No-Fail Friday: Strength finder

Yellpow Rose &Rocks_Andrea Enriquez Cousino_Stocksnap

Everybody’s a leader somewhere. You might be the head honcho in the office, having taken on the responsibility of guiding a team or the whole organization. Even if you’re on the bottom of the ladder at work, you might be a leader in your community, a parent or guardian at home, or the voice of sanity in your family. Maybe you’re leading by example as an aunt or uncle, or you’re the neighbor who’s happy to lend a hand with yardwork or who looks out for the block. This week, we talked a little bit about a big topic: mindfulness and business, and the ways you can identify a mindful leader in your midst. This weekend, your mindfulness challenge is to identify a place in which that leader is you, and to consider how you can put your mindfulness skills to work. It’s a summer Friday, but you’re in luck because mindfulness never needs a day off.  Read More

Monday Moment: One more breath

Emerson Brave quote w tag

Good morning ! A little Monday motivation here in keeping with our theme from last week of managing discomfort (and enabling growth) through mindfulness. Sometimes the difference between a “hero” and someone who doesn’t seem like one is just the willingness to not give up. Every single one of us can be courageous, intrepid, and even heroic, but perhaps not for long enough to make a difference. When you’re facing a challenge that you are ready to run from, as long as you’re not in danger, see what happens when you take one extra breath before doing so. I’m not promising that you will be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but you may be capable of greater strength than you thought.

So take that, Monday. You’ve got this week already, and all you had to do was breathe.
