Consultant tells Dubai Business Women Council to live in the moment

The Dubai Business Women Council (DBWC) hosted its May Network Majlis on Thursday, featuring Leila Rezaiguia from Kompass Consultancy speaking on "Mindfulness: Discovering the Magic of the Present Moment."

“Mindfulness practice means that we commit fully in each moment to be present, inviting ourselves to interface with this moment in full awareness, with the intention to embody as best we can an orientation of calmness, mindfulness, and equanimity right here and right now," Rezaiguia said.

“We live in a very challenging, fast-paced life, and sometimes it can be very difficult to take a step back, fully comprehend the vast situation you’re in and holistically manage your daily tasks in a way that supports all the elements in your life,” HE Dr. Raja Easa Saleh Al Gurg, president of DBWC, said. “Today, Leila has managed to tackle one of the most important topics that affect our lives as we try to run before we can walk, and as competitive humans, we will always try to win the race, but so often forget to be aware of the present moment and how different elements in your current situation may affect the things around you. By being aware of the now, you can make better decisions that will benefit you over the long run.”

Rezaiguia is a strategic human development professional, a qualified executive, and a career and relationship systems coach based in Dubai.
