No different to you
Most times when you land on a website about mental well-being, self-mastery or mindfulness you find a clinical psychologist, a yoga teacher or a neuroscientist.
I am none of these.
In fact I am no different to you; just a human being doing the best I can.
And, just like you, I have had some great times and made some amazing memories but I have had difficult times too.
A lot of the time life was good, great even, but every now and again I would feel overloaded, overwhelmed and over-scheduled and with those feelings would come sleepless nights, worry and low mood aka stress and anxiety.
And, I thought that was just how life was.
I read many books on how I might help myself but nothing really changed that is, until I learned about mindfulness.
I did a course simply out of curiosity.
However, learning how to manage the mind and drop into present moment awareness provided such a shift in my emotional well-being that I decided to qualify as a mindfulness trainer to be able to share the practice with others.
I did a course with the Mindfulness Exchange, a spinoff from the Oxford University Mindfulness Centre and now, I see others find the same benefits, when I share with them how to bring mindfulness to life.
I am listed in the Workplace MT Mindfulness Trainer directory
Since 2017, I have been teaching people privately and in workplaces about the mind and its management, as well as helping organisations and individuals better care for their mental health and well-being aka their mental wealth.
Not everyone is able to access my training sessions or 1-2-1 work-life coaching so I share information and techniques here on my blog.
Take what you want, leave what you don't want.
Take care of you.
