It's easy to get lost in the blur of what needs to get done when you're running a growing business. You feel constantly pressed for time because at any given moment, there is another call to answer, meeting to attend, or fire to put out.
The overwhelm is real, and many driven founders like you, who are goal-oriented and hell-bent on achieving success, will (in desperation) resort to multitasking and overworking.
It's a highly stressful situation, leading to eventual burnout and possible major health issues.
When you're forever stuck in the hustle, your productivity drops, and it will harm your revenues too.
Thankfully, there is an escape plan from this cycle of hectic work, frantic stress, and mental exhaustion.
Being Mindful can help you create calm so you can be fully present and aware of what is happening at the moment and, of course, how you're feeling. Mindfulness will also empower you to respond to the daily chaos of your work environment positively and effectively so you can continue to grow your business sustainably.
In this episode of Help, My Business is Growing, CEO Sensei and mentor John Fenton, share how practicing mindfulness daily, will make you a more confident and effective leader. He reveals the many benefits of breathing exercises and intentional meditation, including how they can help us center ourselves and rediscover our focus and clarity.
