Mel Robbins’ 5 Second Rule

The revolutionary process created by Mel Robbins.

Although Mel does not specifically label her process as a mindfulness tool, it certainly is effective in moving a person out of autopilot and into the present moment. Once you can get the knack of it, this process can change your life.

In Mel’s own words:
‘The 5 Second Rule is simple. If you have an instinct to act on a goal, you must physically move within 5 seconds or your brain will kill it.
The moment you feel an instinct or a desire to act on a goal or a commitment, use the Rule.
When you feel yourself hesitate before doing something that you know you should do, count 5-4-3-2-1-GO and move towards action.’

Mel is a treat to watch in this interview where she explains how to use the 5 Second Rule in a variety of situatuions. She really is an inspiration.

The flu isn’t really anything to sneeze at. Each year in South Africa it kills about 10,000 people, those five years and older. While that’s a relatively small number compared with the past year’s Covid-19 deaths, it’s still a heavy toll. 

What if my human right clashes with your human right?

What if my human right clashes with your human right?

On 21 March, we will be celebrating Human Rights Day in South Africa. It is a time for us to reflect on our individual human rights, and – more importantly – to consider how we can support others to bring these ideas into reality. In other words, a reminder to embrace the spirit of “Ubuntu”, I am because you are.
