These are 3 simply powerful, easy to use tools for integrating Mindfulness into your workday. Why not try them out yourself this week to see how it goes? Notice what a difference it makes?

1. Pause and connect with your breathing often.

Between finishing one activity and starting the next is a good habit. Especially, when you feel under pressure or overwhelmed. Moving your full attention to noticing a few breaths reverses the stress cycle. You slow your heart rate, you lower your blood pressure and your levels of cortisol & adrenaline drop. Better still; try a one minute guided meditation practice.

2. Listen mindfully.

In meetings and when communicating with others, really listen and give your full attention… not just to the words but the tone of voice, body language, maybe to what is not being said. Notice your tendency to make judgments and run a commentary and see if you can stay open and curious.

3. Be intentional.

Start the day by planning, prioritising, scheduling of important v urgent activities. Make decisions and optimise the 80 / 20 rule while you are fresh. Manage technology so you are not reacting to it all day. Turn off notifications where you can and plan how best to deal with email, phone, texts.
