This interview took place about 4 weeks ago from the date of this entry and I’ve worked daily to incorporate Mindfulness into my own life. The seeds of success are already sprouting. In moments of stressful decision-making, I’ve taken the opportunity to breathe and not react as quickly as I might have in the past and that’s been a really good thing! A daily dose of 10 minutes has given me a fresher perspective and a newfound calmness. And I suspect I’m only just scratching the surface of the many benefits yet to come!
