Stressing in the Age of Accessibility
We live in an age of accessibility. You can reach most anyone any time of day by text, email, instant message, or phone. Multi-tasking is a way of life.
We love to find the next new diet so we can starve ourselves of what we want most, get sick to death of driving our kids around town, and often find ourselves annoyed, distracted and stressed. We set goals and then spend time worrying how to get the next raise, the bigger house, the better car, a more fulfilling relationship, and so on. Life truly doesn’t have to be so hard and happiness should not be quite so rare.
According to Harvard Business Review
The definition of a wellness program is “an organized, employer-sponsored program that is designed to support employees (and, sometimes, their families) as they adopt and sustain behaviors that reduce health risks, improve quality of life, enhance personal effectiveness, and benefit the organization’s bottom line.”
And if you are looking to keep your employees longer, a study by Towers Watson and the National Business Group on Health shows that organizations with highly effective wellness programs report significantly lower voluntary attrition than do those whose programs have low effectiveness (nine percent vs. 15 percent) in their article What’s the Hard Return on Employee Wellness Programs?.

Mindfulness for Sales Professionals
The Present You For Sales Executives
Becoming An Active Listener Through The Practice of Mindfulness
My entire career was spent either in a sales role or working with sales professionals. Mostly categorized at “Type A” personalities, we have the attention span of a gnat, are running from meeting to meeting, and generally have a difficult time focusing in. But ask any successful sales person, people buy when they feel connected to you. The deeper the connection – the stronger the relationship.
The practice of mindfulness will help you focus into the moment, into the conversation with a prospective client. Instead of worrying about what product you are mandated to pitch, or what time your flight takes off, or what email you forgot to respond to – you will be actively listening and participating in this all important opportunity to make a connection.
