The Power Of The Pause
I recently wrote about the importance of the PAUSE for CEO Magazine – Why taking regular breaks during your day can reboot your mental and physical hard drive to reduce stress and increase productivity.
If you’re not running your body like your business then you’re missing a huge opportunity to operate at your personal best.
That ultimate success requires clear thinking, a sense of calm and the ability to manage stressful situations are vital in leadership.
All this should not come at the cost of your personal health and wellbeing.
A true Fitpreneur understands the role of taking regular breaks during a day to reboot mentally, physically and to create space for making great decisions.
This requires best practice daily – not on vision sheets and motivational statements shared out on corporate communications – blending your health/wellbeing and personal life with your business.
If you’re pushing yourself and not listening to your body – chances are you’re going to get a wake up call you could have certainly avoided.
My suggestion is to use the power of a pause (or what I call the NANO BREAK approach). It’s an incredible gift to be able to ‘log off’ for mini moments throughout the day so you can look after your body, mind and your soul.
How can you start right now to help your body cope with daily mental and physical demands?
1. The posture pause:
2. Put pen to paper – ditch the iPad and digital and write out key points
3. Use 1% of your day – every day – to disconnect

Don’t forget you absolutely have the power to get back in control and feel confident and connected. The point is you need time to do this and a moment out to assess what the real focus should be.
Practise the 1% rule – take at least 14 minutes of your day – disconnect to reconnect.
Enjoy, it’s amazing how small steps can create a giant pathway to even more success.
Yours in Vitality!
