For most casino gaming executives, it’s natural to always be on the move. With the global events that have happened so far this year, and the sudden need to limit our in-person interactions, you may feel even more overwhelmed than usual in your personal and professional life. Making the effort to slow down, be present, and breathe can be a helpful start to reducing stress.
Mindfulness is a practice of acknowledging your present thoughts, feelings, and overall surroundings without judgement. Learning and practicing this philosophy can be an effective way to help you get through times of uncertainty and anxiety. The recent pandemic has created many unknowns within the hospitality and casino industries. Whether you are still employed or not, it has probably crossed your mind on what you would do if you find yourself unemployed. Even if you are still employed, you may want to take this time as an opportunity to evaluate your current position and career path. Integrating mindfulness into your process will help you assess your current trajectory.
