Rewarding mental gymnastics for CEO's: looking in the mirror

Looking in the mirror as a CEO, manager or entrepreneur appears to be a very rewarding form of mental gymnastics! 💪

Many thanks to Steven Laureys & Ambits for this inspiring webinar on the role of self-awareness and mindfulness meditation for good leadership. 🏹



Interesting also is that successful entrepreneurs seem to share a core element, which is cognitive flexibility and adaption to change. These are areas that are more developed in people that meditate. 🧘‍♀️



Furthermore, many scientific studies show that the effect of meditation can be as big as the effect of medication. Plus, it has also shown its positive impact on people vulnerable to dementia. ✅



👉One of Steven's favorite exercises that he shared? Focus on your breath, then focus on your exhale, making it a bit longer. And as such, activating your relaxation response in your nervous system.

And remember: Mindfulness is not fluffy! It's very tangible and clear in its results but also in its tools and exercises. 🚀 After all, you can’t pour from an empty cup :-)


I walk the talk and practice various formal and casual forms of mindfulness meditation on a, pretty much, daily base.
