A year ago on Good Friday, we delivered our TEDx Talk “Defusing Stress With Mindful Mojo.” Time flies! The experience was both exhilarating and nerve-wracking! Since then, we have been delighted at the feedback we have received and hope our message continues to help others. To view our talk, visit: https://bit.ly/2GFSasI
Saddle Up with Courage
Fear arises in everyone. When it does, you might get thrown off your game. You might end up wasting inordinate amounts of time, energy and even money. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Realize most fears never come true. Mindfulness teaches you to lean back out of the fear stories instead of fusing with them. My executive coaching clients who practice courage enjoy great success! The return on investment when you take risks and stretch out of your comfort zone is immense.
Releasing the Past
Regret can sideline forward progress. Replaying the what if’s, the woulda/coulda’s, and the if only’s is simply a waste of time and energy. Mindfulness calls you to forgive past unskillful, unproductive behavior. Being mindful means letting go of the past and making fresh, skillful choices in the present. Today is a new day, now is a new moment!
Brief Pause from Doing
Better results come from a clear mind and a calm body. When both the mind and the body are relaxed, you generally get better results. Insert several, brief, 1-minute pauses throughout your day and notice the effect on your performance!
