Favourite self-care strategy:
The breathing triangle: Breathe in for a count of 4, hold the breath for a count of 4 and breathe out for a count of 4. This technique moves focus onto the breath, away from the situation which is causing stress or discomfort, oxygenates the blood and calms the physical and emotional state.
Key advice for clients developing wellbeing strategies:
We can all increase our wellbeing by making conscious choices to do so. Having implementable tools to use allows us to practice and create new habits by focusing on increasing our experiences of positive emotions each and every day. Start with small, easy to do changes, and connect to things which have meaning to you. A smart start can have big impact- chose one thing at a time and build on it.
Outside of work:
Jodi is likely to be in a DIY frenzy at home or at the beach with her kids.
