Calm Your Mind, Boost Your Happiness, and
Supercharge Your Life!

Hi, I’m Nix

I’m a Coach, Writer, Meditation Teacher, and 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 calm their mind, boost their happiness, and supercharge their life. It’s what I most love doing.  

I’ve been honoured to train at companies including Sky, Amey, and Opencast, speak at corporate events, run private retreats, be featured in magazines, and teach people the skills they can use to combat stress and enjoy their lives on a new level.

My Zendays mission is simple: to inspire you to become a Wellbeing Warrior in your own life, fearlessly protecting your peace of mind and learning how to be happy. 

I live in Tynemouth with my husband, daughter and son and spend my time coaching, speaking, creating powerful meditations, and writing about how to live a happier life.

My Story

Who am I and why have I created My Zendays?

In this video, I share my story and explain my passion and reasons for creating My Zendays.

It is also available on the My Zendays YouTube channel.

The My Zendays Mission

My Zendays is on a mission to inspire and educate people on how daily mindset and meditation practices lead to calmer, happier supercharged lives.

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.

Relax , you’re in safe hands …

Having discovered the powerful impact of meditation and experienced its incredible effect on my own self-mastery, wellbeing, and happiness, I felt inspired and compelled to share this with others.

To do this most effectively, it was important to me to invest in my learning and train as a meditation teacher so that I could study this subject in-depth to serve you better.

My ego desperately wants to point out that I qualified with a Distinction, but that would be unbecoming of a meditation teacher!

Get Involved …

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!
