We live in a demanding world, one that keeps moving and often leaves us feeling as if we are struggling to keep up. This can be compounded by tasks we might avoid or feel less inclined to do such as budgeting and finances.
Try this mindfulness micro-practice from the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute as a way of becoming more present and focused, for yourself and your team.
Use this mindfulness tool before you start a new task, whether you’re alone or with others. You can even try it before you begin a work meeting.
- Pause before you begin a financial activity or task such as budgeting or taxes.
- Take 1 minute (in silence) to focus on breath and breathing.
- Allow the body and mind to settle and focus on what you are about to begin.
