As a Psychology graduate, former Primary School Teacher and a Nursery Manager with a family background of over 30 years’ experience in Early Years education, Nima noticed there was a lack of mindfulness being taught within the school curriculum. She quickly recognised there was not enough emphasis placed on children’s mental health, which she believes is fundamental in nurturing their emotional well-being.
Through her own personal challenges and having lost her Father very suddenly, Nima suffered from high levels of anxiety, which took a toll on her overall mental health. She realised the importance of dealing with emotions healthily to feel happy inwardly. She began to express her emotions through journaling and blog writing (@By.Nima – Instagram) to help and support others, and found the process deeply healing.
The Birth of Mindful Champs
Through daily mindfulness practices, especially gratitude and self-love, she has been able to face her challenges in a more conscious way. Nima also regularly attends Mindfulness workshops to continually expand her knowledge in this area. She has recently completed the ‘Conscious Parenting Mastery’ course developed by the world-famous Parenting Coach, Doctor Shefali.
Combining her two passions in life, mindfulness and teaching, she has passionately created the ‘Mindful Champs’ brand with a mission to bring Mindfulness into the lives of children. Living in a society in which individuals place their self-worth on external markers, mental health issues are at an all-time high.
Laying a Strong Foundation for Children to Build on
By practicing Mindfulness with children from an early age, Nima believes it can promote a range of benefits, from self-love to emotional regulation – all of which are necessary tools that can be used as blueprints to carry children into their adult years. Nima strongly believes that these concepts should be taught at an early age to really instil an empowered sense of self into young children – after all, they are the leaders of tomorrow.
In today’s rush, we all think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just being.

Benefits of Mindfulness for Children
With approximately 60,000 thoughts entering our minds daily (yes, daily!), being mindful allows us to ground ourselves and be fully present in the moment so that we do not become overly overwhelmed with what’s going on around us.
If children are given fundamental Mindful tools and practices at an early age, it can be profoundly beneficial for their mental health and overall well-being.
