Chris Lovett - Simplify Your Life - The Power of Decluttering

We just love stuff, we can't get enough of it. Currently the UK is holding on to more clutter than the rest of Europe. It's estimated that the average home has around £1500 worth of unused and unloved gear in the dark corners of our homes. Our work lives have gone from busy to super busy and our relationship with tech keeps us available 24/7. We've become a generation of consumers and it's negatively impacting our physical and mental health. A wellbeing app won't save us, it's time to start letting go. It's time to go from consumer to curator. This fun interactive session will help with learning the impacts of stuff, how to start simplifying and achieve all your aspirations with less, whilst having a positive impact on businesses, people and planet.

The main journey he coaches works on a 5-piece focus which goes beliefs-thoughts-feelings-actions-results and it’s this format that gives people what they need to get the results they desire and much more. Shane teaches breathwork for nervous system modulation along with mindset training and visualisation meditation for subconscious reprogramming and future imprinting. Those modalities along with mindful living are his go to for serving others from root upwards helping people transform their lives in a hugely impactful and sustainable way. “My intention is to help people stand strong in the foundations of love, gratitude, and freedom”.
