This 2times per day practice is designed to help you reach your highest performance levels at work, at home, or on the field.

In this episode:

“If you’re going to invest 10-15 minutes of your day, of your most valuable resource, which is your time, you want to make sure you’re getting a return on that investment.”

“Mindfulness is the art of bringing your awareness into the present moment.”

“I don’t think that nature intended for us to be sick, tired, and stressed all the time; I think that stress is trying to leave the building.”

“That is the definition of stress: the space between where you are and where you should be.”

“Stress is making us slow, it’s making us sick.”
