My guest today, Janet Fouts, is an expert on taking care of ourselves and others. Janet and I talked about her new book, Micro Dosed Mindfulness (the book isn’t out yet, but soon!), and how we can apply small techniques throughout our day to increase our awareness, lower our stress and increase our productivity.
Unlike many of my guests, Janet and I did not meet on LinkedIn. I was introduced to Janet via a podcast placement agency, and I’m so glad that I’ve had the opportunity to get to know her. Janet is a calm presence, but also a tell it how it is person, which I love.
I want to stress here that when we talk about mindfulness during this show that you don’t need to be a yogi or meditation expert to apply mindfulness. Just taking a breath before taking a phone call or having an important meeting can make a big difference in how that call or presentation goes. And by stacking up these moments of mindfulness, you can have a positive impact on your work and life.
