The Ultimate Preparation, Clarity of Mind For Your Business Meetings!
Are you among the many business owners or attendees that arrive at an important meeting only to find you feel tired, foggy thoughts unable to focus, or have a monkey mind, racing thoughts of overwhelm for the tasks ahead for the day or week?
You are among the many who feel they could be more prepared although are unsure how!
You can start by taking 7 minutes before the meeting and find a quiet place somewhere, that is if it’s not possible in the meeting room itself. Whether it be in your office, outside in the fresh air or as a last resort in the closest restroom even if someone desperately needs the space you are occupying. So don’t be distracted by the door banging or any unkind words being hurled through the door, it’s a good test of your focus. Seriously all humor aside if its important to you to be in a space of presence and focus of mind you will find it!
The Ultimate Preparation for your business meeting begins with you;
Now that you have found your spot gently close your eyes or have a soft gaze (and what do I mean by a soft gaze, imagine you are hugging a person or pet that you love, feel the release of any tension in your face as it softens and relaxes with that embrace). Be assured when you have done this a few times it becomes second nature and you can go into chaotic surroundings with a clam mind and clarity of intention!
Next connect with, observe or follow the natural flow of the breath, check in with how you are feeling now.
Are you feeling tired or sluggish? If you are sit forward on your chair and take 5-11 slow deep breaths, as you inhale lengthen through the spine and gently raise your chin slightly and on the exhale lower back to center. To intensify add in some arm movements, (if you have the room that is) expanding through the chest raising the arms out to the side on the inhale and lower back to the knees on the exhale. Then gently return to the natural flow of the breath observing the changes in your energy and mind, remaining until comfortable to move.
Or are you feeling the opposite, too much overwhelm or monkey mind? If so and you have the space, sit on the edge of your chair, inhale lengthening through the spine, fold forward gently lowering your chin towards your chest resting your forehead on your arms crossed in front of you utilising a desk or wall to rest on. Now take 5-11 slow deep breaths. Then gently return to the upright position and the normal flow of the breath observing the changes in the mind and energy until your are comfortable to move.
At any time you feel light-headed or uncomfortable simply go back to your normal breath and position and remain seated until you feel comfortable to move.
