In 2014, I was living a dream...
I had packed up my life in Sydney to take a 18 month gap year, travelling through Europe, exploring and discovering new places, meeting wonderful people, hiking, snowboarding, surfing & so much amazing food.
My husband and I were home schooling our two daughters whilst moving location every 4-5 days through Italy, France, Germany & Morocco. We even sailed from Spain to Dubai so we could fly back for our niece's wedding.
Our social media was filled with beautiful images of wonderful places, however the reality behind the scenes was quite a different story.
Meditation - Sicilian courtyard
I was cranky & stressed out, managing everyone's needs & expectations, reducing conflict between family members & trying to relax!
I knew that to truly enjoy this incredible experience I had to change something.
As an experienced wellbeing coach & yoga teacher, I knew I had to start with myself.
It was at Plum Village, a Buddhist Monastery in the South of France, home of Vietnamese refugee and peace activist Thich Nhat Hahn, I was reminded of power of the zen way of living with mindfulness. So I committed to a daily meditation practice.
From that day forward, no matter where we were or what we were doing, each & every day I would meditate. But more than that, I would be mindful in each moment that I could.
It changed everything.
I was able to manage the stress better, resolve the inevitable problems & find joy even in the most trying of circumstances.
Find Your Zen is a curation of the meditation techniques I used during that trip to, reduce overwhelm, stress & tension, connecting with more peace, joy & calm.
These practices helped me to become more relaxed & present making me a better Mother, wife & human being.
I share them here, so you can find the one (or more) to help you improve the quality of your life and your interactions at work, home or play.
