    Ep. 146 PRACTICE "I am the healer"

    Ep. 146 PRACTICE "I am the healer"

    In Ep. 146 of The Pausecast...

    We go through a meditative breathwork session using the mantra, "I am the healer" along with the breath pattern:

    - Halo Active

    - Bliss Breath

    repeat 3x and then

    2 top holds

    1 bottom hold



    After this practice, I invite you to journal or write down anything that comes up in your mind. Verbal processing sometimes isn't always available when we practice, so journaling can help process and integrate the session for you.



    Enjoy, and don't forget the power of breathwork and its tremendous benefits (see Ep. 141 for the written benefits of breathwork)!

    Ep. 142 How to 10x your downtime as a corporate leader

    Ep. 142 How to 10x your downtime as a corporate leader

    In Ep. 142 of The Pausecast...

    It's all about the 3 steps to 10x your downtime - whether it's this weekend, a summer trip, or time to think.

    Have you ever found yourself anticipating joy and fun for an upcoming holiday trip, only to find yourself pre-occupied with thoughts or issues before jetting off? The entire trip seems like a blur and you realize you are no more rested or refreshed than before you left.

    Despite our best efforts, it is all too easy to feel shortchanged after a holiday, usually because we spend more time planning what to do ("see this", "visit that", "spend time with x") versus little to no planning on the quality of how we want to experience and feel during our time away.

    The good news is that with a few minor tweaks you can set yourself up for a blockbuster holiday by strategizing how and what you plan in three simple steps:

    1.    Create your vision

    2.    Set your intention

    3.    Create your plan



    We dive into this Episode 142 which will translate to...

    - Feeling like time expands

    - Feeling more rested, relaxed and refreshed

    - Ready to re-engage and come out of whatever your next down time is ready for action and feeling like you actually did take a break, rest, or pause.

Pause to learn more about emotional intelligence and leadership

The Pausecast is great! Rachael calls a pause and intentional shift in behavior and that’s exactly what this show is - an opportunity to pause and learn from Rachael and her guests on what I can do differently to create the shifts in life that I want to create.
