2. Whether you call it meditation or some other mindfulness technique (and don’t get me wrong, there are great differences in method and in results), it basically comes down to the notion that you do good by taking time to switch off, to rejuvenate, to come to peace, and to clear your mind. For some it’s music, for others its nature or a good night out with friends, maybe a motorcycle ride or a book on the patio. Find your own way, but do find a way to train that muscle called ‘the mind’, by practicing focus and by regularly switching off and regaining balance.
And as far as I'm concerned, presidents and other high-profile officials are no exception to the need to reload, switch off, and relax in order to create more focus, energy, balance, and perseverance.
