Description

“Science has validated the power of breathing and mindfulness to enhance our well-being. Sandy Abrams' advice is a simple but incredibly effective way to make mindfulness a part of your life and help you thrive in our always-on world." --Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global

Technology has revolutionized the business sector. Whether you're an entrepreneur, employee, CEO, or executive, you're likely feeling the effects of less humanity and more technology. Our minds are distracted, our attention spans are shortened, we want everything on demand, in boxes are never empty, our energy is frequently negative, we're addicted to social media, and we're sleep deprived. This cannot be the new normal. Breath is the antidote!

Breathe to Succeed shares the transformative power of breath in business. Even just three deep breaths at key moments can be nothing short of miraculous. With Abrams's fast, simple, and effective breathing techniques, you'll become more mindful and engaged and experience better moods, a calmer perspective, and positive energy that will translate to next-level productivity, creativity, and clarity. Breathe to Succeed will teach you how to:

  • Utilize a variety of simple breath techniques to access your optimal energy and manage your emotions in the moment.
  • Become self-aware of your negative thought patterns/behavior and rewire your brain with positive new habits.
  • Activate the power of your mind to breathe through challenges, make better decisions, and reach goals effortlessly.
