Kerene Strochnetter is the Managing Director of Mindful at Work, a business hell-bent on making the M-words cool in the workplace - mindfulness and meditation.

She’s also a sort after public speaker with a clear message is - if busy is the new stupid, then mindful is the new smart!
Kerene wants to get the message out: that mindfulness isn’t just limited to meditating but includes a set of robust well-researched practices, which when implemented, powerfully impact people’s lives and positively change workplace culture.

Her new book ‘Crazy Busy’ targets people suffering from the relentless pace of modern life - people who struggle to switch off and are looking for effective strategies to help to reconnect with what really matters - their lives, their work and the people close to them.

We chat mindfulness, wearing a busy badge of honor, the different paths we walk down. slowing down, focusing, and of course, dealing with discomfort.
