This week on Organic & Authentic we discuss business and mindfulness. Great discussion and feedback by our group. It made me realize that in order to be an effective business owner, I really need to be mindful and present in my business. Mindfulness relates to being aware of the words I create in emails and what I communicate to my colleagues, clients, and social media followers. I'm also very aware of how yoga and meditation has helped me stay centered and focused throughout my business, and sometimes I need to just step away and take a few deep breaths to clear my head (especially after a long day of sitting at the computer and writing). For example, I'm taking time out of my busy Thursday to take a noon lunch yoga class, which really calms and centers me. It's all about taking the time for ourselves, which only makes us more aware and mindfully-present in our businesses.
