Roxie's mind tips

We found that stress is one of the main reasons why we feel drained and in need of a recharge. Clearing those nagging tasks can often create some headspace.

We asked mind expert, Roxie Nafousi, to share her handy advice to recharging your mind...

1. Start small

Meditating can be really hard and intimidating when you first start. Often, we try it, find ourselves unable to switch off and then think we are ‘bad at meditating’ and get put off trying again. Meditating is a practice which takes commitment, but when you break through you will reap the benefits! Start with just three minutes a day and build up from there. Don’t worry if you struggle to switch off, practice makes perfect, just like everything else.

2. Research

There are so many different types of meditation, so find one that suits you. There are lots of apps out there or guided meditations on YouTube. Try a few until you find one that resonates with you.

3. Be mindful

Meditating is the ability to be entirely present, and mindfulness is the same thing. We can apply mindfulness to every task we do, giving 100% effort and focus. This allows us to feel more fulfilled and enriched in our day-to-day lives for every task we do, from making breakfast to completing a deadline at work, or reading stories to our children before bed.

4. Just Breathe

If you are feeling stressed, anxious or uneasy, then slowing down and watching your breath is an easy way to bring your mind back to the present, whilst also stimulating your parasympathetic nervous system. Inhale for four seconds, hold for two, exhale for four. Repeat.
