My mornings used to be like a space shuttle launch: 3-2-1... woosh! I'd jump out of bed, check email before heading into the shower, respond to email while drying my hair and eat breakfast on the way to my first appointment. I had so much to do that I couldn't imagine wasting even one second. Little did I know that "full speed ahead" was actually costing me efficiency and productivity.
Over the last few years I have learned about mindfulness and added to my knowledge of brain health. Knowing more in these two areas has helped me slow down and, in essence, accomplish more.
