It’s crazy to think that the holidays are right around the corner. It feels like it was only last week I was thankful to have made it through 2020 and ready to start a new year. 

Now I’m planning to spend the weekend wrestling Christmas decorations down from the attic.

And I’m not saying that in my best “Grinch” voice! I’m saying it as someone who is genuinely a little freaked out by how fast time seems to keep moving. And in a way, I’m thankful the holidays are here because they give so many of us a chance to finally slow down, at least on the work-front…

That’s why I was so thankful to get to have a conversation with someone who specializes in making the most of downtime. 

Dennis Buttimer is a stress and mindfulness expert, executive coach, TEDx speaker, corporate trainer and the author of two books, “CALM: Choosing To Live Mindfully”, and his most recent work “Inspired: 365 Days of Mindful Mojo.” He also is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post

He served nearly three decades as the manager of the Employee Assistance Program for the city of Atlanta’s rapid transit authority before becoming a corporate consultant and life-coach. In 2007 he began working side by side with Cancer patients at the Chapman Cancer Wellness center, and now, with his partner, Angela, Dennis runs the Atlanta Center for Mindfulness and Well-Being, which is a resource and retreat center for those looking to embrace the silence and discover themselves.

Dennis and I discuss ways to practice mindfulness, the need for leaders to need to address their own issues before being able to help others, and how we can move more gracefully through loss. 

It was a wonderful conversation that I think is perfect as we enter this season of reflection. 

Enjoy the show.
