Awake at Work
- Product Review (submitted on May 23, 2016):
- The most beneficial outcomes of the Awake at Work mindfulness practice is my ability to quiet my mind – to pause when I find I am feeling disconnected, frustrated, and misunderstood. That I can take a big, cleansing breath and take a couple of seconds to ask myself why? Why am I frustrated? Why do I feel upset? What is needed now that can help me with this? The environment at work has been for me, one that does not feel safe for me to be who I am. I am an emotional person. I connect more with folks when there’s a connection about who we are, not just what we do. I’ve also found that if I take the time in meetings to listen more intently with my heart and mind, trying to give others equal representation versus what’s the smart thing to say and do, versus what feels right and called for in this situation. Trust your gut. It knows!
