As leaders, the contributions you make to the causes and communities you care about can be energizing and fulfilling! Effecting positive change in the world around us is important. We also understand that the work of leadership can be demanding as well. We may find ourselves feeling stuck! Living and leading with integrity isn’t always easy, but it is always possible — especially when we take care of ourselves. One way to accomplish this is through mindfulness.
Earlier this month, we used Day 7 to explore why mindfulness matters. Throughout the day, we shared some mindfulness matters activities with the LeaderShape community. And our community engagement team shared their own mindfulness practices.
Practicing mindfulness can decrease stress, improve concentration, and even boost creativity. And we want this for you!
We have compiled those mindfulness matters activities from Day 7 here for you. Try them out and see which ones help you to connect to the present moment and be compassionate with yourself. Then put mindfulness into practice by continuing that activity and creating a habit that will help support you .
If you have a story of why mindfulness matters to you, please leave a comment below. We’d love to hear more mindfulness matters stories!
