I have recently been coaching a couple of people whose issues include being more mindful – that is, being able to destress and unclutter their minds and find a way of “switching off” and relaxing.
This has prompted me to share the resources that I usually offer people who want to explore this area:
There are some great resources on Mindfulness at Work here, including a video that the “guru” did for Google. http://www.forbes.com/sites/drewhansen/2012/10/31/a-guide-to-mindfulness-at-work/
The seminal text is this one by Jon Kabat Zinn, who developed a lot of this stuff, and who is featured in the video in the link above. http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0749915854/?tag=googhydr-21&hvadid=23271325129&hvpos=1t1&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=18265523233887352803&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&hvdev=c&ref=pd_sl_5hikg05bt4
Finally, lots of people find the Headspace app really useful.
I also love this (excuse the “rude” word!)
I’d love to know which of these resources appeals to you, and how you got on!
