Mood Mapping Workshop Sat 5th June 10.00 - 5.00pm Fulham
Posted Jun 02 2010 10:07pm
Are your moods holding you back? Do you have days when you feel you can conquer the world, followed by days when you hardly want to get out of bed? Are there days when you have so much to do that you are overwhelmed, and other days when you can calmly work and nothing is too much trouble?
What is going on? In one sentence - your moods are getting in your way! The difference between those days, that are in all other ways the same, is not what is going on in your outside life, but what is going on inside you. And it is also probably true for you, that this has been going on for a while. And the problem is more likely getting worse than not, as the pressures around us increases, the pressure to perform, the pressure to keep your job and keep everyone happy around you increases year by year and even month by month.
This is the Miller moodmap.
How does that help?
The Miller moodmap forms the foundation of the moodmapping training. We believe that once you understand your moods once you know what is causing them, you can start to manage them. There are four basic moods,Action, Stressed, Depressed and Calm. These moods affect how you feel, how you think and how you behave. If you wake up in a good mood you know it is going to be a good day, equally if you wake up feeling anxious to know that the rest of the day may be difficult.
This is not rocket science! For the most part you already know everything you need to know and you already know what you should do. If only it was that easy! Moodmapping takes what you already know, looks at it in a different way and helps you make use of it in a practical everyday sort of way. For example, feeling anxious makes people look at life in a negative way. On the other hand if you were suddenly to wake up in a calm relaxed state, you could look at problems in a calm relaxed way and in that state of mind work out the best way to solve your problems, and do it.
Mood mapping helps you get to that calm relaxed state into the mood for action that helps you to sort out your problems. It helps get you out of the anxiety depression loop that traps so many people in permanently negative state of mind. Above all it helps you understand how you feel and why you feel that way and what you can do about it. It also helps you know what works. There is no point persisting in doing something if it isn't helping! Moodmapping helps you work out whether or not something is working for you and helps you find something different if that's what you need. There are five keys to mood, your surroundings, your physical health, your relationships, your strategies and what you know and your personality. These five keys help you manage your mood and keep ahead of your game.
This Saturday you will learn how to moodmap and how to use this technique to help yourself and the people around you feel better.
Most of us do not have the time or money to see a therapist will personal coach regularly, we have to manage ourselves. If you are a manager in the business, you have to help manage your staff, if you are a therapist your clients want therapies they can manage themselves.
Moodmapping is new and it is different. It is about helping yourself and helping the people around you. You start by learning exactly how you feel now, recording it, making a change and then working out whether you feel better or whether you need to do something different. Because unless you measure how you feel you can't be sure that you really feel better and that what you have done has made a difference.
You can give someone a fish and you feed them for a day. You can have therapy and feel better for a week. On the other hand, you can teach someone to fish and they can feed themselves. You learn moodmapping and help yourself feel better more energetic for the rest of your life. Even more exciting, you can teach moodmapping to the people around you, and they too can start to feel better.
This Saturday, you will spend the day with people like you want to learn something new and want to help themselves. You will do different exercises that help you understand how you feel now and where you are now. You get a workbook that can form the beginning of your own personal journal of self-management.
By the end of the day you will
