"Do Breathe by Michael Townsend Williams is part of a range of Smart Working books we offer at Misc. We totally agree with The Do Book Company mission: getting people to Do more. A simple mind shift, a shot of inspiration to help you get started or a new skill or craft, these kinds of doing are at the core of their inspirational pocket guidebooks.
When you get the right balance in life you can do amazing things: create, perform, lead a team, build a great company, raise a family. But so often the scales tip and we feel overwhelmed and stressed.
Michael Townsend Williams, an adman turned yoga teacher and mindfulness coach, is an advocate of ‘welldoing’ – leading a busy and productive life, but not at the expense of our health and wellbeing. And key to this? Our breath.
The crucial link between mind and body, our breath reflects what we’re dealing with at any given moment. It tells us when we’re out of our depth.
With simple breathing exercises and elements from yoga, meditation and mindfulness, Do Breathe by Michael Townsend Williams will help you to:
Reduce stress and increase productivity
Improve focus and work flow
Cultivate new good habits and drop the bad
Build courage and resilience
Why not breathe yourself better?
From a life of ‘doing’ in the world of advertising to a life of ‘being’ as a yoga and mindfulness teacher, Michael Townsend Williams now works on the integration of both. His business, Stillworks, coaches individuals, teams and organisations on Mindful Productivity and Mindfulness. He is also co-creator of the iPhone app Breathe Sync™, which brings your breathing into sync with your heart to reduce stress and improve focus. He believes the world needs to calm down and we would all get a lot more done if we did."
