This book sheds light on the traps we fall into in a busy working life, and how to avoid them.
Drawing on engaging stories of real life events and typical occurrences in high pressured environments, you will recognize the fixes we all get ourselves into. By delving down to uncover the neuroscience involved in the interplay between our minds and bodies, this book gives you full permission to break the rules and the justification to do things differently.
The purpose of this book is to introduce 7 simple practices of stillness that will transform the way we go about taking action, both in small businesses and in large corporations. The Alpha Pause, The Radical Rest, the Single Breath, amongst others, will become commonly used phrases and practices in your work environment. They will be the 'go to' techniques when you are stuck, exhausted, bored, overwhelmed, frustrated or just plain disconnected with what you are doing.
These practices will integrate easily into your working life and bring you inspiration, joy and release, as well as the clarity, courage and certainty to take effective action. Once you have read this book, you will be able to reconcile the drive to meet deadlines and the need to get things done, with your inner knowing that expresses who you are and how you want to be in the world.

Stillness in Action
The 7 Elements to Success for Leaders
How You Never Ever Stop
A life without stillness is like a paragraph with no punctuation. This book is about putting the punctuation back into your life so that it has meaning.
Waking Up With Google Gratitude
Waking up with a sense of gratitude filling your mind and a conscious breath filling your body changes the rest of your day.
Instant Coffee or Grounded
Instead of rushing into your day, taking 2 minutes to consciously connect to the ground, to the earth, brings a sense of stability and security that lasts throughout the day.
On Your Way to Work
Finding inspiration and setting an intention for the day that is more based on your intuition and your essence than on your list of things to do.
Fitting In and Standing Out
When we bring all of who we are to the workplace, what we do and how we do it becomes more meaningful and creative.
Purposeful Action, Not Distraction
It is very easy to be busy for the sake of busyness. This is about discerning the difference between busy action and purposeful action.
Two Days in One
Taking a break is not slacking. Taking a break (be it at lunchtime, in the evenings, at the weekend or on holiday) is invigorating and transformative.
Coming Home to Self
When we compartmentalize our lives it is easy for them to be in conflict with one another. This is about honouring and reconnecting the different aspects of ourselves.
Where to Next
This looks at the larger scale implications for businesses and the role of reconnecting with the natural elements.
Stillness in Action gives you an open door to more happiness at work and leading successful lives.
- ‘The Fall Experience’: This book shifts the spotlight from your ‘Peak Experience’ to your ‘Fall Experience’ and, more significantly, the Recovery. Our richest experiences and our strengths lie in when we have failed and how we recovered.
- Balance between Yin and Yang: This book explores the paradigm shift that is happening in business and how to integrate the feminine and masculine attributes of leadership. By taking moments of stillness, your actions will be naturally more effective so that you get both the results you want and to feel good about it.
- Nature’s Elements: Each element – earth, air, water, wood, fire, sky and consciousness – has specific, identifiable qualities that inform, support and invigorate our actions. This book will show you how they can serve as a resource of energy and assist you, particularly when things are challenging and you want to instigate and actively direct change.
