About Mindful Jugni
I believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s crazy world; your personality, your sense of humor, and most importantly, your heart.
All of these elements brought me to start MINDFUL JUGNI.
Hi! I'm TJ, the mind & soul behind MINDFUL JUGNI
“Jugni” in a literal sense stands for “female firefly”. However, the word jugni has deeper and different meanings in Punjabi folklore. The one that I connect with the most is the “spirit of life”. And if you really want to live your life, it can only be done by practicing “mindfulness”, every day.
Over the last 3 decades, I have gathered all kinds of experience, in my personal and professional life and I couldn't have been more proud of myself.
What started off as a great career in investment banking, I decided to quit the corporate world and settle down, to get married to an army officer, travel the country, and have kids. Isn’t that how all the fairytales end? Well, that's how my fairytale started.
Fast forward to the present day, I have a full-time career as a Mother and HR & Recruitment Manager with an international brand.
From working in a laundry, housekeeping in a hotel, selling insurance policies over the phone, handling accounts in an investment bank, managing content for eCommerce websites, handling a preschool, completing my post-graduation in a foreign land at the age of 32, starting my own cloud kitchen and failing, to starting an education venture and failing, I think I am ready to take on the next phase of my life now. Writing. I dream of becoming a published writer. Mindful Jugni is a step towards that dream.
