EP 61 - The Practice of Mindfulness for Success in Daily Life
There have been many prominent teachers like Deepak Chopra or Eckhart Tolle and others who teach us about the power of mindfulness and why it’s so important to incorporate it into our daily practice. It has many proven benefits from reducing anxiety, depression and chronic pain to improving sleep and reducing stress.
But it’s not something that comes naturally for us especially with the many distractions that take our attention and focus elsewhere. This is also true for our children.
In this episode, Shaista is joined by guest Rahima Khoja. Together, they discuss the benefits of mindfulness for children, how to incorporate mindfulness as a family and give scientific evidence as to how mindfulness can help us succeed in our daily life.
Be sure to listen for :
- Why mindfulness is a super power
- What happens in our brains when we practice mindfulness
- How mindfulness affects our emotions and reactions
- How mindfulness can help our kids both socially and academically
- Specific strategies on how to incorporate mindfulness at home
About our guest
To inform, inspire, and ignite is Rahima’s goal as she explores the realm of mindset growth with her students. Shortly after her graduation from the University of Calgary, Rahima relocated to South Africa, where her remarkable journey in the field of education began. Her post graduate studies in Early Childhood Development led her to further develop her ardent passion for children and education. Her international teaching experience led her to teach children from diverse backgrounds and cultures. With a strong foundation of over 15 years of teaching experience, Rahima’s desire to extend and educate beyond traditional teaching methods and subjects led her to completing her certification as a Wisdom Coach. Now residing in Calgary, Alberta, Rahima continues to work as an educator, while also focusing upon helping children to develop a growth mindset of positivity, success, and confidence. Rahima strives to lead our children to be humans of integrity, compassion, and strength, thereby developing their full potential.
