by Yen-Lu Chow, Co-Founder & Executive Chairman, WholeTree Foundation and Over-The-Rainbow, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of Asia Institute of Mentoring, Executive Mentor of YSI SEA and Founder of the Deep Human Movement.
“Self-care is giving the world the best of you, instead of what’s left of you.” - Katie Reed.
Mental wellness is not just the absence of mental illness, but the attainment of happiness and well-being. To create positive change in your mental world and to enhance your mental well-being, you need to start by looking within; tuning into your body, your breath and your mind, in order to get your inside right. When you are calm and happy inside, your outside world will fall into place. This is a journey in holistic self-care.

01:00PM - Mindful Qi-Gong
by Yong Zhen. Ms Yong Zhen struggled with anxiety and pressure while managing her F&B business. Though successful, money and success certainly did not fix her dissatisfaction. In one of her life’s most critical moments, she made a choice.
Putting aside the demanding nature of a business and fulfilling the role of a mother, she started on a journey to unravel the inner workings of the mind. Three decades of learning from teachers of different practices led her to incorporate silent meditation and movement-oriented meditation such as Qigong. This has miraculously reduced her emotional baggage.
Today at 65 she has rewritten her life story. She now devotes her life to helping others "come unstuck" in their practice of mindfulness.
Awareness Is not a concept at play. Rather it is “seeing” the working of the mind.
Understanding it, one’s begun to stop grasping on whatever that arises. The mind and body are inextricably link. In order the “see” the mind, one practices slowing down the body, with the help of the breath with this intention set by the mind, it become obedient
Why breath? Breath is the only language the mind understands. because breath is an aspect of nature which is in line with the mind and body.
One method is by lengthening our breath - learn how to “breath like a baby” and experience:
The lengthening breath that allows the mind to “make space”. Reduce racing thoughts and grasping. That is utter freedom.
Enhanced awareness – with calmness be able to see the raising and ceasing of phenomena, and the body can begin to relax. This is intelligent living.
When we are too slow to cut the thought, and emotions arises - release them...
