This isn’t a particularly novel message, but it’s one I’m sure a few of you can relate to:
It’s been a pretty tough year or so.
And by that I mean, not just the reality of things, but how our minds have processed it. Many of us have felt job related stress and feelings of social isolation in ways and to a degree we’d never experienced before.
Being a business owner has its perks, but also has created plenty of challenging situations. While I thought I was pretty well-equipped to handle them, this past year felt like it was just one thing after the other.
I felt a level of stress and anxiety creeping that I was entirely unprepared for – to the point where even little issues seemed it a huge deal.
For me a big part of the solution was picking up some mindfulness tools and a daily meditation practice. I especially got a lot out of Emily Fletcher’s Stress Less, Accomplish More.
After reading it, I kept telling myself I should really talk with Ellie about this stuff.
Ellie is a member, a Life Coach and Meditation Teacher. I first met her years before she was a member when we had her to the gym to teach yoga. She puts out so much great information through her instagram, website, and patreon.
So, talk with her I did! The result is this week’s video – she gives a few tools for daily mindfulness practice (specifically to help with anxiety and stress). And we have a great series coming up these next few weeks on goal setting!
