I’ll be the first to admit, I have a hard time slowing down.   My mind races from one task to the next.   A lot of times I think about controlling my mind, or pushing thoughts out of my head.  But what if be-friending your mind leads to peace, focus and less stress?  On this episode of the Pivotal Focus Podcast, I interview Othon Costa.  We talk about acknowledging your thoughts and accepting them.  We talk about getting started with meditation and how you can be more present during your day.  Hope you enjoy the podcast!
