Performance - the execution of an action, a thing done


Mindful Performance - 
When we combine present moment awareness with our daily actions, we are experiencing mindful performance

These actions can be big or small, related to an actual event or not. You don’t have to be a professional athlete to be a performer. Maybe you are a managing one person or hundreds of people, you are a self-starter, a police officer, a fire fighter, a chef in a high-stress kitchen, work with clients 1:1, or you are a mom or a dad…at the end of the day we all have to perform in our daily live.

It is important to note the intention is to not “push away” or mute your thoughts or emotions, but to develop present moment awareness so you know what’s going on in your mind and can better manage your thoughts and emotions. When you are able to do this — and it takes deliberate practice — you are able to unlock hidden potential and perform at your peak!
