Saturday 19th October 2 – 4 pm Fusion: Seize the Day – Mark + Sal  £30

Do you have endless to-do lists but don’t feel you make progress?
Often find yourself with too little time to get everything done?
Would like to feel less stressed and overwhelmed?
Do you find you sometimes have low energy levels in the morning?
Need some fresh inspiration and vitality!? Join us for our autumn workshop and we’ll show you how to seize the day. We are excited to be back with another unique blend of movement and mindset training, this time with the intention of helping you take charge of each and every day.

Movement: We believe that everyday should begin with moving the body – it doesn’t have to be a long workout, just 5 minutes is enough if you don’t have any longer. One barrier to getting this done is actually knowing what to do. We will teach you how, in one easy to learn routine! The benefits of a morning exercise routine, even a very short one, in helping set you up for a healthy and productive day are immense

Have more energy for the day
Improve fitness
Kickstart your metabolism
Aids weight loss
Look better, feel better
Keeps the mind calmer and focused
Reduce stress
Start the day with a win! To help you with this we have created the ‘Fusion: Morning Energiser’, which you will learn at the start of this workshop.This routine – which can take as little as 5 minutes, or as long as half an hour – is a blend of mindfulness, qigong, yoga, and martial arts. It includes an energising meditation, breathing and movement sequences, flowing movements (which can be adapted to any level/ability), some light cardio and strength to give the metabolism and heart a morning kick start, and finishes off with a grounding and calming exercise. You will feel awake, refreshed, energised – and ready to seize the day!

Mindset: When you pre-determine when you’re going to do what, you remove the need for decision-making within the moment as you’ve already created a precise plan in advance. Psychologists call this an ‘implementation intention’.

A study in the British Journal of Health Psychology showed that creating such an implementation intention increases the success rate of following through with an activity from 34% to 91%.

In other words, by scheduling your day, you’re much less likely to procrastinate. There are some simple yet powerful steps that cut through the mental clutter, get clarity and create a way to get things done.

You will learn to do this including the following steps:1 – Principles, and what really matters: uncover your hiding principles and things you value most so you can plan and act in line with these
2 – Action = traction: When we align our action to principles, things flow.
3 – Optimise your ‘To-do’ list – we will show you how to prioritise so you get things done and feel good.

Places are limited on these workshops, so early booking is recommended.Early bird discounts are available and the price is £25 if you book  before September 19th .For details on how to book, please email fusion-training@outlook.com
