A client reached out for advice on how to find time to meditate as he had lost his rhythm in the fast-pace of his work life. "I can't slow down, I'm running around at 75 mph, and I am at a loss for how to get back into my meditation practice."
A Day in the Life of an Executive
Imagine a work schedule that is booked out two weeks in advance, where the whole day from 8 AM - 5 PM is scheduled with 15-18, and sometimes more, meetings and events. If the scenario sounds familiar, you are not alone. Upper management spends over 50% of their day in meetings, which leaves less than half a day for client calls, strategy sessions, lunch. Well, you get the picture.
In coaching my client, I suggested he use the time in between meetings and appointments to reconnect with the breath.These transitional moments, whether you take one or two, help you to refocus your attention with a deep inhale and a slow exhale. This alone can calm the mind and make room to ground yourself and reset the day.
Go on give it a try; I'll time you.
Yours on the journey,
