As a working mum, juggling is one of my skills. However, back from glorious holiday in the south of France, let's be honest, it's hard to juggle again work, childcare, meetings, family matters and others.

I decided, to meditate again with the app Headspace and the package Patience because, in the bustle and hustle of London, patience is not my forte.

However, meditating by listening to Andy Puddicombe's soothing and gentle voice helps me considerably to remain patient and calm in many situations, either conflicting or not. 

Being able to do so every day is a life-changing experience. Your awareness is acute, your focus is better and your ability to find new ideas or solutions increase. Sounds too good to be true but this is it. It's real, right that practising meditation consistently helps your brain to rewire and put you at ease with the environment around you. You are sending positive and calm vibes and people, consequently are receptive/responsive to that.

When you meditate:

  • you're reducing the chaos in your mind
  • you're making peace with the negative loop in your mind
  • you're learning to create space for more calm and serenity
  • you're tapping into your inner stillness and strength

I know it may sound impossible when we are bombarded by so much information, responsibilities and expectations from others. However, I genuinely think that meditation is an efficient response to resolve a lot of your worries, concerns and various diseases.

With meditation, it's like regaining your posture, your place in the world in a harmonious manner and be more compassionate with others. It's like walking in the grass at sunrise and marvel at the wonders of nature. It's open the door to let your mind have a go, breathe again, relax or be. 

I manage much more events or circumstances calmly and quietly than previously and, I have to say, I'm amazed by the result of this package Patience. 

I went back to it because learning patience to diffuse your daily impatience is permanent with consistency. It also increases your intuition, i.e. to know when it's time to set some boundaries and stand up for yourself. Meditation is my anchor, and I am so glad it's part of my daily life.

I strongly recommend you to give it a try; you would not be disappointed.

Give it a try.

With love, joy and trust

Mindset Mentor, Motivational Speaker, Fear Expert and Head of GLCM Wellbeing Europe Communications at HSBC, A Rockstar Mindset

Let’s start with three qualities which define me, shall we? I am an optimist, I’m innovative and I’m energetic. If you’re looking for something unconventional blended with optimism and energy, welcome to the Rockstar Mindset QG. I am a Mindset Mentor, Fear Expert and Motivational Speaker. I’m also a UK Ambassador for Psychologies magazine, a publication which inspires and motivates readers to create a life they love through the online Life Labs platform. After 10 years working in the banking industry, I created my wellness consultancy, A Rockstar Mindset, to help ambitious women entrepreneurs become the rockstar of their life. How? By getting out of overwhelm, overcoming their fears and progressing to the next level in their business. When I became a mum, I strove to be the best mum possible. I did not foresee that my attitude, my pursuit of perfection, would leave me feeling constantly overwhelmed and on the edge of burnout. But it has long been my belief that positivity is a driver for change and leadership, and when I learned about positive psychology and neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to change and adapt), I was hooked. “Positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living.” –- C. Peterson My approach is that there is more than we can see, that it’s fundamental to maintain a critical stance and to be independent of thought. I’ve always been the rebel, the outsider, the one to challenge the status quo and bring new and different perspectives or ideas. My encounter with positive psychology and the neurosciences confirmed for me that my beliefs (that we should think outside the box, focus on the positive) were accurate. I was on the right track! Convinced that there was another way to be successful at work and at home, I delved into the world of neurosciences, positive psychology and metaphysics and created my own system, Do Less, Get More Done – a framework that helps women to be successful with less overwhelm, whilst feeling more present. Positive psychology focuses on strengths instead of weaknesses, building the good in life rather than repairing the bad and reflecting on values and attitudes such as optimism, gratitude, compassion, self-esteem and resilience. The study of these topics came about from a desire to help people flourish and live their best lives. “It is not primarily our physical selves that limit us but rather our mindset about our physical limits.” ― E. Langer It is my conviction that every woman deserves to have a healthy mindset so that she can create a life on her terms. Why? Because we deserve to say stop to the pressure emanating from culture, social media, society. We deserve to be accepted and empowered. Our mind is our ally and must be strengthened as such. Shifting our mindset is vital as well as unlearning, removing the old beliefs holding us back, raising our consciousness and developing our intuition. The world needs us (as women) to positively make a difference to make the life of women, children, and future generations better. It’s time to build a healthy, conscious society based on mutual respect. And I genuinely believe that women have the skills to merge masculine and feminine energy to create something incredible. As for the rest: I love to travel, read books and dance with abandon. I’m married to a marvellous Frenchman and we have a daughter. I am fluent in English and French and I’m an advocate of beauty and women’s empowerment. My philosophy is Forward Thinking Communication and I’m here to help you become the Rockstar of Your Life.
