Summary

Pause is an important message ready to be heard.

We check our phones an average of 221 times a day; we have apps that help us sleep and remind us to be mindful while we secretly measure our success in 'likes'. Time is our luxury, and yet with technology we are never able to leave the office, even when we aren't there. The fear of missing out makes us rush from one thing to the next, not really taking any of it in.

Pause allows you to finally put yourself, your feelings and your intuition first. Learning to say no, doing the things that make you feel good, and not doing the things that don't make you feel good - these are not self-indulgent, listening to your own heart and wisdom doesn't make you selfish and slowing down to appreciate your life isn't lazy or unambitious. It is an ancient message but still just as strong: when you pause to take care of yourself and your own life, you become the person you're meant to be.

This book gives you the space and the practices so that you can learn how to benefit from the power of the pause. It uses nature, creativity and your inner spirit to allow the energy to flow freely once again. There are exercises to ground you, to give access to your intuition, to help you breathe deeply and allow your monkey mind to settle. It gives you time to explore what is big in your life right now, to know deep down what matters. It opens you up, allowing you to freely experience all the pain, the joy and the twists and turns of life. It gives you back your courage, your fire and your connection.

Danielle Marchant has a long work history as a successful executive coach in the corporate industry, working with top-level executives at companies such as HSBC, McKinsey Unilever and SAP. She has more than 13 years' experience working with leaders in 20 different countries and spent three years living and working in Asia, where she set up a pioneering coaching company and an award-winning change management consultancy.

After learning that goals and ambitions could be just as happily and successfully achieved when simply allowing the body and mind to pause, she adapted her coaching style with both personal and corporate clients to flow with rather than fight against the ups and downs of life.

Do not buy the audio....

...it will put you off the book content. I started it on Kindle and decided to buy the option. MISTAKE. Tedious to listen to it has made reading a struggle and I nearly gave up. Content is practical and Amazon reviews are much more positive. So just buy the Kindle version and don't buy the audible one ! Sorry, but writers should not read their own material unless they know what they are doing.
