WHAT IS LIFESTYLE AWARENESS

Lifestyle Awareness is an Occupational Therapy service for professionals who want to improve their mental & emotional wellbeing, resilience and unlock their potential in a sustainable way. As our model is focused on prevention & skill developement, the approach is program based and not one to one working.

Background

At the heart of the program are four foundational pillars:

COMPASSION

Cultivate compassion for oneself, connect with our shared humanity and reduce the pattern of striving and self-criticism whilst still giving your best at the moment.

IMAGINATION

Imagination is the most powerful of our inner muscles, learn to use it to innovate, create and connect to what matters.

OCCUPATION

Create the meaningful structure and lifestyle that keeps you well connected to what you desire and need out of life, e.g. goals, purpose, and increasing your social wellbeing.

FLEXIBILITY

Psychological flexibility is the ability to stay grounded in the present moment, even during challenging times and remain focused and connected to what matters most.

HOW THE FITMINDS PROGRAMME IS DIFFERENT

The FITMINDS programme is the first online membership programme of its kind. The approach and teachings are drawn from Occupational Therapy principles and Third-wave therapies such as Mindfulness & Acceptance Based approaches, Compassion Focused Therapy, Relaxation and Imagery training.

You will have access to your own membership portal with teachings from experts from around the world. There are two group programs available which can be completed on your own or join the weekly coaching/ accountability sessions, to ensure you stay on track.

FAQ'S

We have tried to put as much information as possible here so please read information below if you have any question.

Q1. How much of my time do I need to allocate to FITMINDS?

A. About one hour per day, which can be spread throughout the day! Best of all, the sessions are built around your lifestyle. You can join from any device, at any time, whether you are commuting, on the go or able to find a peaceful hour during the weekend.

Q2. What if I cannot join the live weekly sessions?

Do not worry, the programme is designed to be flexible. Each weekly session is conducted live (via Zoom) and recorded. The recording is then made available for anyone who missed the session, or for participants to revisit the training at a later stage.

Q3. How many people are in each group session?

Group sizes are focused to ensure we give each participant the appropriate amount of time and support needed to meet their goals.

Q4. How do I monitor my performance?

At the beginning of the programme, we conduct assessments across multiple areas to understand where you are at and to ensure the programme is suitable. Each week you will be invited to an accountability session providing you with additional support to ensure you stay on track. Every 2-3 weeks, performance monitoring is carried out to ensure progress is sustained.
