“We are living in a time where we think everything is technology,

everything is pressing buttons, everything is economy, and we are losing sight in reality.”

I see people trying to cope in this frantic world dealing with illness and stress . The world has moved at a fast manic pace. We do not know how to feel our bodies anymore unless we are on holiday,  this is when we have a heightened sense of awareness in the present moment and we feel invigorated happy and feel a sense of wellbeing. The Pandemic we face has forced some of us to live in the present moment having to stay at home , it has put a stop to almost life itself. This has been extremely difficult but we can learn from this with acceptance and we can all learn and harvest mindfulness as a  powerful coping tool to grow stronger and resilient. It gives us a clearer sense of direction working with stress and anxiety, pain and illness. These proven techniques I have learnt can change the way our brain deals with difficulties and challenges in life.  

I teach and practice harnessing the Scandinavian way of mindfulness navigating and practising this  powerful way self care. Research shows us that learning mindfulness can help us deal with the psychological and physiological aspects of illness. My vision is to help society learn what I have learnt. Times have been difficult for me and without mindfulness you would not be reading this.

Spending time with my son in Denmark I have seen how they work with mindfulness. The Danes have a goal of helping society learn more about the best ways to promote mental health and wellbeing.  They are known as the happiest nation in the world learning to cope with difficult situations in life this is known as (hygge). The word hygge comes from a Danish word meaning “to give courage, comfort,  joy” so I share this journey and this is my core approach to my journey and  navigation  through tough times.
