Calm Focus in 5-5-5 easy steps

by Resources

GET IN THE NOW

Try out this process an essential life coaching tool
( I usually start most sessions with this) as it really focus’s the mind on right NOW.

This is about FULLY engaging all your senses in what is happening RIGHT NOW

SIGHT + SOUND + FEELING……one sense at a time

Take your time – anything from 2 minutes up to 10 minutes – ( recommend 3 times a day )

Just be aware, only describe to yourself what it IS 
if it reminds you of something, come back to what it actually IS
If you make a judgement about it, come back to what it actually IS

Spend a few moments just experiencing each item you hold in your awareness

  • SIGHT
    Like a photographer or with artists eyes.
    Start with noticing one thing you can SEE, explore ALL its qualities
    The shape, colour, size, symmetry, texture, any repeating patterns, how the light touches it, the shading etc.
    Repeat with 4 other things.
  • SOUND
    Notice one thing you can HEAR, explore ALL its qualities
    The direction, speed, frequency, and all the sounds within the sound, A big sound or thin sound. rough or smooth?
    Repeat with 4 other things.
  • FEELING 
    Notice one thing you can FEEL, your left ear perhaps, or your left big toe
    Explore ALL its qualities of, temperature, pressure, sensations
    Repeat with 4 other things.

Now ask yourself – how do I feel emotionally compared to before I began this?

Usually more calm and centred most people experience.

Maybe go over it again a couple of times if you have time.

The next level of this is to ask your self to remember and enjoy remembering

Your positive traits and skills.
Skills you have leaned and celebrate them.
Your ability to love.
Times when you have found a creative solution to a problem
If in sales –
How you felt getting the contract / sale
How you felt enjoying discussing the item being sold
how you felt when you made the appointment
What was it about the person you dealt with that made it easy
Your sense of humour.
The time you chose to do something and was 100% sure if was the right thing to do
In the past you may have focussed mainly on what went wrong. All of this tunes your mind toward your skills attitudes and solutions inside you.

Notice this exercise is simply helping you to consciously move you focus and stay focussed on what you have chosen. Many people with emotional issues have lost sight of this simple ability.
