Let’s dance

Choosing to live a healthy lifestyle isn’t always easy, nor is looking inwards at the habits that keep us stuck. Acceptance is a powerful, yet often overlooked, mindful practice, which can help us create change. Ali Roff shares her hack to greater acceptance, so that you can let go of unhealthy mindsets and move forward

New series

Hopefully, if you’ve been following our journey towards greater holistic health using mindfulness so far, you’d have started to ease your way into cultivating new awareness around the conversations between your mind and body. By tuning into our bodies, our behaviour can begin to mirror more authentically what the body needs, versus what the mind wants.

Mind over chatter

But often, tuning inwards to the body can also highlight the internal chatter of the mind. We might begin to see our unhealthy habits for what they truly are, be it the reason for our emotional snacking, or the reality that our so-called healthy habits are actually a form of self-inflicted punishment. A lesser-practised but vital element of mindfulness is acceptance which, although not always easy, is a powerful springboard for conscious change, allowing us to let go of old ways of being and liberate ourselves for new, healthy choices. This month, can you begin to actively turn towards the difficult elements of your health journey, by consciously practising acceptance during your mindful moments? Can you work with the idea of accepting current habits, good and bad, without judgement? Can you accept that some of your behaviour may not serve you? And that new habits, although difficult to implement, might improve your health and happiness?
