The Chocolate Meditation is a fun mindfulness exercise for everybody. Focusing on the whole process of eating chocolate allows you to notice the difference between a more aware mental state versus the way we normally operate in life. The more aware state, also called ‘being mode’, allows you to do two things:
- to be really present in your life for the good things you are experiencing, like eating a yummy chocolate or enjoying your time with family and friends;
- to be aware of unhelpful thoughts and emotions and choose how you react to them. The main benefit of that is that you can cope with stress, anxiety, low mood and the challenges of everyday life more skilfully.
At the end of the session, you will be equipped with simple yet effective strategies that you can work into your life to deal with stress & anxiety at work- for instance before doing a presentation or going to an important meeting. We can also discuss any particular issues you would like us to cover during the workshop, which you feel your team may benefit from.
