Mindful Breaks: Day One
Welcome to Mindful Breaks!
I am delighted to be with you for this mindfulness journey.
Today’s world asks us to juggle high pressure situations at work, complex family needs and community responsibilities. It can feel overwhelming and we often learn to cope by going on autopilot. We go through the motions but rarely bring our best selves to anything. This living on autopilot affects our ability to be creative, to make the best decisions, to communicate well, to connect deeply with family, and even to get a good night’s sleep.
In this course, you will learn simple, universal trainings that I call Purposeful Pauses. These mini trainings of your mind will teach you to interrupt the autopilot and tap into your innate ability to be present and to listen to your own wisdom. Simply choose a time each day when you will listen to that day’s audio recording and explore a new practice. Be curious and open as you begin to experience for yourself the power of taking a Purposeful Pause.
You are also welcome to look at the vast array of resources available to you on the Institute’s website. https://instituteformindfulleadership.org/ There you will find tips, videos, essays and descriptions of retreats and workshops. When you are ready to learn more, or bring this training in full to your organization, we are happy to speak with you about the many options available.
If you have any questions, let me know. Enjoy!
