Since April 2020, we have been joined by special Friends of Six Senses to help us dive deeper into different aspects of wellness. Our pick of the pops below covers a range of different topics that we hope you find comforting and helpful in these uncertain times.

How’s your battery? With Tim Jack Adams

Why is it that when people actively engage in nature, they become healthier and happier? This one question sent Tim Jack Adams on a 5-year journey, connecting with practitioners, universities and professors all over the world.

His research led him to confirm why when we get out in nature it is amazing for our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health. Wellness takes a deliberate effort and it’s the piece that we often forget.

For example, every night before we go to bed we make a deliberate effort to plug in our technology so when we wake up our devices are fully charged to take on the day with full productivity, but how often can we say the same for ourselves? How often do you think about your own body and mind being a battery and the things we need to do to reconnect and recharge for everyday wellness?

To recharge your battery, you need to look at creating time to reconnect to self, others and nature and more specifically creating a daily rhythm that combines specific tools and activities that supports and recharges your battery each day so you can thrive sustainably.

The fun part is seeing how many tools you can combine into one activity or experience to recharge your battery.

Watch Tim’s full interview with our Wellness Pioneer Anna Bjurstam to find out more about the motivation behind his wellness and GreenX7 app.

Reprogram your immune system with Marisa Peer

Did you know that thinking negatively can cause a cascade of chemicals that can suppress our immune systems and make us not only feel bad but be more susceptible to viruses and bugs?

Marisa Peer, UK’s top therapist, shared some of her favorite – and most powerful tools – that can rewire your thoughts and beliefs to produce dramatic, life-changing results to your health.

The defining self: People who take control of their thinking tend to have a better belief system because they choose what they think about. For example, with COVID-19, you can’t control the virus but you can control how you choose to look at it.

Change your mind, change your immune system: What about those of us who worry about everything? How do we start thinking differently? Marisa calls those thoughts WPOs or Worst Possible Outcome thoughts. Some of us are handling really tough circumstances right now. Marisa’s trick - look at the worst possible outcome and then flip it.

Good mental hygiene: It’s important to go to bed early, drink water, do some exercise, but more than anything, Marisa reminds us to think good thoughts. One of the best steps she shared for fantastic mental hygiene is to write this on your mirror - I am enough. Don't wait for someone else to say these words to you. Say them yourself!

Watch Marissa’s full interview with our Wellness Pioneer Anna Bjurstam for more ideas bout reprogramming your immune system at a cellular level through the power of your thoughts. 

Meditation for fidgety skeptics with Jeff Warren

Can’t turn off your brain? Did you know meditation cultivates five basic “medicines” when we sit still?

  1. Concentration: For most of us, our attention is co-opted by outside distractions. Start by choosing what to pay attention to and strengthen that muscle and that will be a medicine that helps you in all areas of your life.
  2. Absorption: After choosing a point of focus, then get absorbed in the flow of that. When you get lost in a point of focus, when time stops and your mind is not jumping around all over the place, this is very healing and nourishing.
  3. Sanity: Meditation can help you pop out of the trance of your fixations, anxieties or worries because it helps you see what your mind is doing. Meditation can help you get out of the insanity.
  4. Caring: Where else can you practice caring well for yourself or another? Whether it’s a self-compassion practice or a loving-kindness practice, attending to the humanity in yourself or another is a core human training.
  5. Equanimity: Surrendering to what is in the moment. The more you accept what is right now, the more present you can be. And this leads to the sense that nothing needs to be different in the moment and everything you need is right here. That is enormously sustaining.

Disrupt or be disrupted with John Sanei

What mindset do you need to thrive in today's rapidly changing world? Although as humans, we have a deep drive for safety and security, what we have to realize, according to John Sanei, is that nobody can tell us what’s coming next. We have to become comfortable with uncertainty.

The power of the past: John shared how when we start any task, our brains need three things. We need to understand duration (how long something will take), the path (how it will get done), and outcome (what we think will happen). This is biologically wired into our brains. When we can’t predict what will happen, our brains look to the past for some type of anchoring to feel safe.

The power of our curiosity: In order to shift our orientation from fear to joy, we need to get connected to our curiosity because that is what will pull us forward with excitement and passion. He advocates for listening to our curiosity and really getting to know what makes us come alive. If we can do this, we will live in a state of passionate flow where we are connected to our genius.

Watch John’s full interview with our Wellness Pioneer Anna Bjurstam to discover his tips to disrupt your life and create a new future that may be even better than what you were planning.
