How do you show up for yourself? Inspire me! Tell us in the comments 👇
We've been talking about rest + how you look after yourself. How do you do that? Sometimes I struggle. As a self-employed entrepreneur, a parent, and a 'Doer', I find it hard to rest.
But being diagnosed with a life changing #chronicillness six years ago meant I had to find a way to rest. In part that fuelled my decision to start meditation practice. Then more recently, I've had another health diagnosis, and even my consultant mentioned last week...
...that I might want to think about paring back what I do everyday. It's tiring managing your health, looking after a child, cooking dinners, washings, working two jobs, keeping up with the school emails (is it dress down, or dress up day!!!?).....etc....etc.....etc!

Alexander's last 3 wishes. A thread.
Alexander had created one of the largest empires in history by the age of 30, stretching from Greece to northwestern #India.

He was undefeated in battle and is widely considered as one of history's most successful military commanders.
Once he was returning home after conquering many kingdoms. On his way back, he fell ill. Physicians tried their best to cure him but couldn't, which resulted in his death at age 32.

Legend says these were Alexander's last 3 wishes. Over 2300 yrs later these are still applicable.

" Zen and the Art of Happiness "

It's a simple book but it makes you think .

Few of my takeaways ( with random 2 min doodles).
What is Zen ?

#Zen is a Japanese word that is derived from the Sanskrit word Dhyana meaning "Meditation" .
Zen is a journey of exploration & a way of living that , in and of itself doesn't belong to any one religion or tradition as such.

Zen doesn't teach. It merely
points, enabling us to wake up & become aware.

Ever noticed how zen stories rarely have predefined morals? 🤓

The zen of doing anything is doing it with a concentration of mind , a calmness & simplicity of mind, that brings the experience of enlightenment and, through that experience , happiness.

It could be something as mundane as sweeping or peeling potatoes !

It's now a part of my routine to regularly watch the sunset whenever I don't have an afternoon shift duty. 1/n
Switch off the Wi-Fi/ turn off your notifications, and just observe and absorb the sound of the birds, the cool breeze and the mesmerizing colours on the canvas of the sky. And you have a wonderful mindfulness session. 2/n
For people who are stuck at homes and feeling anxious, don't underestimate the healing power of nature. That tiny window in your room is calling you. Be there this evening. 😊 3/n

When folks online think women at midcareer are “too much” or “overcompensate”

you are 100% right

=working 3-10x as hard to get 1/2 as far

Tired of experiencing us online?
Try living this way ALL THE TIME
If you don’t recognize it, ask yourself whether your goals and/or identity align with power, privilege, structural inequity

..and in how many domains?

How complex or intersectional is your identity?

Centering on self is the best way to misinterpret the world around you.
If you start by asking yourself questions

you will start to learn to ask others questions, not assume

One version is called “the beginner’s mind” or a child-like curiosity about the world that promotes learning & understanding

Opposite of expert

This is interesting research: For a modern #mindfulness practice, having a community and a teacher might be much more important than previously thought.…
It really supports me in my design decisions of my online #mindfulness program. It's a cohort based program with lots of interaction over 8 weeks.

That gives the space to create community in which each of us can open up and witness the opening in others - an exploration supported by building up the #mindfulness skills in parallel. #Achtsamkeit

होली की शुभकामनाएँ। 🇮🇳
I went to India some years ago to see the Dalai Lama at the Kalachakra Tour of World Peace. I met a local chef and we became pen pals. He has always balanced his work and caring for his parents. His father is blind. 1/4
During covid many people lost their jobs. He was one of them. They do not have the welfare system that Australia has. One night he phoned me in crisis. He had attempted to take his life. We got him to safety. He was able to recover. With permission to share he just sent this: 2/4
“Happy Holi my dear..

If your #phone was more like your toothbrush, your life would be a lot better.

Your toothbrush is the greatest tool of all time: You only use it when you’re supposed to, for as long as you need to, and then, you let it go.
That’s what the best tools do: They put you in control at all times, even when you’re not using them. That’s because all great tools optimize for #mindfulness. They preserve your time, attention, and energy instead of draining them.
A tool must have three properties to achieve this:

1. It only triggers you when you actually benefit from using it.

2. It requires as little of your time as possible once you pick it up.

3. It prompts you to put it back down it as soon as you’re done.

How can we make this world a better place in ~10 mins & help manifest our dreams?

#Mindfulness #mentalhealth #motivation
We are about to share a secret!

Essentially, what is a lifetime of struggle for an average human, is simply a momentary effort for the universal consciousness.
Each one of us is like a cell in the Universal Body. On our own, our existence is infinitely small. On a collective scale though, every individual is critical to the existence of the universe.

IKIGAI : A reason for BEING .

I have structured the essential bits & pieces of the book in a flow for easy understanding + compiled some handwritten notes.

As always these are just MY TAKEAWAYS from the book :))
#BookRecommendation Image
Firstly what is #IKIGAI ?


It's a convergence of 4 things .
*What you love
*What you are good at
*What you can get paid for
*What the world needs .

We need to find our Ikigai in life!
(Pic from the net) Image
Let's begin with DAILY HEALTH HABITS.


Both our MIND & BODY must be exercised well to avoid deterioration in latter years of life .

Have a mental workout routinely by stepping out of your COMFORT ZONE.
Expose yourself to CHANGE.

I used to think Meditation was mainly a stress reduction technique; I was wrong.

Here's why I meditate:

👇 A short thread on meditation. 🧵
It's true. Stress reduction IS a positive side-effect of mediation, just like it is a positive side-effect of physical exercise.

However, the real benefit of meditation is so much greater than mere stress relief.
Meditation is an exercise to strengthen the mind, just like working out is an exercise to strengthen the body.

And just like working out, a session can be difficult and tiring, and at the same time, be incredibly beneficial for your growth.

What is your secret mantra of being decisive & not procrastinating?

#Mindfulness #MentalHealthAwareness #motivation
"If you want to learn swimming, sooner or later, you will have to jump into the water. There is no other way."

Choose that one important thing you always wanted to do, and then do it today.

#Mindfulness #MentalHealthAwareness #motivation
Do you suffer from indecisiveness? It is a kind of mental shortcoming, a weakness. Those who are afraid of making choices often keep delaying their decisions. In decision making, there is a false belief that the longer you wait, the better it will be.

🗣Wie angekündigt versuche ich jetzt twitter kompatibel das 🧠#Achtsamkeit straining MBCT (mindfulness based cognitive therapy) vorzustellen. Obwohl es aufgrund der Studienlage in die S 3 Leitlinien geschafft hat als Rückfallprophylaxe bei rez #Depressionen, ist es im 1/9
deutschsprach Raum noch nicht so bekannt, anders als in GB. Es gibt auch Kolleg*innen u Nichtkolleg*innen, die bei allem, wo #Achtsamkeit drinsteht, erst einmal die Augenbrauen 👁 hochziehen. Diese (wie auch alle anderen) können gerne jederzeit Fragen stellen, ❓❓📲🖌 2/9
vielleicht kann ich auch d einen oder anderen Vorbehalt ausräumen. Kritische Diskurse über 🧘‍♀️#Meditation (früher sprach man nicht v Achtsamkeit) gab es fast in jedem Jahrzehnt, in den 80ern (damals fing ich während d Studiums an zu meditieren) war man (an d Uni)Aussenseiter 3/9

Exercising will power is necessary to attain a goal.

1) What do you think is will power?
2) How to increase it?
3) When does it decrease?

Pls, share your viewpoint based on your experiences (do not copy-paste links if possible).

#mindfulness #motivation #Mentalhealth
Thank you for sharing all of your amazing views. This is certainly one of the most insightful threads so far.

Yes, willpower probably is our ability to continue through to do/not-do an action irrespective of how comfortable we are doing so.

'Success feeds success' as they say. So taking on small acts and completing it on schedule increases our willpower a bit and not meeting them, we promised ourselves to do decreases it. So yes, in a way, it is like a muscle.

Today, we will take a break from the regular mindful moments, activities, and reminders.

Instead, we are going to tweet every hour a few thoughts, hopefully, insightful on their own and when looked at collectively as well.

Let us begin.
A life that’s fulfilling and meaningful is a life worth living; such a life can be called a 'success'.
Everyone wants to feel fulfilled, happy, blissful; they want to feel complete, but it often doesn’t happen for most people. Isn't it?

The RED Talk on The #Business and #Science of #Healthcare is now live! Still time to join us at
The next big issue facing NICE & #healthcare will be our relationship with the European Medicines Agency after Brexit; it will impact our #medicines research, trials. We could see a dramatic reduction in research, access to medicine and disrupt the supply of meds - @steve_mccabe
The British #taxpayer makes a phenomenal contribution to the development of new #drugs - but these can then be prohibitively priced. We need to improve access to new medicines and there is a question around cost, access and funding. @steve_mccabe
