Sharon Freedman has been a professional actor and voiceover artist for the past 15 years. About 5 years ago she was feeling a bit frustrated because she wanted to figure out how to be more of service. She studied at The Coaches Training Institute and learned tools to help people bust through their BS and get moving in a positive direction. Visit her website, Stress Reduction, Joy Production here.
What To Do If You Have A Case Of The Blahs...
One of the many things that actors love about their lifestyle is how exciting it is that every day can look different. That being said, actors are no strangers to being crazy busy and running between auditions, classes, bookings, workshops, extra-income jobs, while still maintaining a social life. Wouldn’t it be freakin’ awesome to actually enjoy the journey and to not be always focused on what’s next in your schedule? That’s where the tool of mindfulness comes in to play. I’m not talking about anything airy-fairy; in fact, it’s just the opposite. Mindfulness is about getting present in the moment so you can feel like a productive rock star as you achieve your goals. I’ve broken down this tool of mindfulness into three easy to understand and incorporate parts: OBSERVE, DESCRIBE, and PARTICIPATE. Over the next couple of months I’ll be diving deeper into each part and will give you some exercises and skills to start implementing right away. Until then I encourage you to practice taking some moments to stop and smell the roses. You might be surprised by how rich and fulfilling you life is right now and that your happiness doesn’t need to rely on what’s coming down the pipeline.
