Hey Leaders! Are you breathing? Really breathing? From your diaphragm all the way up? Yes, I know, I bet you haven’t done that in a while.

Conscious breathing or focused breathing is a strategy used by top athletes to increase relaxation, reduce anxiety, and distract the mind from negative thoughts. Great leaders engage in conscious breathing to regulate emotions, manage the pressure that comes with high expectations, and increase clarity where decisiveness is required.

Your breath is a bridge to connect the mind and the body.

Use your breath to bring awareness to the physical, mental, and emotional intelligence you have within you. If you want to change your mindset and your state of being, change your breath. It’s free, available 24/7, and the benefits are immediate.
