The dawn of a new solstice is the perfect time to review and resolve. Can we reduce stress in ourlives? Can we better face challenges so they don't eat away at us?
PSFK is a think tank that offers insights into all aspects of life. Back in 2015 they invited Sasha Lewis, the founder of Flavorpill to talk about The ROI of Finding Presence. This message is as timely today as it was back then.
In his talk, Lewis asks the audience to think about what being more present looks like in their every day, whether that outlet be meditation, yoga, running or spin class. Whatever it looks like, we need to make the conscious decision to step away from the screen and slow down. As the founder of a major media company, Lewis encourages his employees to exercise these habits with daily digital detoxes.
At Flavorpill, teams participate in group meditations or exercise mid-afternoon: “We basically get out of our heads and away from our screens—and get into our bodies. We’re immediately struck by how much energy we have, or how calmed or focused we are following that.”
Mindful business practices stem beyond the media industry, as seen in the instance of sports teams, hollywood celebrities and global CEOs who meditate. Lewis highlights the uptake of tech-related meditation apps and mindful gatherings that demonstrate people “seeking out experiences where mindfulness and presence are at the core.”
