The importance of Mindfulness

I know that we are getting fatigued by the constant reminder of “Covid-19” dubbed also as the “Coronavirus”, but I felt it was important to the cover the topic on mindfulness. This should always be a practice embedded in our daily lives, but I do think it is more crucial now that we practice it.

I would like to share my personal story. My wife and I both work full time, I with this business and my wife full time in the corporate world. We have two children 4 and under, and thus far have been lucky to have full time care for them through a combination of our parents and daycares. This set up changed for us in an instant and for long stretches we have both been trying to work and watch the children and I am not sure if we are doing either effectively, but we are doing our best.

We know of others that are having a much more difficult time then we are. We have family members that own small businesses and can’t open, we have friends that are furloughed and we have colleagues that are just getting by.

The point of this story is that the virus has impacted us all in different ways, so be mindful of what is going on with your friends, colleagues and family. Check in on them to see if they are in need of help, be ok with the idea that some things may take longer than expected and most importantly do your best to help be the solution with stopping this virus.

Carry this over into your career and it will help you grow both professionally and personally.  As always if you need us we are here to chat https://www.fivestarresume.com/#team
