Practice Mindfulness & Meditation
One basic definition of meditation, or mindfulness meditation, is focusing on doing one thing at a time – which brings us to the present moment. Distraction has become our new reality in a world where we are constantly checking and sending email, texts, and our social media updates.
Learning to quiet the mind has undeniable benefits at a time when our attention is on overload and overwhelm from multiple sources all day, every day.
Reality Check…Meditation can be as easy as just focusing on your breath!

Breathe is a new Apple Watch app designed to assist with mindfulness, meditation and stress reduction. The Breathe app guides you through a series of deep breaths, and it will remind you to take time to breathe every day. Choose how long you want to breathe, then let the animation and gentle taps help you focus.
This exercise is a natural tranquilizer for the nervous system. Unlike tranquilizing drugs, which are often effective when you first take them but then lose their power over time, this exercise is subtle when you first try it but gains in power with repetition and practice. Do it at least twice a day. You cannot do it too frequently. Do not do more than four breaths at one time for the first month of practice. Later, if you wish, you can extend it to eight breaths. If you feel a little lightheaded when you first breathe this way, do not be concerned; it will pass.

Creative visualization is the technique of using your imagination to create what you want in your life. There is nothing at all new, strange, or unusual about creative visualization. You are already using it every day — every minute in fact. It is your natural power of imagination, the basic creative energy of the universe, which you use constantly, whether or not you are aware of it.
When we create something, we always create it first in thought-form. A thought or idea always precedes manifestation. – Shakti Gawain
Power of Affirmations
Affirmations simply put, are statements of belief. The statement may be internal or external, positive or negative, personal or environmental. It may affirm and declare your success or your failure. The words you choose, the thoughts you think and the emotions you feel are powerful and create your reality. Affirmations are self-fulfilling prophecies; they come true.
Affirmations are most effective in the FIRST PERSON, PRESENT TENSE.
Keep a Journal
Journaling is a cathartic and powerful practice to incorporate into your life.
Best Tips for Journaling
Ask for Help!
Don’t try to do it all by yourself. Collaboration with like-minded people has so many benefits including accountability, mutual support, creativity, and fun. The journey is so much more fun and enjoyable when you share it with others.
Get Up & Get Out!
At WBNL Coaching, we believe that getting up and getting out is an important part of reaching alignment and connection. In order for you to fire on all cylinders, you need to have an open mind & be refreshed so that you are ready to take on the world.
When you have truly identified what you love to do a magical thing can occur. Work and play can become synonymous. We’ve found that most of the best ideas occur when you allow yourself to get away from your office and computer. Move around, get inspired by nature, take a hike – do whatever leisure time activity you enjoy. Americans are notorious for not taking enough time off. It is a part of the corporate structure that is stifling creativity and productivity. Block out time to get away and take a break. It will recharge you and you’ll find that you are happier, more rested, and more eager to get back to work.
