How To Use Self-Reflection In Mindful Living
Self-reflection is something that some of us find naturally easy and for others it can be quite alien.
In this podcast I talk about a method of deeply listening when you turn the mirror on your self in a situation, in a conversation or in a decision. If you can self-reflect in the moment then you'll be living a present and mindful life. For most of us, it's about taking a moment after the situation or decision to self-reflect... listening to our thoughts, noticing where in our body the situation or decision manifests and importantly how our heart feels.
Using the basis of cognitive behavioural theory, I'll talk you through how you can easily and enjoyably listen to your head, your heart and your body, to get a true understanding of the impact on you, of your decisions and thoughts.
At the end of the podcast I encourage you to take a moment now and try the technique I describe. It might only take a moment, but the skill should last a lifetime and become a quite profound benefit to leading a mindful life.
Let me know how it goes.

Is Higher Purpose Part of Business Recovery?
As we all emerge from global restrictions, Neil Wilkins and Brendan Llewellyn have a deep-dive conversation into whether the higher purpose of a business is part of the recovery process or if the reality of survival will take precedence.
Neil and Brendan discuss a mindful recovery reset roadmap, part of the Mindful Collective Purpose Workshop programme and agree that growth and rebuilding is as much about optimal execution as it is sitting around a meeting table.
"The time is up for coping, it's time for confident, considered action."

Invest in Yourself
When I lost £10,000 from investing in a business operating in a marketplace I knew relatively little about, I realised that I could have invested in myself.
Had I spent the £10,000 on myself, where would I be today? What would I have learned? What experiences would I have benefitted from?
If we choose to invest in ourselves we open up limitless opportunities for continuous professional and personal development.
In this short webinar recording I will take you through the three elements you can consider (people, budget and time) investing in to begin your Self Investment journey.
What better way to invest, than in yourself.
