How can we be more mindful as parents and less intense as professionals – to respond wisely and purposefully as we go through these times?

This is a timely discussion with my dear friend, leading expert in neuroplasticity, OCD and mindfulness, and co-author of The Wise Advocate – The Inner Voice of Strategic Leadership, Dr Jeffrey M Schwartz.

In this episode we examine effective and practical ways to maintain perspective, clarity of mind and emotional regulation with the pressure of competing priorities.

We talk about the importance of long-term goals and values, setting boundaries and upholding limits. We cover the topics of discipline, depression and anxiety in our children, as well as the influence of technology on developing brains.

Importantly, we explore effective and efficient ways for you to re-centre yourself for greater calm, perspective and resilience, including connecting with your Wise Advocate – the voice of your inner loving guide – that helps us balance and understand our priorities and make good decisions.

Learn from a leading expert in the fields of neuroscience, mindfulness and psychiatry, and author of over 100 scientific publications. Dr Schwartz has been featured globally on prominent TV shows, including Oprah, 20/20, Today Show and Larry King. He was even a consultant to Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio on The Aviator (and appears with them on the bonus DVD extras of that film).

Tune in, open your mind and heart, and be resourced and empowered.
