Mindful Response

60 seconds is all it takes…

It is well accepted that in our society, we are immersed in a fast paced way of life. Much is known about the potential negative consequences of unrelieved stress on both our physical and emotional health. While there may be some opportunity to alleviate your own personal stress triggers to some extent, two more realistic and immediate choices are available to you. One is to modify the manner with which you respond to a stress trigger, and the other is to practice the elicitation of a relation response on a regular basis.

Both of these choices are appealing, because both are attainable, pleasant, and very beneficial.

Get Moving!

Your body and mind will thank you for it

  • Decide on a physical activity that you enjoy and one that is readily available to you.
·    Think about expense, weather, and time management.
  • Write a realistic physical activity goal.
·    For instance, “I will walk 2 days this week for 15 minutes”, or “I will attend a yoga class this Friday”.
  • Consider enlisting an “exercise buddy”.
·    This is certainly not mandatory, but if there is a fun friend out there who is expecting your arrival for a walk or class, there will be an element of accountability that may keep you going. Not to mention the added fun and pleasure you will experience in the sharing.

"Robin Mallery has been working with me for over a year now. During this time, she has introduced me to many different thought and choice options--most importantly she has helped me understand that I am the most important choice. Her passion for living right and feeling even better brings a human support to a process that could easily have been uncomfortable and unsuccessful. She is tireless in her unending support. Her talent for listening heightens a nurturing coaching relationship. I recommend Robin for those that have chosen to change; she will help support that decision, and you will be pleased that you chose to change and that you chose Robin as your coach."
