Mindful Habits

Welcome to a 10 week deep dive journey adopting small incremental steps towards syncing your daily rhythms and rituals with ancient wisdom for modern health and wellbeing.

Ayurveda is based on living in sync.  When you synchronize your bodily rhythms to nature’s clock, your physiology harmonizes.  You experience balance, ease and flow.  When you live against nature’s body clock, you experience stress, rapid ageing, and dis-ease’           Cate Stillman 2016

As your coach I help you to get clear on your intentions for living a life that is rich in purpose and vitality.  This 10 week habit change program is designed to nourish you and shape shift your identity to support your relationship with yourself and others.  You will be guided through self-care practices and rituals to help you align your daily habits in integrity with your role as a care giver.  Whether you are  caring for others personally or professionally,  or lifes circumstances are demanding a critical focus on self healing, you are in the right spot!    Each week the program focuses on one habit enriched with the science of Ayurveda and behaviour change.  Change will be made easy through breaking down actions into small incremental steps whilst connecting with the laws of nature, human evolution, peer support and accessing personal wisdom.

Gain momentum with small steps towards nurturing yourself first so your tribe can experience the compound effect of your authentic care, support and compassion.  Grounding yourself in this journey will enable you to strengthen your roots and grow a support system to allow all aspects of yourself and others to flourish.

I recently completed the mindful habits program.  In 2008 I was confronted with a life threatening illness and in 2017 I was cured however life presented me with new challenges on how to maintain good health and enjoy life at a time when I was menopausal, having children leave home and transitioning into a different stage in my life.  I lacked a little self esteem, motivation in my life and needed some  simple advice.  Anna from Mindful habits simply changed my thinking and turned old habits into new and exciting habits that made me feel a better person both emotionally and physically.  The ideas Anna showed me were sometimes challenging to implement however over a short time it became easier and I could feel the difference. I  had more energy, I slept better and I enjoyed the beautiful new recipes  that were on offer.  Life throws us many challenges and sometimes it is worth seeking advice to help you become a happier and healthier person.  I recommend the mindful Habits program because by simply talking to a life coach has changed my life for the better.
