Mindfulness: Rose, Thorn, Bud
Mindfulness is an excellent way to manage stress, anxiety and burnout and is a discipline to regain focus, confidence and clarity. Practicing self-reflection, start monitoring your rose, thorn and bud each day as much as possible. Two key times to do this is during transition periods on your way to work and before you go home.
ROSE: A highlight, success or something positive that happened. (gratitude)
THORN: A challenge you experienced or something that is stressful that you could use help and support. (humility)
BUD: A positive opportunity developing or something new that might happen. (growth)
Do this exercise anytime, anywhere...just remember Rose, Thorn and Bud!
