Mindful Fitness with Marc Champagne

Mindful Entrepreneur and co-founder of mindful writing app KYŌ, Marc Champagne, shares his perspectives on mindfulness at work, single-tasking and what he refers to as 'Mental Fitness'. I ask Marc about his views on the use of a phone and apps to stay mindful, how to minimize distractions and interruptions to a mindful practice. Together we explore how mindful writing can create a practice of awareness and intentional attention. We also delve into the role of mindfulness in entrepreneurship and fostering mindful teams.
