Words like meditation and mindfulness don't tend to resonate with busy entrepreneurs, for whom the mere idea of being without Wi-Fi or turning off their phones induces a panic attack.
But taking a break need not involve donning a robe and chanting cross-legged in a dark room for hours. Ten minutes is all it takes, argues Andy Puddicombe, co-founder of Headspace, a guided-meditation platform: "I don't think [entrepreneurs] can afford not to.
It's a total illusion to think that in taking time out you lose something. We gain something and become more focused, creative and productive. If we don't have 10 minutes to look after the mind, there's maybe a bigger problem."
