alone and uninterrupted.

2. Get comfortable. Wear comfy clothing, drink some water, sit on a pillow, and light a candle or some incense.

3. Sit down and dig in. A common meditation posture is seated with your legs crossed, back straight, and hands resting gently on your lap. This is the recommended position as it opens you heart and airways and lets your lower body relax.

4. Close your eyes and begin deepening your breath. Try inhaling for a count of 6, holding for a count of 2, and exhaling for 6. Giving your mind this simple task to focus on will help clear your head.

5. Don’t set expectations! Simply sit down and experience what happens. Do this for just 5 minutes and notice the shift in your thoughts and how you feel.

6. Set a routine. Meditating at the same time each day helps you get comfortable in the practice. Meditating first thing in the morning or right before you go to bed is easiest.

The weather is heating-up at this part of the world so here is a friendly reminder about Skin Cancer! It’s National Skin Cancer Action Week (Nov 20-26). Protect yourself on the “outside” by using sunscreen, hat, sunglasses and seeking shade! If you see any change in skin color and lump on your body, it’s a good practice to go and see the doctor. Early diagnosis is the key.
