NHC # 45 3 effective ways to snap out of procrastination by taking care of your emotional health
When I ask what stops women from taking care of themselves emotionally, physically and spiritually on a consistent basis, I often hear this answer first“I dont have enough time!”The second reason that I hear is the I am too “Lazy” or “I tend to procrastinate”It is this second aspect that I am going to focus on in today's episode.As a way of teaching women how to take better care of their health, I have come to realise that this is a major issue for many women. And for the vast majority of women, it stems from a place of not being very equipped to deal with emotions.You see, when you are trying out something new or moving towards the goals that you have set for yourself or simply desire something, there is often discomfort. And since most of us have never been taught how to deal with this emotional discomfort, we tend to put off doing those things that would allow us to lead a life where we could fulfil our dreams. Infact, there are so many productivity apps available to us today, one would think that procrastination should not be an issue at all for most people. However, this could not be further from the truth.Research shows that a lot of what we tend to call laziness and/procrastination can actually be because of an emotional problem rather than a time management issue.Listen to the full episode to learn more about why procrastination is more of an emotional problem rather than a time management problem.Join our free, private FB group "Healing from within with Anindita" and get regular updates, information and inspiration which will simplify long term health creation.

NHC# 43 Why "extraordinary" mothering is a powerful act of self care
"Extraordinary" mothering is a powerful act of self care... Here's whyWomen are natural caregivers and are usually the primary caregivers in their families. However, often without realising we end up overgiving and run on empty without giving ourselves some respite. We then start feeling resentful of our responsibilities and feel demotivated and stressed. Let me start by asking you a question-“What do you feel deprived of right now in your life?”In what ways are you starving yourself from living a fulfilling and meaningful life?Do you feel deprived of • Good company?• More me time?• More quality sleep?• A creative outlet or a hobby?Only when you are able to pin point this, will you be able to take some action.- courage to face this truth.In this session, I share with you 3 reasons why self care is a courageous and radical act of love for most women2:55 Women's conditioning to be a giver can lead to "overgiving"5:08 Why prioritising your own needs is your responsibility6:03 What do you feel deprived of right now?8:18 We are not taught how to respect and appreciate ourselves8:55 Why many women lose their sense of "self" and "identity"11:06 Why we have to go against conventional norms to be healthy12:39 Why good health is NOT about "diet" and "exercise"15:15 Self care is an act of extraordinary motheringJoin our free, private FB group "Healing from within with Anindita" and get regular updates, information and inspiration which will simplify long term health creation.

NHC #42 How self compassion can increase motivation by helping you embrace your imperfect self

NHC #42 How self compassion can increase motivation by helping you embrace your imperfect self
A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day. A string of such moments can change the course of your life. — CHRISTOPHER K. GERMERI recently did a survey to find out where women needed the most support in terms of emotional self care and one response came up again and again- feeling demotivated. There can be many different reasons why we feel demotivated in terms of emotional, spiritual, or physical origins.But before I go any further I want to dispel one myth that many of us have about motivating ourselves - that by criticizing ourselves and pushing harder we can motivate ourselves when we feel like giving up or when we are lagging behind.Self criticism is not an effective motivator, self compassion is! Our self criticism tends to make us less confident and become afraid of failure. On the other hand, if we are compassionate towards ourselves, we are able to keep moving forward even when we stumble, not because we are any less capable but because we care about ourselves and give ourselves grace.1:08 Why self criticism as a motivation tool is a myth3:16 Your inner critic is not your friend!4:13 I SHOULD....how often do you "should" yourself?6:34 Why we need to redefine "perfection"!8:11 We are beautiful, flawed and "whole" all at the same time9:51 How embracing our imperfect ourselves helps motivate usAccepting imperfection and practicing self compassionOnce you start accepting your “imperfect” self, you are more likely to see yourself as a “whole” human being rather than a sum of all the discrete parts. Mistakes and failures, challenges are an inevitable part of our lives and once we are able to accept this as a fact, we are motivated to take charge of our lives. We are then able to assess what went wrong, focus on a solution and get on with our lives.In other words, we are free to operate from a place of “We are all trying to do the best that we can” and are able to appreciate and celebrate every tiny bit of progress that we make. Also, by learning how to be kind to ourselves we are able to stop criticizing ourselves for our flaws and mistakes and become comfortable with being “good enough”. Join our free, private FB group "Healing from within with Anindita" and get regular updates, information and inspiration which will simplify long term health creation.

NHC #37 Feel like yourself again by reconnecting with your body and making it your friend
Have you made your body your friend yet?Do you take the time to PAUSE and tune into your body?Do you love and care for your body by attending to it’s needs? Your body sends out messages and even SOS signals when required so that you stop what you are doing and pay attention and give your body what it needs. Many women today are living in survival mode with their bodies constantly stuck in a “fight or flight response”. They are chronically stressed, overwhelmed with a never ending list of things to do and responsibilities, and unable to take out any time for self care.  Is it any wonder then that so many women are dealing with various health issues like low energy, fatigue, hair loss, weight gain or weight loss resistance, and even more serious health conditions?The good news is that with self compassion you can embrace your body for what it does for you rather than just how it looks and appreciate the amazing gift that it is and make it your friend. When you value your body and actually honour it by listening to whatever messages it shares with you, you live a life that is fulfilling and even life saving. In this podcast episode, I share with you 5 ways you can start showing your body the compassion that it deserves.BONUS- I have added a 6 minute audio coaching exercise called "Befriend your body" to help coach you with how you can treat your body as a friend.Join our free, private FB group "Healing from within with Anindita" and get regular updates, information and inspiration which will simplify long term health creation.

NHC #36 Why stillness is a powerful act of self care and how a pebble can help you to access it

NHC #36 Why stillness is a powerful act of self care and how a pebble can help you to access it
In this podcast episode, I share with you three ways in which you can plan for stillness. (This is taken from the book Stillness is the key by Ryan Holiday) I also share with you a guided visualisation using a pebble to help you access the inner stillness within yourself any time that you want. (make sure that you have a pebble or a small object that you can hold in the palm of your hand to go through with the guided visualisation)Stillness is available to all of us, at any time. Sadly, in today’s world of clatter and chatter, many of us end up feeling overwhelmed, stressed out and live with a chronic low level of anxiety. Having a practice of stillness is the solution to the stress of being connected via social media, internet 24X7. As social beings, we all need to be connected to other fellow human beings and to the rest of the world to feel that we are safe and to thrive. At the same time, we also need to find ways to spend some time in quiet calm, and balance, in order to reconnect with ourselves and feel replenished.The good news is that you can make stillness a part of your life by carving out time and space for it. Now, you will use your imagination to connect with the inner stillness deep inside your body with the help of a small pebble and the guided visualisation that I take you through. Know that you can always connect with this stillness below the surface by touching it with the bottom of your in-breath, by feeling your feet connecting with the ground, or even by touching the pebble in hand. The book that I mentioned in this episode is called "Stillness is the ky" by Ryan Holiday.

NHC # 35 3 morning GRATITUDE practices which will help set the tone for your day
Your morning is an important part of your self care routine and what you focus on can set the tone for the rest of your day. This means that if you focus only on what needs to get done or your busy schedule, you will start the day feeling stressed out even before you get up from bed!As the psychologist, Rick Hanson had said, “The brain is like Velcro for negative experiences and like Teflon for positive ones. ” This means that we are primed to look for bad news and makes it easy for us to become easily stressed by our emphasis on “what’s wrong” in our life.You need to practice training your mind towards the positive in order to overcome this negativity bias by actively looking for and seeing the good in your life- all the small and big moments in your life which bring joy, connection, and peace. Over time this will become a habit and help you to live a life that is more peaceful, content, and joyful.In this episode, I share with you 3 morning practices that will help you to practice gratitude and set a tone for the day, and help you to become more resilient and deal with whatever challenges come in your way.Gratitude for small wonders- GRATITUDE JOURNALLINGBody scan with gratitudeMorning cup of tea/coffee- a guided meditationNever miss out on a podcast episode again!Sign up to receive an email about the latest podcast episode by clicking on the link belowhttps://aninditarungta.lpages.co/podcastJoin our free, private FB group "Healing from within with Anindita" and get regular updates, information and inspiration which will simplify long term health creation.

NHC #33 Self care means giving yourself permission to PAUSE
In the last 2 episodes/sessions, I have shared with you the importance of having a consistent self care practice and why you need to create your very own self care plan. In this episode, I discuss with you how taking mini breaks in your day is an integral part of your self care practice and 5 easy ways to do it. In other words, this session is about giving yourself permission to PAUSE.As women, we are natural care givers, and often, rather than asking for help and giving ourselves time to breathe, we fall into a pattern of self neglect. As a result, we start feeling deprived- of companionship, time, peace, love, attention, energy and much more. This serves neither ourselves nor those whom we love in the long run and we often end up paying a heavy price in terms of our own health.By asking yourself the question “How do I want to feel?” , you can get started by giving yourself permission.Permission to lovelive enjoyhave funPAUSE when you feel tired, deprived or overwhelmed Listen to this episode to learn more about 5 ways that you can PAUSE during your day.Never miss out on a podcast episode again!Sign up to receive an email about the latest podcast episode by clicking on the link belowhttps://aninditarungta.lpages.co/podcastJoin our free, private FB group "Healing from within with Anindita" and get regular updates, information and inspiration which will simplify long term health creation.

NHC #32 Why you need a self care plan that works for YOU
In this episode,  I discuss with you why you need to have a SELF CARE plan and it starts with assessing which of the FOUR areas of your life need the most care and attention.  If you have not done so already, make sure to check out the previous episode HERE where I take you through WHY self care is such an important aspect of your health.One of the most common reasons for many women not engaging in regular self-care is that they “don’t have time.”But as you will see, there are many different kinds of self care practices that are not very time-consuming or require a lot of planning. Once self care becomes a part of your everyday life like it has for me, you will wonder how you ever managed without it. Like me, you will also become more and more protective of your time and find ways to stick to your self care routine no matter how busy you are.In this episode, I share with you some practical ideas for self care practices that will help you to cover different areas of your life including -physical-emotional, and - spiritual wellbeing Never miss out on a podcast episode again!Sign up to receive an email about the latest podcast episode by clicking on the link belowhttps://aninditarungta.lpages.co/podcastJoin our free, private FB group "Healing from within with Anindita" and get regular updates, information and inspiration which will simplify long term health creation.

NHC #31 Self care is the best investment that you will make in your life
What is self care really?How is self care tied to self-compassion and wellbeing?Most importantly, how do you find a  version that works best for you so that you are most likely to continue with the routine especially when you are incredibly busy?There are many different ways that you can design your own self care routine. However, it all starts with the realisation that “YOU are the most important and worthwhile investment that you will make in your life”Once you assimilate this truth deep inside, you will find the will and the time to do what is needed. It all starts with this realisation as no one, not even your loved ones can do this part for you. In order to lead a productive and meaningful life you will need to put in some time to figure out the “self-investments” that will eventually pay off in the long run. Listen to this podcast episode for some ways to find a self care routine that works for YOU.Never miss out on a podcast episode again!Sign up to receive an email about the latest podcast episode by clicking on the link belowhttps://aninditarungta.lpages.co/podcastJoin our free, private FB group "Healing from within with Anindita" and get regular updates, information and inspiration which will simplify long term health creation.

NHC # 30 How you can use the power of INTENTIONS to make positive changes in your life

NHC # 30 How you can use the power of INTENTIONS to make positive changes in your life
Intentions set the stage for positive growth and change, because we’re making a choice to pay attention to something we deem worthy,” - Kristin WilsonAn intention exists behind every thought and action even if you are not aware of it. Intentions are like roadmaps that can guide you as you move through life if you choose to become aware of it. This is especially true if you are looking to make positive changes in your life and see the outcomes that you truly want. Whereas goals help you to understand where you want to go, setting intentions you become clear and focused on how you want to show up in your life. Both goals and intentions are important but play different roles in your life. To be more intentional in your daily life, ask yourself  How can I show up today that is in line with what I want to achieve today?What do I want to see more of today? (good news, wonder, acts of kindness, joy)What routines do I want to establish?How do I want to feel?However, simply by setting an intention does not MAKE this happen, it simply ALLOWS you to be more present when circumstances and opportunities present themselves. Over time, you may find that it soon becomes a way of living.First thing in the morning is one of the best times to set an intention for that day or even for the entire week. Doing this practice first thing in the morning allows you to set a tone for the day.
