PAUSE. BREATHE. CHOOSE
Become the CEO of Your Well-Being
CEO, executive wellness coach, and thought leader Naz Beheshti’s first job was as Steve Jobs’s executive assistant at Apple and he quickly became her first and most influential mentor. Not only did he teach her to how to live and lead in alignment with her head and heart, he also taught her, through his words and example, that well-being is the ultimate wealth.
“When we integrate every aspect of our life and fuel that ecosystem as a whole, we can both be well and do well.” writes Naz.
Pause. Breathe. Choose. offers the highly effective framework that Naz has been teaching her clients for over a decade. It’s called the MAP Method and the book is organized around its three guiding principles:
In part 1, “Master Mindfulness: The Big M,” readers learn how to discover their authentic Selves. Naz explores a simple and powerful method for practicing mindfulness and the value of choosing to be mindful both in stillness and in action.
In part 2, “Apply Better Choices to Manage Stress and Build Resilience,” she explores the Seven As, which are:
Adopt a healthy lifestyle; Allocate play and recovery time; A void unnecessary stress; Alter the situation; Adapt to the stressor; Accept what you cannot change; and Attend to connection with self, others, world, and universe.
In part 3, “Promote Your Self to the CEO of Your Well-Being,” Naz explains the Three Ps: pain, prana, and purpose. She explores how readers can make pain their greatest teacher for growth, how to use prana to become fully engaged at work and in life, and how to be driven by their passion and purpose.
“This book focuses on practicing mindful leadership and taking empowered and aligned action as a personal and professional strategy,” writes Naz. “I encourage you to make active, healthier lifestyle choices to fulfill your highest potential in all areas of your life which contributes to making our world a better place.”
