Breathe, Empower, Achieve
by Shonda Moralis MSW LCSW
Take five for mindfulness: Say no to burnout, and yes to balance!
For so many women, “work–life balance” is a myth. And when you’re already juggling a career, personal life, and family—plus your side projects, a smidgen of self-care, and the occasional need to sleep—“mindfulness” can sound like just another thing to do.
But if you take five minutes for mindfulness now and then, it may not only save your sanity—but also springboard your success. Let psychotherapist Shonda Moralis coach you through fifty “mindful breaks” ingeniously tied to your hectic schedule:
- Breathe mindful breaks promote calm and awareness through meditation, starting with “Coffee” (page 39)
- Empower mindful breaks bolster your self-confidence—say, to “Unmute Yourself” during a meeting (page 149)
- Achieve mindful breaks help you set and conquer goals . . . for example, by asking: “Why Not Me?” (page 240)
If you think you don’t have time for mindfulness, this book is definitely for you.
