Who i am and what i stand for
I am a parent, educator, practitioner, mindfulness instructor, friend, psychotherapist
Husband & Father
First and foremost I am a husband and father. I get stressed and tired like most people do. I practice meditation daily to help me be aware and manage all my emotions so I can live a happy life.
I have been in education since 2004 working with students from K-12. My students feed off of my attitude every day. Being present and patient is the key to my success.
Struggling with my emotional well-being because of working 16 hour days, stressed, and mentally overworked, I found mindfulness. Mindfulness is about being aware of your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
Mindfulness Enhances Your Life
Research shows that a regular mindfulness practice has potential to lower your blood pressure, decrease physical pain, and improve sleep. It has also shown to improve your mental health. Mindfulness has been scientifically proven to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression in adults. It can bring us more energy and enthusiasm for life strengthening our relationships. It improves our ability to have compassion and how to feel and show empathy for others, resolve conflicts nonviolently, and maintain positive relationships. In the workplace and the classroom, mindfulness helps us to think creatively, set and achieve positive goals, and overcome obstacles to succeed.
