We get it. Your day piles up with demands on time and attention faster than you can say “cold call.” Whether you’re heads down prospecting, meeting with your sales team, or simply trying to survive the 100 calls you have scheduled, you’re focusing most of your attention outward.
Yet to borrow from Yesware Founder and meditation crusader Matthew Bellows, “Instead of being swept up in the crazy rush of activities, it’s important to maintain some perspective on the flurry. Not only does meditation help you understand your own mind and what’s preventing you from getting to the next level, it also helps you navigate your relationships with prospects, customers, coworkers, and investors.” In this sense, meditation is good for the body, the mind, and the business.You can’t have laser-like focus unless you know how to center yourself.

Through her business, Resilience for Life, Meyer has delivered stress reduction and wellness workshops for nearly 20 years, at work sites and educational institutions including the National Institutes for Health, IBM and Panasonic.
