307. High-Performance Habits to Be More Present & Less Stressed

Jul 12, 2021 | 0 comments

We all want to be more present and less stressed. We want to feel at peace and have mental clarity so we can be better leaders — at work and at home. But for high achievers, counterbalancing work life and personal life can feel easier said than done.

Jon Macaskill is a retired Navy SEAL-turned mindfulness teacher who learned firsthand how meditation can help you cope with stress, transform your relationships, and get better results. He knows that finding peace and productivity is not about doing everything — it’s about focusing on the small habits that make clarity possible, and sustainable.

Mindfulness is not a skill to be perfected. Rather, it is a practice to keep showing up for. As leaders, you can start small by taking one breath before taking action. Be present, right now.
