When you prioritize your career over your well-being, you hurt both. By focusing on your well-being, however, you can improve your life, both professionally and personally. In this inspiring book, executive wellness coach Naz Beheshti explains how her MAP Method can help you restructure your life. It can make you a master of mindfulness and of the Seven A’s of resilience and stress-management, allowing you to become “CEO of your well-being.” Using personal and client stories, Beheshti offers practical tips for how you can incorporate healthier habits in your workplace and in your life.
