I’m excited to bring you the first episode of the Just Start Now Book Club podcast season.

Each episode in this series will be focusing on a chapter in my new book, Just Start Now – Unlock your entrepreneur mindset to grow your wellness business.

To get the most from the season, buy your copy now and read along with us!

Today I’m talking to meditation teacher Laura Farrington, who runs an online meditation studio and is the co-founder of Umbrella Wellness, which provides wellness activities for corporate businesses.

We discuss how meditation helps to build awareness of your thoughts (not try and clear them!), and how it can help us to be better business owners by shifting our mindset. A topic I discuss in the opening chapter of my book.

Some of the things we talked about when it comes to changing your mindset through meditation:

  • What meditation actually is – Laura busts some myths around what people think it is or ‘should’ be.
  • How meditation can help you on a personal level as well as in your business.
  • How using box breathing for just 5 minutes per day can help you to get started – and why it’s a great technique to share with your clients.
  • Using affirmations to help shift from a negative to a more positive mindset – I also talk about this in the book!
