The Mind Marvels Story So FarDecember 29, 2022
Karen here, founder and director of Mind Marvels. I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce who you would be working with if you joined me on the Mind Marvels journey.
So, I always knew that I wanted to work with children. I loved the idea of helping them learn and grow. So, when I graduated from university, I became a teacher. And for a while, it was great. I loved watching my pupils learn and succeed. But quite quickly, I realised that teaching wasn’t the right path for me. It was too structured and too restrictive. I felt like I was stifling my creativity and didn’t have the space to work with young people in ways that supported their wellbeing.
So, I left teaching and started my own business. And I’ve never been happier. Now, I get to use my creativity to help others and make a difference in the world. And that’s what truly fulfilling to me. Becoming a business owner has allowed me to take control of my own career, finances, and work-life balance and put all my focus into the things I am most passionate about.
As someone who is passionate about wellbeing, I obviously support the importance of looking after your own wellbeing too. After all, how can you promote something that you don’t believe in?
I enjoy staying active as it makes me feel confident and supports my mental health. I also love to travel as it allows me to see the world from different perspectives.
However, I also understand the importance of taking time to recharge your batteries. Reading and watching TV helps me to do this and I also enjoy little things that help me feel relaxed like always having flowers around my home.
Of course, I also use the calming strategies that I teach to young people in my sessions to support my own wellbeing. They really are tried and tested!
If you’re anything like me, then you’re maybe on the lookout for a new adventure. And what could be more exciting than promoting positive wellbeing for future generations? That’s why I invite you to join me on the Mind Marvels journey.
Together, we can help to create a brighter future for everyone. We’ll have the opportunity to learn from each other, grow together, and make a real difference in the world.
