What’s Not Working?

Hello, Mindfuls! We’re more than halfway through the year. As we look back on the first six months of the year, we might want to question what’s not working in all areas of our lives. What are you prioritizing? What is getting lost in the shuffle of your daily life? What actually deserves your attention?Continue reading “What’s Not Working?”

Understanding Mindful Practice

Hello, Mindfuls! Mindfulness is part of Buddhism’s noble eightfold path to end suffering. The eightfold path is right understanding (samma ditthi), right thought (samma sankappa), right speech (samma vaca), right action (samma kammanta), right livelihood (samma ajiva), right effort (samma vayama), right mindfulness (samma sati), Right concentration (Samma samadhi). Mindfulness, although important, is not theContinue reading “Understanding Mindful Practice”

Developing a Mindful Leadership Practice

As the oldest of four siblings, I learned that I “must” lead at a young age. I didn’t learn how-to, it was just a requirement. For the first 20 years of my career, my leadership style could best be described as “bossy big sister.” This style lent itself to being forceful, occasionally toxic to me,Continue reading “Developing a Mindful Leadership Practice”

Reflective Journaling as a Practice

Hello, Mindfuls! Getting back into the swing of things after a long time away can be difficult, but also a fresh start. One thing I’ve committed to practicing again is reflective journaling. Reflective journaling helps one see the connections of their work through a critical and analytical lens. The importance of reflective journaling isn’t toContinue reading “Reflective Journaling as a Practice”

Cultivating Silence Within

Hello, Mindfuls! It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post for the page. In my absence of posting, I’ve been living and enjoying the quiet that non-busyness brings. In a world filled with noise, chatter, and constant motion; sitting with myself most oftentimes in silence felt luxurious. During my quiet reflection, I wasContinue reading “Cultivating Silence Within”

Reflections from the pause

Hello, Mindfuls. It’s been a long but much-needed pause. During this time, it was important for me to rest, reassess, and grieve. We’ll soon approach the anniversary of the COVID lockdown in the United States. The last two years have been difficult and surrounded by grief. From the death of family, made family, and lossContinue reading “Reflections from the pause”

A Pause for Us

Hey, Mindfuls!  We’re taking a pause! We’ll take a pause from January 24th until March 6th. During this time, we won’t accept any speaking or writing requests. We’ll slowly respond to emails after March 6th for future events. No new posts or prompts on our social media pages until March 6th as well. We’ll trulyContinue reading “A Pause for Us”

Mindful Collaboration

It would be easy to believe that mindfulness is a singular act that does not extend into how we live and work with others with a focus on mediation. However, as outlined by Jon Kabat-Zinn, the seven key attitudes of mindfulness include non-judgement, patience, beginner’s mind, trust, non-striving, acceptance, and letting go can apply to most aspectsContinue reading “Mindful Collaboration”

Change: Mindful in the Midst

Change is hard, and the only thing constant is change. Sigh. That is where I wanted to start and end this post. Because it just is. Even when it is considered a positive change like my most recent move, it can be highly disruptive to the practical side of life. It can also be disruptiveContinue reading “Change: Mindful in the Midst”

New Year = Healthier Boundaries & More Alignment

Hey, Mindfuls!  Happy New Year! Each new year brings excitement, but we can forget to maintain healthy boundaries and focus on alignment rather than uprooting all our progress in the following year. Of course, this is easier said than done. We’ll all face discomfort when setting boundaries, but as Nedra Tawwab explains, “Your discomfort level around certainContinue reading “New Year = Healthier Boundaries & More Alignment”
