Mood Foods...

brain food Sep 03, 2020

When you think of the options you have for improving your mood, you may not consider the contents of your shopping basket. Whether it’s the ups and downs of everyday life or more enduring mood challenges, the foods you eat can have a big influence on your emotions and how you experience them.

The link between food and mood is complex but research points to several important relationships. Your diet affects neurotransmitter production, inflammation, stress hormones, blood sugar fluctuations and gut health and these things directly impact your mental wellbeing.  

Holistic nutritionist and chef Kate Spina shares her top 3 tips with Mindology :

1. Eat at Regular Times

The simplest thing you can do for your mood is to eat enough at regular times throughout the day. This gives your brain enough energy to function at it's best and helps you feel calmer. When we skip meals, we can feel distracted and irritable so plan for regular meals or snacks before you get ...

What kind of mindset do you have.... and is it time for a change?

mind Aug 27, 2020

We often think we are just who we are – born the way we are, and that’s just it. But what if we became more self-aware, learned to understand ourselves, and acknowledged how we automatically react to situations that may not be the most beneficial for ourselves. What if we could recognise and understand how to change our mindset about our self.

There’s an important term called ‘Growth Mindset’ developed by Carol Dweck Professor of Psychology at Stanford University and author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. In Carol’s words, “Individuals who believe their talents can be developed (through hard work, good strategies, and input from others) have a growth mindset. They tend to achieve more than those with a more fixed mindset (those who believe their talents are innate gifts). “

What exactly does this mean for you, and how can you develop a growth mindset?

We know now that our brains are far more malleable than we thought....

What's is Self-Hypnosis anyway...?

mind Aug 10, 2020

Self Hypnosis is simply being in a meditative sometimes trance like state. When we are in this state we have a highly focused attention with heightened suggestibility. There are 2 parts to self-hypnosis – firstly taking yourself into a calm meditative state (this is an essential first step and is where there is similarity to meditation), and once there making suggestions to yourself of what you want. 

Self-hypnosis is a tool and technique to embrace and make it work for you. Self-hypnosis is like meditation, except more goal-orientated, which is why many success-driven people are drawn to it.  All forms of hypnosis in theory is self-hypnosis, because no one can make you do anything you don’t want to do - despite what you see on TV about hypnosis being brainwashing or mind control.

Most of us have experienced some kind of hypnosis before in our everyday life. Watching your favourite tv show – fixated on the show, and all other things in...

Sleep State

sleep Jul 26, 2020

Struggle with sleep apnoea or insomnia? Read on for some helpful tips.

Lack of sleep and sleep exhaustion is not healthy, but there is alarming new research emerging about the negative impact of sleep deprivation.

The Sleep and Learning Lab at Michigan State University conducted one of the largest sleep studies to date, and it showed that sleep deprivation affects us much more than prior theories thought.

"Our research showed that sleep deprivation doubles the odds of making 'placekeeping' errors and triples the number of lapses in attention, which is startling,” Associate Professor Kimberley Fenn stated.
'Placekeeping' is defined as the ability to complete a series of steps without losing one's place, so that means concentration, focus and cognitive ability.

"Sleep-deprived individuals need to exercise caution in absolutely everything that they do, and simply can't trust that they won't make costly errors. Often, like when behind the wheel of a car, these errors can have...

Journaling ... the power of pen to paper

journaling Jul 20, 2020

It's something I now do every single day, without fail. Even if I scribble quickly in my notepad while preparing the kids breakfast.... I do it without fail, I am talking about penning my daily goals (which are the small steps that form the bigger goals of life) . I find it focuses my mind and reminds me of MY unique purpose.

My scribble could include words like calm and confident, parenting with calmness, do 10 mins of yoga each day, drink water, breathe more, focus and clarity ....I'm someone who has 100 ideas all at once so need to organise and prioritise regularly...

I find I write the same thing or very similar over and over each day and that's great. It's all reinforcing my goals, my focus and my vision. The ultimate aim is that I am telling my brain and my mindset what I want day in and day out.

So why does writing down your goals and dreams down on paper have such a profound impact... the answer lies in the chemistry of our brains. Our beautiful clever and intricate brains,...

What is hypnosis?

hypnosis Jul 20, 2020

What is hypnosis and hypnotherapy.... what actually happens during hypnosis and how it differs from meditation. Here are some of  most common questions & answers around hypnosis. Contact us if you have a question 

What is hypnosis & hypnotherapy?

A good definition for hypnosis is, that it is a state of mind, a state of consciousness where you move yourself into relaxed meditative, calm state and when we are in this state we can often still talk, feel, taste smell all our senses are still there - but we quieten our conscious mind. Our conscious mind is that busy, overthinking, rational part of our mind.

Self-hypnosis is simply taking yourself into a calm relaxed state, calm your busy mind and make positive statements to yourself.

What are some of the most common misconceptions about hypnotherapy?

One myth is hypnotherapy is a form of brain washing or mind control. That it’s a form of magic, and you will do things or say things you don’t want to...

It’s All in the Mind: The Power of Visualisation

"It’s all in the mind." No truer sentence has ever been spoken. Or, as Buddha put it: “What we think, we become.”

Many a great business leader, celebrity, actor and musician who has made it big seems to swear by the power of visualisation. There’s even a quote by comedian Jim Carey attesting to the power of the mind that has gone viral on social media so many times I wasn’t even sure it was true, until I saw Carey interviewed on The Graham Norton Show, where he explained how he visualised receiving a cheque for $10,000,000 every single day for four years. As it turned out, his first acting pay cheque was exactly that – an incredible $10 million.    

Tennis legend Serena Williams meanwhile claims that 70% of her game is in her mind. However, she’s not the only sportsperson to do so – in 2019 Serena was actually defeated at the US Open by 19-year-old Bianca Andreescu, who said post-match: “I’ve been...

Kindness ... Mental Health Awareness Week UK

This week it is Mental Health Awareness Week.. and this year's theme is KINDNESS –a topic that feels especially important to all of us right now.   Wherever you are in the world let's spend this week being kind to ourselves and others.

Our mental health is being tested like never before with COVID-19....  so now more than ever we need to show ourselves kindness and love, as well as support others in anyway we can.

The act of being kind can trigger a release of the hormone oxytocin which in turn reduces stress, decreases blood pressure and improves the cardiovascular.

To celebrate moments of kindness, we are holding a series of giveaways with some amazing brands each day on our instagram account @Mindology.app so make sure you follow us to enter.
