What does mindfulness mean to you?
“To me, it is being able to keep an open mind to any experience that comes my way.”
How do you practise it at work?
“Life is not always sugar and honey. Work can be difficult sometimes, especially when there is a problem. Unfortunately, many times people waste energy getting upset or overly emotional, which I feel can potentially enlarge the problem.
What I usually try and do is to ensure that my primary goal is in finding the solution to correct the issue. I make a conscious effort to try and see the good in a problem, and remember that every obstacle is an opportunity for me to learn and improve.”
WhAT’S YOUR ZEN ROUTINE?
“I start my day with some lively music from my alarm before tackling my morning exercises. Since starting Ohmyhome (an online real estate platform to help locals with their property needs), I realised that I feel physically drained after a long day, despite being desk-bound.
I combat the fatigue with my morning workouts which sets a positive tone for my day. While dressing up for work, I will listen to an audio book or the Bible which inspires me to be a better version of myself each day.
I start mindfulness the night before, by penning down my thoughts at the end of day and running through the plans for the next day. It helps me to get out of bed in time to follow through with my schedule.”
