What is Mindfulness?
A question I love to ask is ….do you know what you are thinking? A simple enough question.
‘’The reality is that thinking is very much the driving force behind our lives, yet so rarely do we think about what we think!!!’’
The Role of Thinking in Your Life
Thinking determines how you feel and what you do; thus shaping your life.
Yet thinking is a pretty random affair for most of us and is usually determined by what we are experiencing in our daily life.
Our thinking is mostly a reaction to our circumstances. As circumstances change so does our thinking.
When life is good we feel good and it easy to think positively, when things get tough our thinking changes and perhaps we do not feel so good…….
Mindfulness meditation is not new and in fact and is many thousands of years old.
‘’Mindfulness Training is a simple method of mental training helping you develop the skill of calmly observing your thoughts.’’
Mindfulness Training provides you with exercises and techniques like observing your breathing and watching thoughts come and go.
This is so beneficial as you come to realise you do not have to react to your thoughts.
YOU CAN CHOOSE WHICH thoughts you wish to entertain and act upon.
So you can feel good more of the time and start thinking more constructive and uplifting thoughts which of course affects all areas of your life from relationships to your career.
As you practice and develop your skill, you no longer have to react to each and every thought that pops into your head.

The Reviews for the Get Fitt Mindfulness Training
The Training provided so much life changing information which was communicated with simplicity and clarity.
Thank you for running such an enjoyable and invaluable talk. I was totally captured from start to finish and could not stop taking notes because I did not want to miss out on anything.
I really enjoyed your ease of delivery which was further enhanced by your confident and laid back presence and your ability to keep the room totally attentive, alert and engaged. This does not often happen in these type of presentations.
I have since started practicing the Techniques and found the practical aspect of the talk very impactful.
The Get Fitt Mindfulness Training helped to confirm, reinforce and give even deeper meaning and empowered my value system. And now I am ready and I can take my life to the next level.
The Get Fitt Mindfulness Training was brilliant, just what I needed.”
Since the training I have been practising the simple techniques a few times daily – and noticed an increase in good things occurring!
I had recently been grappling with some of the issues you raised – In particular how I could override old emotional patterns.
I was so pleased to hear about a way to take control and have been applying the simple techniques since the talk.
The way that you communicated the various solutions via the short exercises was very helpful and easy to follow. I am very interested in empowerment and have read stuff about gaining empowerment but it never quite hit the mark (no pun intended!) in the way that your session did.
The Get Fitt Mindfulness Training was very enjoyable and the discussions which came out of it were very stimulating.I could have spent the whole day just listening to you and doing more short exercises.
I really loved the technique sessions and your explanation of the processes.
I know that you said you thought you spoke for too long. But I liked the fact that you spent a lot of time giving background information before the short exercises because it put the exercises into context.
Also the background information answered many questions that I had/gaps in my general understanding.
