My mission in this life is to help women find true peace within themselves by mastering their mind and living with more presence and ease.
I love teaching others how to use mindfulness and yoga to experience relief from stress, anxiety, and worry.
Are you tired of living a chaotic life and experiencing relentless stress, worry, and anxiety?
Are you wanting to find ways to reduce your stress so you can feel calm and collected rather than burnt-out and run off your feet?
Are you frustrated that you can’t find strategies that help you slow your racing mind and manage overwhelming emotions?
I get it! Like you and other modern women, life keeps us busy. I’m not immune to stress and overwhelm either, but I have found simple and powerful ways of keeping stress to a minimum to live a more vibrant, harmonious life.
Around 10 years ago I was in the same position; looking for something, anything, to help me feel less stressed, less anxious, and happier somehow. I experienced daily stress, worry, and anxiety. I was easily stressed over little things, constantly worrying about the future, and feared things that mostly never happened. I was irritable, anxious, unhappy, and experienced anxiety attacks. I didn’t truly know how stressed I was because for me this was my ‘norm’ and from the outside everything in my life seemed okay.
Back then I found it hard to relax and sleep at night. I experienced ongoing tension and neck pain, I’d overeat when I was emotional, lash out at those close to me, and let my highly critical negative thoughts dictate my life! I was trapped in an inner world of conflict but kept it under control just enough that no-one really knew how I felt.
The tipping point was when I saw others doing the things I dreamt of doing and realised my stress and anxiety was holding me back in life. I decided that from then on, I wanted to enjoy life and find true happiness. At the same time, I came across yoga and mindfulness. I was given the opportunity to study mindfulness as a therapeutic tool while completing my counselling studies.
Things quickly started to change once mindfulness entered my life and I committed to a daily practice. I used mindfulness to make permanent, positive changes in my life. I also began practising yoga and meditation, changed unhelpful mindsets and thoughts, prioritised self-care, and started speaking up as my true self.
I experimented until I found the best strategies that worked to reduce my stress immensely and I learned how to set my life up in a way that was fully conducive to feeling happy, peaceful, light, free, and balanced. I made some big life decisions, but it was truly the small, simple, daily exercises that really helped me overcome chronic stress. I changed from being a stressed, anxious, on edge person to a happier, more relaxed, confident, and easy-going human being!
Now let’s be honest, I am not totally immune to stress; I still experience overwhelm and anxiety at times. However, I have a wide range of tools that make it easier for me to tackle challenges and not let stress consume my whole life. The frequency and intensity of the stress I experience is nowhere near the level I once felt it!
Mindful living is now the foundation of how I live my life and I believe it is one of the key factors that allows me to live with more peace, joy, and freedom than ever before.
I rarely ever experience overwhelming stress like before, nor have I had a single panic or anxiety attack in years. I sleep well nearly every night. Negative, fearful thoughts have lost their power and control over me, and now I’m in charge of my mind! These days I wake up eager for the day ahead knowing exactly how to set myself up for a productive day that flows, knowing I have all the tools I need to handle any challenge or stress that comes my way. The ripple effect of mindful living has improved my relationships, my health, my work, and my overall happiness!
