Dear Natural Health Colleague,

You spend a lot of time looking after others. But how does stress show up in your life?

  • Does it come as a struggle to find a sense of balance?  Or the sensation that you are always putting your happiness on hold?
  • Does stress show up sense of being held back from your full potential?
  • Or does it feel hard to get through to the end of the day? Like your important tasks or conversations are a battle?

We know exactly where you are coming from. In fact, if there’s anything we know a think or two about, it’s stress.

Since 1994 our organisation has been working to train mainstream and complementary health professionals to help reduce the devastating effect of stress on a baby’s developing brain.

And in doing so, we have supported thousands of people doing the most stressful jobs in the world: in child abuse services, trauma centres, war zones, burns units, and many other places most people never see. Even though working in some of the most challenging places, life doesn’t stop: we all still have families to raise, bills to be paid, repairs to be organised, and life to be lived!

By far most popular support we’ve ever provided to our people to help them cope with stress, stay focused, and feel in control is mindfulness education.

And now we are able to make this self-care resource available for FREE to members of our organisation!!

Because we have such a great relationship with IICT, and we know the difference you make in the lives of others, we’ve organised an easy way for you to access this resource.  

This offer is EXCLUSIVE to members of IICT, and expires at midnight, Sunday 22 Jan 2017 (or earlier if we run out).

The general public tends to see stress as something that belongs only to certain types of people. However, as someone who supports people’s health every day, you know that isn’t true. Our everyday experiences: owning a small business, running a household, providing for a family, going through relationship changes, and caring for others are all recognised as major sources of stress. And even though you might do some of these things by choice, don’t you wish you could get through it all with greater joy and contentment?

You have good reason to want this. Long-term, low-grade chronic stress is known to be a risk factor for heart disease, insomnia, headaches, weight gain, premature ageing and some gut problems. Get your stress under control, and improve your ability to think clearly, to care for others, to manage day-to-day problems and to follow your dreams.

This online program is PERFECT for anyone who wants to reduce stress and worry in their life, has very little time to themselves, and wants to gain a greater sense of calm and balance.

Have you heard of mindfulness before, but not known where to start…or found it difficult to stick with it? Or seen those stress management programs that require lots of money (a BIG RED FLAG)? Perhaps you’ve advised clients to look into mindfulness meditation, but haven’t yet had the chance to try it for yourself?  We’ve found a program that is easy, private and fits in with the busy lifestyle of our members.

Our people have loved using this program and we want to get those benefits to YOU too. It’s never been easier to learn some of the skills for managing stress right from your mobile phone or computer.

Learning how to manage stress and calm your mind could be one of the most empowering things you’ve EVER done in your life. We provide our members with a subscription to a UK-based program called Headspace (not related to the Australian govt. Headspace service!)…this is our preferred method for stress management. All members receive a FULL, FREE, 12-month online subscription to hundreds of hours of Headspace programs.

With your FREE Headspace subscription you get UNLIMITED ACCESS to hundreds of hours of guided activities to help manage stress, conflict and emotion. Today, it is easier than EVER to get your stress under control and your mind working WITH you to bring balance and calm to your life!!!

Headspace is a step-by-step program, starting with a 10-minute a day foundation program. Once you have the basics under your belt you can branch out. Use different packs in the program to apply the techniques in different areas of life.

Your online programs can be accessed INSTANTLY! This is a “learn at your own pace” program and you are in the driver’s seat.

Mindfulness is making a real difference and bringing real results to so many people:

Sydney Morning Herald, 21/11/16

…mindfulness training courses are becoming the norm in huge corporations in big cities around the world. Companies are finding it reduces stress and absenteeism, increases productivity, develops better leaders, and generates more creative workplaces. It also enhances cognitive thinking skills and triggers more imaginative solutions.

Richard Feloni, Business Insider, 21/08/2016

Ever since I decided to try out the Headspace [mindfulness program] after hearing about it on Tim Ferriss’ podcast…I’ve been much calmer and more collected in times of stress. I’ve dealt with…anxiety since I was 11 years old, so that’s an accomplishment. Headspace isn’t a hippy-dippy placebo; it’s a straightforward teacher that helps you learn the basics of breathing and visualisation associated with secular meditation.

Dr. Hedy Kober, Neuroscientist, Yale University, TEDx Presenter

[Mindfulness meditation] did to my mind what going to the gym did to my body — it made it both stronger and more flexible. I started meditating to deal with a break up, but found it helped handle stress and unpleasant feelings in all areas of life.

University of California, LA, 5/2/15

A 2015 study from UCLA compared people who had practices mindfulness meditation with those who didn’t. Researchers found that those who practiced mindfulness meditation showed a lower frequency of loss of grey matter from the brain as they aged.

 Tom Daley, British Olympian, 26/07/16

I massively recommend Headspace. Lots of the English Institute of Sport guys are actually using it. It’s helped me…mainly focusing on my breathing, being completely in the moment and not getting ahead of myself. Not focusing on things that have been and gone… Every morning I do 10 minutes of mindfulness where I do meditation and I use that in competition and every day life. I’m getting better and better in being able to zone in on what I need to focus on. I started at the beginning of this year and I’ve done it every day since…I feel like that’s one of the reasons why this year I’ve been the most consistent that I’ve been in competition.

Anna Maxted, The Times, 26/07/2016

Admittedly, I had low expectations of Headspace for Kids – a..feature of the adult program used by 7.5 million people, including Emma Watson and Gwyneth Paltrow. Not me, though. We’re not that kind of family: we’re sporty and rarely sit still. Meditation isn’t part of our vocabulary.

Yet my boys do feel anxious from time-to-time and my attempts to relax them often fail. So, I reason, we might as well give this wafty self-help business a go. I’m astonished at their enthused response. We inhale and exhale, scanning our bodies and considering how tense each part feels. During the first bite-sized breathing exercise, Conrad fidgets but afterwards declares he’s ‘floppy and relaxed.’ Conrad prefers meditating outside, ‘so when you breathe in, you get fresh air.’

…its other positive effects are instant: one calm session invites kids to consider what mood they’re in, and access their feelings. Caspar tearfully details his concern about a classmate who he thinks is lonely. We agree to invite her over.

…Meanwhile, the sleep sessions are a revelation. As we lie on the kids’ carpet, listening to him exhorting us to relax our legs, feet, toes… my sons fall uncharacteristically silent. Conrad yawns, ‘I can’t move.’ Caspar murmurs, ‘It’s like my bones have been glued.’ Minutes later he’s asleep. The following day, Caspar scrawls in my notebook: ‘It makes you forget everything bad you’re thinking about, and relaxes everyone.’

I realise we’ve stumbled upon a life-changing habit. Forget Pokemon Go – Headspace is the app your kids really need you to download this summer.
