  • Hi and welcome back to healthtalks. Today I'm here with Melisa.

  • Hello.

  • We're in for a real treat today

  • because Melisa is going to share some wonderful advice on how we can begin to reset our minds.

  • Yes, its super important. The thoughts that we think

  • and the programming that we have accumulated over X amount of years

  • is how we run our lives, how we do things and how we make our choices.

  • So the thoughts that we think, are super important.

  • So one of the things that I like to do and use as a technique

  • to reset my mind and my thoughts is meditation.

  • So what this does is that it brings us back into the present moment,

  • calms the nervous system down and kind of like... wipes the slate clean for the thoughts.

  • Tell me a little bit about meditation because are afraid of it,

  • or they might think its a bit "woo-woo", or just don't think that they have the time to fit it in.

  • So ... hwo can we do it?

  • Well meditation isn't just for the monks in India anymore,

  • it's becoming more and more common.

  • You can do it sitting on the bus, on an aeroplane, in the toilet at the work cubical,

  • Getting spiritual on the toilet as we like to say!

  • Yeah exactly .... or could even take it into the Post Office while you're waiting in line,

  • you can be meditating wherever you want and super easy and ... it's free.

  • Yeah thats one of the biggest bonuses seeing as everything costs mint these days.

  • Exactly.

  • Its good to have one of those freebies in your back pocket.

  • Exactly

  • - So I want to do a little demonstration with you. - Awesome.

  • Meditation is super easy, you don't need any handbooks or CD's or anything like that,

  • I just want you guys to place both of your feet flat on the floor,

  • and make sure your spine is upright so that the energy can flow through all of your shakras.

  • Now place your palms upward like this and gently close your eyes

  • and close your mouth. And I want you to breath in through your nose.

  • and fill your diaphram up like a masssive balloon and hold at the top for two counts.

  • and then slowly let the air out of the balloon.

  • Then we do that again. Breath in through your nose, fill you diaphram,

  • hold at the top ..... and slowly release.

  • Visualize your diaphram filling up like a big balloon one more time.

  • In through your nose ..... hold at the top ..... and slowly release,

  • and now gently open your eyes, how do you feel?

  • Relaxed. Yeah that was really easy.

  • So easy. And pople think its difficult, they need a degree in meditation,

  • or they need to go and get some sort of certification but it really is that simple.

  • Focusing on the breaths, focusing on the air coming in through your nose and out through your nose

  • and just calming your mind.

  • And if you notice that your mind is going BRRRR! at a million miles and hour

  • just concentrate on the breaths.

  • Focus on on feeling the air come in through your nose and feeling it go out.

  • It really is that simple.

  • And we should probably say that thoughts are OK.

  • A lot of people think that when you meditate, you shouldn't have any thoughts in your head.

  • But thoughts are normal. Even the Dalai Lama has thoughts when he meditates.

  • - Exactly. - So what should we do?

  • When thoughts come in just .... acknowledge them?

  • Exactly. So when a thought comes in it's not to label and judge it.

  • "Oh my god I'm thinking" !!

  • And then your ego goes - "Oh you're an idiot and Duh Duh"!

  • Just go "Oh well" .... and you let it go.

  • There's a thought .... and you let it go.

  • There's a thought .... and you let it go.

  • And it gets easier, it's a muscle you have to practice this.

  • And even if it's just for 5 minutes every day,

  • it's like going to the gym and working a new muscle,

  • just doing a little bit each day, you're going to get better at it.

  • And now I can sit and meditate for an hour and a half.

  • So it's pretty special and it's not only going to reset your thoughts,

  • but also calm down your nervous system and bring you back into the present moment,

  • bing you back into your body and the here and now,

  • cause we spend so much time in our heads, in the past, in the future,

  • this is a great way to bring you back in the now.

  • Mmmm. And you said something before about the ego,

  • about how when we are telling ourselves things,

  • it's not just a thought, it's reprograming your mind.

  • - Exactly. - So how how can we begin to reprogram our ego?

  • The ego is so clever. It's so so clever,

  • and it will jump in there .... I like to call my ego my "Mean Girl",

  • and it will jump in there and try andf take over whenevr it can.

  • We've had x amount of years of conditioning and programming,

  • so again, like when you're in meditation, just observe the thoughts that come in,

  • not judging them and labelling them and going " thats a judgement or whatever",

  • just letting it go -

  • like it would just come in .... and out. Like your breath.

  • In ..... and then out. Not even giving it power or acknowledging it,

  • just ..... letting it go. It's so simple yet our ego tries to complicate it.

  • So what else can we do to start to reset our minds and to start reprogramming our thoughts?

  • So another tool that I use is Affirmations and Mantras.

  • Have you ever used these before?

  • Yes I love Affirmations.

  • -Yeah. - A big part of my day.

  • So basically with all of the years we've had programming

  • and we've picked up things along the way,

  • Mantras & Affirmations are a great way to re-set.

  • It's almost like we unconciously wake up in the morning and say

  • "I'm tired, I'm fat, and its not even that we really feel it, or really believe it,

  • it's just programmed into us to think like that.

  • So like going to the gym and doing some meditation, Affirmations & Mantras are another way

  • to work that muscle to re-program.

  • If I'm feeling something in particular, I'll use write out my own.

  • But you've got to find what words resonate with you

  • and then I write it out on a Post-it note and I'll stick it on my mirror and refer to it all day.

  • One that I say all day almost every day is " I love and accept myself unconditionally".

  • Whenever I notice one of those ego-ic thoughts come in

  • I just straight back to the "I love and except myself...",

  • and it's like ..... Ah ! It's nice.

  • You've just got to practice it. At the start everyone's "it doesn't work, it doesn't work"!

  • but you've got to do it every day.

  • And work that muscle.

  • And we should alos say that when you begin,

  • using Affirmations like " I love and approve of myslef",

  • that can sound pretty confronting because we're not used to looking in the mirror

  • and telling ourselves that we love ourselves.

  • We're used to looking in the mirror and saying, "my hair looks horrible or I'm getting wrinkles".

  • So ..... when you say "I love and accept myself", It's different,

  • so you've got to stick with it and eventually it's going to be 2nd nature

  • you're not going to fell weird doing it.

  • You'll be driving along in the car repeating "I love anmd approve of myself" over and over again.

  • -Yeah. -Reprogramming yourself.

  • Exactly ... and that's all you have to do. Just keep working that muscle.

  • You've just got to keep doing it every day, catch yourself,

  • don't be hard on yourself if you're having a week of going really well and then

  • you notice these thoughts come in. Just go "great, another opportunity to practice my Mantras".

  • - Yeah. - It really is that simple.

  • You don't need a degree, or a handbook its just about practicing and working those muscles.

  • So, give it a go.

  • I hope you've enjoyed todays segment and I hope you picked up some good tips

  • to start implementing meditation into your own life.

  • You've seen how easy it is so there's really no excuses.

  • And we'll see you next time.
