Practicing mindfulness and meditation for remote workers
Remoter met up with Michael Burkhardt, leader of the International Meditation Community in CDMX to talk about practicing mindfulness for remote workers.
Meditation is often phrased for performance and productivity, but there’s more to it than that. It's also about self-discovery.
To cap off our week of topics and discussions in relations to oneself, we’re excited to announce our first video collaboration of the new year with the CMO of Omdena, Michael Burkhardt. He runs the International Meditation Community in Mexico City and has been holding weekly meditation gatherings and even workshops to teach the importance of mindfulness and general benefits meditation can bring to anyone's daily lives.
We initially learned about the International Meditation Community and his work through the Digital Nomads in Mexico City group on Meetup. There, we attended one of his meditation workshops at a local co-working space.
He invited Remoter to check out one of his events, Final 2019 Group Meditation to Set Intention and Purpose in 2020. We even got a chance to sit him down for an interview as well.
Some key takeaways and learnings from our time exploring the benefits of meditation and mindfulness for remote workers:
- Mindfulness is a strong way of being that positively affects your leadership and entire life.
2. Act from peaceful and calm state of mind. Stress levels todays are really toxic and high. Meditation helps put you in that state. For people who lead teams, you should be mindful of that.
3. What are your priorities and what do you want to accomplish? We put things on our plate. Not everything we put on our plate needs to be there. Focus on few things, and do them more consciously.
What are some things you do to practice mindfulness and centre yourself? Do you think you'll be trying out a couple of these tips and tricks?
