A Habit For Less Stress 🌱




Definition: Focusing one's awareness on the present moment.

Imagine starting every day with a sense of calm.

Rather than a million thoughts rushing through your head, progressively stressing you out.


Meditation strengthens your awareness and control over your cognitive processes.

This enhances neural pathways involved in attention and emotional regulation, which are crucial in high-stress environments.


Studies show that meditation can lead to significant decreases in stress and improvements in concentration and creativity.

Research also highlights how mindfulness can reduce the emotional exhaustion that leads to burnout.


Why habits? Your time is valuable and limited; you don’t need more complex systems. My goal is to provide you with simple, effective tools to support your physical and mental well-being and make you more efficient and conserve mental energy. (read more)

Step 1: Set a regular time to be completely present with your thoughts.

Step 2: Start short with 5 minutes, focusing on your breathing and letting your thoughts come and go.


In every edition of Creatures of Habit, I feature a product to help you implement this week’s habit.

There are many great mediation apps such as Calm or Headspace.

I’ve been using Headspace everyday for over 5 years.


Try setting aside a few minutes in the morning or evening to meditate.
