We’re teaming up with various organisations to celebrate the amazing mothers in our midst; women who work incredibly hard, in-and-out-of-the office. For the month leading up to Mother’s Day, we have selected some real powerhouse women to give us their favorite piece of advice when it comes to parenting and working.

Shareen Richter, Laughter & Happiness Professor says “My kids teach me everyday! Children are our greatest teachers.”

Shareen 1As adults we have forgotten how to have fun, we don’t allow ourselves to play and unleash the inner child. When was the last time you had a hearty belly laugh or just laughed for no reason at all?

Being a Laughter & Happiness Professor, I help individuals to tap into their happy and de-stress through the use of laughter. Happiness comes from being in the present moment. When one is fully in the present there is no fear or anxiety as we are not recreating a story of the past or imagining an event that may or may not happen in the future.

Shareen 2We live such challenging and frenetic lives, time has become our most precious commodity. Connecting, communicating and engaging with your kids, your spouses, your friends and co-workers has become scarce. You only have to look at families in coffee shops or restaurants as each family member is on an electronic device.

 Since children do what you do and not what you say,  Shareen makes sure that once a week her family sit at dinner together and discuss what has made them happy that week and what they are grateful for.
