Presentation: Create Your Own Calmness

Most of us will have memories of situations when we wished that we could have been more calm and even remembering experiences from the past can stir feelings and emotions which we would rather not have.

This can sometimes effect current experiences or make us feel anxious about future situations.

When we restore calmness, we can interact with people in a much more effective and positive way and situations that may have at times seemed difficult are not as challenging.

Benefits of being calm include:

  • reduction in stress and creating the ability to relax
  • filtering out negativity
  • increased focus and clearer vision
  • develop a calm confidence
  • become more effective and increase productivity
  • communicate effectively
  • learn to let go

Using techniques from EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) you can be equipped with resources to create your own calmness whenever and wherever you need it.

This session will include demonstration and practical use of techniques to help restore calmness in times of anxiety, stress, anger and upset.

No previous experience of EFT or NLP is required as full explanations and demonstrations of techniques will be given.

As we cautiously peep out from the dark and stormy depths of Winter everyone’s desperately looking forward to a healthy dose of Spring sunshine to help raise our spirits and breathe fresh life into old projects, attitudes and life issues.

The pace of life is so hectic as we juggle work, home and family responsibilities but we’re spending less and less time caring for our own well-being until stress explodes like a time bomb and it feels too late to make simple changes to our busy lives.

Spring is in the air so let’s turn our attention to the important things in life. Unwanted stress is reaching epidemic proportions, with terrible impact on people of all ages from tots to teens and beyond. Stress, worry and anxiety gets in the way of our ability to enjoy life’s simple pleasures – a good night’s sleep, enjoying time with family and friends, even getting in the way of our ability to perform at our best in business and at work.

Just thinking straight and facing the day with confidence and optimism can become difficult once we are gripped by anxiety, worries and unhelpful stress. It’s a cost that can have serious consequences to our health and well-being so taking time out to reflect and rebalance is priceless. Life’s to short not to bother,,,,,we all need to know how to manage our own personal response to everyday worries and stress so let’s get to it and take time out to relax and revive in style!

Once again, The Retreat People Chris and Sue would love you to join us at our mini Relaxation Retreat taster session at the end of a wonderful day at Spring Change Camp.

In our Spring Change Camp workshop we will use guided relaxation, mindfulness and meditation techniques and tools to help you retain the energy and positivity of your Change Camp experience and as ever re-energise everyone so that we all return home full of the joys of Spring.

To Enjoy Your Mini Retreat Please Bring:

  • Clothing that you feel comfortable relaxing in.
  • Lightweight cosy blanket or cover – some people like to lie on the floor although chairs will also be available (Teddy Bears and Slippers as ever are optional!)
  • Just bring your desire to relax, chill out and simply enjoy yourself.
