Wellness and Resilience with Naz Beheshti

This week I’m joined by Naz Beheshti, the author of the new book, Pause. Breathe. Choose.: Become the CEO of Your Well-Being. Our culture tends to prioritize doing well over being well. But the truth is, we can have both — success and well-being. Through her book and with her clients, Naz shares a method for mastering mindfulness, managing stress, building resilience, and being a leader in our own well-being journey.

In our conversation this week, we discuss:

  • Wellness gaps, burnout and disconnection with self;
  • Mindfulness for learning to self-direct;
  • Practices that strengthen self-awareness and centeredness;
  • Meaning and purpose;
  • Building resilience to bounce forward and thrive.

I loved this conversation and can’t wait to share it with you.
