As we move together through the turbulence of this challenging time, I wanted to reach out and offer some support. It is easy in times like these for our minds to run away from the present moment, perhaps ending up worrying or ruminating in unhelpful ways. Here are a couple of suggestions for ways to focus yourself that may be more helpful.
First, here’s a link to one of our Leadership Landing meditations. It’s a short 15 minutes that can help you settle, be a bit more spacious, and give you a greater ability to relax and focus on whatever is in front of you.
In addition, I’ve compiled a list of suggestions for creating calm in the face of uncertainty that have been helpful to us along the way. I encourage you to pick a few of the suggestions below and lean in. One of your most important jobs as a leader now is to take care of yourself so you can be of service as you lead others.
Start softly and quietly
Connect with others
Engage with what makes you happy and at peace
