Want More Capacity and Creativity?

Have you ever wanted to have your own personal assistant? Someone like an on-demand coach, a trusty plumber, mechanic or a personal driver so you can take a breath in between keeping all of your plates spinning? Well, just in time to support you in this New Year, we would like to introduce our DVU micro-videos, the first one being about Mindfulness. The video provides you with an introduction and reminder about mindfulness, along with some practices you can bring into your day, beyond your daily commitments. The best part is you can take it with you and share it with your friends and family – after all, it’s our commitment to send ripples beyond the Village.

We have created a short 5 minute video which allows you to explore this important topic, whether you are hoping to establish more intentional breaks in your day, expand your awareness or end your day in a grateful or relaxed state. So, we invite you to have fun with this video – share it with your team, and if you are so inspired, find a way to try on a new practice over the next few days. The cool thing is: these practices will only require 2-3 minutes of your entire day – not bad for creating more capacity or increasing your effectiveness.

This video is designed to be a starter kit, and if it peaks your interest and you would like to try more activities, please check out our accompanying pdf to dig a bit deeper into the world of Mindfulness.

The video can be launched in Star Learning and we also have an external link that you can share with your friends and family!
