An Easeful Mind promotes restful sleep, helps us to play well and allows us to work purposefully. All contribute towards Well Being.

An Example of Client A’s struggle with sleep and rest: Client A has a healthy and fit body, is financially stable, has a clear direction and is living on purpose. They have strong communities of family members and friends’ involvements. Typically, they said, “There is nothing to worry about, but then I wake up early worrying about this, that and the other, none of it is worth losing sleep over. But I can’t stop and I am exhausted!”

After a discovery session, it became clear to my client that they were troubled by a conflict with their spouse that happened some weeks ago. With the busy holiday commitments quieting down, their mind was prompting them to resolve their relationship conflicts.

What interrupts a sense of ease or joy is different for everyone at different stages of life. One skill that really helps identify and to move past these times is mindfulness. When we become familiar with mindfulness as a resource, which I believe is a key building block, and when practiced regularly, it will grow like any skill.

Here is an example of some of my favorite techniques:

1. Set aside one to five minutes in the morning or at night

2. Turning inward, choose one of the following:

· Focus on your breathing as it is

· Scan your body from toes to head

· Observe your thoughts

· Focusing on your present experience

3. Record your findings
