A different way to live …

Hi, I’m Nicky

Coach & Founder of My Zendays

Nicky (I am Zendays)

Since the beginning of 2018, I’ve been making it my business to teach people how to relax, how to harness the power of their mind, and how to connect to what happiness means to them and build a life around it. It’s what I most love doing.  

I absolutely love training at both large and small corporations, speaking at corporate events, running retreats, being featured in magazines and podcasts, so I can teach people the skills they need to combat stress and enjoy their lives on a whole new level.

My Zendays mission is simple: to inspire and equip you to become a happier human. 

I live in Tynemouth with my husband, 2 children and dogs and spend my time coaching, walking on the beach and teaching meditation, mindfulness and mindset practices to help you live a happier life.

The My Zendays Mission Is Simple

To inspire and equip you to be a happier human. 

The World Health Organisation has declared stress a “World Wide Epidemic”, and there is no doubt that our lives are getting busier and more stressful. Three-quarters of people in the UK have felt so stressed that they can’t cope. Stress is officially messing up our sleep, our relationships, our work, and even our sex lives.

We know meditation is part of the solution — it’s the most powerful stress-relieving tool available to us by natural means and there is a vast amount of scientific research showing that it’s the single best thing you can do for your overall health.

Some of the benefits are:

Less stress

More energy

Less anxiety

More productivity

Better sex

Better sleep

And so, through this website, the services provided by My Zendays, and across our social media channels, the aim is to  …

Share the Science

The many benefits of meditation are scientifically-proven and available to everyone through a simple daily practice.  

To inspire you, I want to change the perceptions of meditation and provide the intellectual understanding of the practice — what it is, how it works, the benefits, and the science that proves the case — so you can put aside any fears or doubts and trust in the process.

Debunk the myths

There are quite a few myths that need debunking so that we all understand that meditation is a simple, accessible, enjoyable, everyday practice where you can quickly and easily get into the swing of things.

No need for orange robes or mountain top temples, and not a joss-stick in sight!  It is easy to gain the benefits for yourself and get on the way to living a calmer, happier, and more fulfilled life.

Spread the joy

It’s time to learn a really important new skill — how to consciously relax.  Meditation is a basic life-skill that we should be practising every day ourselves, and teaching our children too.

This is for everyone, so start where you are, no matter what your background, religion, gender, or age.  Use the time you have, and experience for yourself that a minute spent in meditation is always a minute well spent.

It’s great to have you here …

You can also get your daily dose of My Zendays on Social Media, where you will find lots of tips, support and advice.  It is also a great place for you to get involved in the conversation with other #ZENSEEKERS — hope to see you there soon!
