• How I changed my wellbeing

    I decided to make a change in my own wellbeing, while I was on a trip in Italy in 2012 and in between jobs. If you had asked me 6 years ago what wellbeing looked like, I would have described an image of a confident woman or man, who looked well-built and active, with a big smile on her or his face at all time.  And, that was an image many New Yorkers, including myself, were chasing.  Fast-forward to today, if you ask me the same question regarding wellbeing, I would certainly describe a woman or man, regardless her or his body shape and size, who feels comfortable, healthy, and…

  • Learn about Ourselves

    Get to Know Ourselves and Our Minds I just finished 2.5 weeks of leadership trainings in the US.  To many, an opportunity of being at GE’s Crotonville Leadership Training Center is incredibly rewarding.  To me, the experience is a great moment to get to know myself at a deeper level, and prioritize what is truly important in life. Each of participants at the training had detailed analysis of Emergenetics, a measurable analysis that combines human behavior and thinking patterns.  Instead of changing our weaker behavior traits, we should be more aware of our dominant behaviors and mindful of our thinking patterns impacting our interactions with others. My Emergenetics results are somehow a surprise…

  • Turning 38 … #ShareTheJoy

    I turned 38 this October.  Being in my late 30’s is exciting to me, but yet anxious (2 more years and counting, pushing for 40’s).  I am thankful and grateful for so many things in my life, including my loved ones and friends.  However, as a human being, I often look at things I haven’t accomplished yet, personally and professionally. For my 38th birthday, my husband and I went to India for the first time, and stayed at a remote yoga and meditation eco-resort in Kerala, India. Reconnecting our souls to our minds and bodies, I enjoyed the daily discipline – 4 hours of yoga, meditation, and vegetarian meals.  Every day at…

  • Energy Meditation 5 Simple Steps

    I am often asked by people about finding time to meditate.  To be frank, it isn’t easy for me, as I travel weekly for work. I meditate at home, at hotels, in cars, in taxi and also in airplanes.  Meditating on-to-go may not be ideal to many, but to me, any minute of deep breathing helps clear my mind and brings a sense of peace to my soul. This past Ramadan, I taught Energy Meditation at work.  Basically, 1 energy chakra meditation each day, from the root to the crown.  And, at the end of 7 days, those who attended the sessions felt differences in their bodies and minds – calm,…

  • The Gap in Meditation … am I doing it right?

    When in meditation, there is a moment called “the gap.” This place outside of space and time is a flash of stillness and silence. It can be a goal for some meditators but if you haven’t had this experience, it can leave you feeling frustrated and asking the question “am I doing this right?” But when looked at from a different perspective, every meditation can be the perfect experience with an opportunity for deeper inner connection. In Davidji’s Hay House 3rd video on meditation, he talks about 3 signs of meditation, and the most important one is, “Just show up”.  If you are showing up to meditation, you are doing…

  • Meditation, Positivity, Relationship

    Today science is finally proving what many people have believed for thousands of years. Meditation has been proven by the power of your breath to lessen worry, anxiety and impulsivity.  It increases optimism, relaxation and awareness. Creating stillness in your daily life even helps develop positive social connections.  It enhances how we communicate and connect with other people and by turning to your personal quiet, you can improve and deepen your current relationships. In davidji’s 2nd Hay House video,  he explores the impact of meditation on relationships and gives examples of how in even the most painful of situations, meditation and presence will fill your heart with peace.  Davidji discusses…
