Kara Vaina, mother of two young boys and lover of all things chocolate is the founder of My Mindful Year. After struggling emotionally with a challenging toddler she implemented mindfulness into her life….and what a difference its made. Better connections with her family, being present in the moment, grateful for life and calmer in her approach. Through implementing mindfulness into Kara’s life, she began collecting notes, quotes, reminders and tips to keep her on track with her mindfulness every day and found the need to keep it in a diary.  Hence she created My Mindful Year, a pliary (a Planner and Diary all in one) that is a life bible. Its more than just a planner or diary because its full of goal setting, tips, inspiration, motivation, wellness info, mindfulness colouring and much more.
