LIFE-COACHING 6-WEEKS COURSE – SESSION 4
What to do this week?
Read the additional information on the subjects we addressed this week in the mindfulness workbook.
Practice the breath meditation daily, 3 times with guidance and 3 times on your own.
Remember, it’s normal to have thoughts and to get distracted, we gently refocus our attention, again and again.
Practice the 3 minutes of breathing space 3 times a day and whenever you encounter a stressful event and pay attention to the signs indicating that stress takes over.
Determine your top 5 of automatic negative thoughts (see list in the workbook) and catch yourself thinking these thoughts. Use the Byron Katie questions on each belief, to realize it’s just a thought, an automatic neuropathway in your mind.
Question 1: Is it true? ..
Question 2: Can you absolutely know it’s true? …
Question 3: How do you react—what happens—when you believe that thought? …
Question 4: Who would you be without the thought?
Please collect questions and ideas for discussion.
The power of self-talk is undeniable. Try changing your passwords with positive affirmations (such as “IamPeace2020”) and allow for magic to unfold in your life.
Remember that consistent practice is the key to success of this training.
